Some people who believe in reincarnation neglect their own responsibilities. There is always a very convenient excuse: that happens because of my past life!
Now you are an adult and you can take your own responsibility in your hands, even if you feel your parents were overprotective. Leave this past behind. This world is not evil and not that dangerous at all. It is there to enjoy.
You are not responsible for everything and everybody. Relax, lean back and watch what others are doing. It is fine, enjoy whatever comes!
Take your own responsibility without relying on others or thinking about other people’s judgment.
