    Marrying My Darkness.

    I have decided to marry my darkness. I think it's important to remember your dark days. Why forget them completely? I'm not saying sit there and think about it all day, but just remember what you've been through. I think it's ok to look back once in a while and see where you've...

    Crying ?

    Pain and trials are only submitted to us in order to watch how our patience could be tested. If at first proof we begin to cry, no need to explain how the proof is lost. Better to have a bit set-back, a bit meditation and see the proof just as a schoolwork ! Best way to win in...
