If I can give you any gift, I would give you the gift of self-awareness, knowing who you are. You know, most people lie to themselves. They lie about why they do things. They lie because they want to be accepted by people, they want to be liked by people.

Well, all that does is let’s you live a life that someone else has defined for you. You have to live your life on your terms and what works for you. You know,read more]
