    I Chose To Give More Than I Recieve

    As a giver at a young age,i am not sad when i do not receive from anyone.Through giving i found joy.I have decided to give more to myself now and i really enjoyed it.Not that i am not giving but because i have forgotten to give myself for too long.

    I have a small amount of best friends

    who care and are there for me and that's all I need. People want everything it seems. Be grateful for what you already have

    Try no best friends who care.

    Watch who u call your best friend because most likely that person will always put themselves before you.
