by “Expectation is the root of all heartache.” Some say it was Sir William Shakespeare quoted, but some say it wasn’t. It wasn’t me regardless, because I used to debate its truthfulness. I’ve come to appreciate how very accurate it is now though. I think expectation is more of a burden than anything. Every day, […]

So now what?

Can’t dodge em all.

by The truth of the matter is at some points in your life, you will be taken advantage of, used, manipulated, overlooked, undervalued, cheated on, lied to, ridiculed, persecuted.
