In the storm I do two things;
1. Count my blessings.
2. Pray for the homeless, the old, the animals and those who endure the terror of those sounds when sheltering from bombs, not rain.
In the storm I do two things.
This is so important.
"As a society, we deal with violence, especially sexual violence, against women in much the wrongheaded manner that we have fought the war on drugs. We focus on the supply-side, with an emphasis on the things that women must do to “stay safe” instead of focusing on lessening mens’ “demand” to view women as purely a disposable commodity. In short, we emphasize how women can prevent being assaulted instead of telling men and boys not to assault women in the first place."

The concept of keeping your friends close but your enemies closer is not lost upon me.
I understand it, I do. But it seems to me to be the most miserable way to live your life.
To keep the people around you that you don’t trust, don’t like, don’t respect and that you feel may be out to get you in some way, because you might end up needing to use them in the future is not something I do. And is not something I would ever recommend doing either.
Keep your friends close, and keep your enemies as far away as possible.
If they don’t aid or enhance or compliment your life in some way, get gone. Surround yourself with people that love you, understand you (or try to) that can laugh with you and cry with you, always have your back and want the best for you.
There are enough people in the world that don’t wish you success or happiness, do yourself a favour and don’t give them entry into your life, especially not the inner circle. Reserve that for your favourites and give yourself a chance at happiness. Because happiness isn’t where your enemies are, that’s for damn sure.
A man walks down the street
And he says
Why am I soft in the middle?
Why am I soft in the middle when the rest of my life is so hard?
The amount I miss you isn’t normal.
And yet, I miss you anyway.
