Life’s a bitch.
People are assholes.

My final thought for today. I believe in the goodness of humanity. This is the lens that I have chosen to view my world with. So instead of seeing the negative around me, I chose to be sincere, to smile, and to look for an opportunity to spread goodness.
It also means that I feel really vulnerable and emotionally drained when I am surrounded by negativity. — We’ll talk about that next week
