    I Choose To

    I used to live in the past counting my old

    hurts, or in the imagination of a future of how I’d like it to be and feel sad that I am not living it. It is a way of always putting my powers in other people, or in the hands of the “circumstances” and wait for them to change. I was someone who always blames others or...
