The problem with you, my friend is that you fail to see things in a big picture. If one is struggling in one area of life this does not translate to ones total failure. The very same person can be a star performer in another area. Therefore, for an all-rounder thinker, there is nothing wrong with what the mzungu has said. Look at the big picture my friend. Appreciate what needs to be appreciated and criticize what deserves criticism.
