Rather than letting the fact you are at-risk hold you back or bring you down, it can be used to encourage yourself to achieve what you want to achieve in life, whatever that may be. Sometimes, achieving what you want to achieve can mean making a lot of changes in life, or being brave and determined about what you want to do in life. The point is that being at-risk does not always have to be a ‘dark cloud’ hanging over people – it can be the encouragement to go on in life and achieve the things you want to achieve.
