Give, Hope, Love, Live

So many times in life we shy away from things because we have been hurt before, we shy away from the very things that we want most of all. The fear of disappointment can sometimes take over our need or want, hiding it into the oblivion and warping our perceptions. Those perceptions can often get thrown “helter skelter” and as we go on they get … Continue reading Give, Hope, Love, Live
