People are all born the same way. But, the situation and place where they are born are all different. People may be treated the same infront of the law, but there is no mechanism for giving the rest of the things equally. Different economic conditions, people around them, and much more things form their perspective. It is what shapes us all.
It can be a reason too. But, when it comes to following your instincts your situation doesn’t command how things must go. You decide on how you need to turn things accordingly. Keep iterating, improve and move.
When the situations are hard, it really needs something much more than just an experience. Taking a simple decision in the moment of complete pressure is one of the toughest tasks.
