Lesson 18: You can't put a filter on life. Filters were made to change the effects on a picture.filters can take your color picture and turn it to black and white, or take your new photo and make it look old. You can bring the focus to one particular area of the picture. But life isn't a picture that you can enhance to your liking; to make it fit what you want the world to see. Life is full of ups and downs, twists and turns, good and bad, but it's all meant for a purpose. But if you try to cover it with a filter, you could hinder yourself from growing, learning, and healing.
