Pardoned

Bitterness was always something that I was accustomed to, but thanks to other bitter people, I’m now realizing why that was.

My Personal Observed Digest

Life is actually designed to challenge us; to work against us. It is not designed to work with us.

A few nights ago, I had a terrible nightmare that was all-consuming. Do you ever have that type of dream that is lucid and so realistic that it seems as though it is actually happening?
