    Are WW aware that BM are flocking to them

    because they get free housing, car, their child support payments paid, free food, they don't have to work and if they do work, they're taking care of some side piece chick while giving them mere crumbs. While their away, they get to play. These BM are merely PIMPING WW. A...

    Even in the deepest love relationship -

    when lovers say 'I love you' to each other - we don't really know what we're saying, because language isn't equal to the complexity of human emotions. Duane Michals

    Friends can help each other.

    A true friend is someone who lets you have total freedom to be yourself - and especially to feel. Or, not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at the moment is fine with them. That's what real love amounts to - letting a person be what he really is. Jim Morrison

    I'm convinced of this: Good done anywhere is

    good done everywhere. For a change, start by speaking to people rather than walking by them like they're stones that don't matter. As long as you're breathing, it's never too late to do some good. Maya Angelou

    Sometimes you hold back from talking to someone.

    ..not because if your pride or because you fear rejection, but because you know deep down that if they wanted to be in your life, they would've made the ******* effort.

    Words are easy, but I think it’s more

    important to demonstrate you truly care for someone (friend/lover/spouse/etc.) by the way you act and the little things you do for them. Whether you can be with them to demonstrate in person or find ways to show it from a distance, actions truly do speak louder than words.
