    "Fvck My Life, Nobody Listens To Me"

    There's so much more to do than to always look at ourselves as victims and the rest of humanity, villains. The world doesn't owe us a good life, we owe the world compassion and care. We all have our issues, let's deal with them like grown ups.

    Be strong people of the world.
