    I wish I could say what I wanted to people without feeling guilty. I’m so concerned with hurting their feelings that I suffer because of it. Every single time, even with strangers, when it’s people I don’t like I don’t care; I know that comes off as cruel, but I see it as...

    READ This All

    THERE IS NO GUILT IN NATURE. NO ANIMAL FEELS THAT. We make a mistake, get some consequences and we get a lesson. That's all. We shouldnt feel any guilt for that anymore just remember the lesson and not to repeat the same mistake again.
