Believe what your eyes show you, what your gut tells you. And don’t waste time with those who are undeserving of good things. Those who don’t care about doing right by their kids. Who time after time put them in situations that will burn terrible memories and a lifetime of fears in their hearts. Those people who live behind false truths and judgements of those who stand by them. Who have nothing yet blame others. Who focus on their own needs. There is good reason to question everything someone says when you catch them in lie after lie. A true judge of character is not your dog.
Forgive me for expecting you to be a good person. How foolish of me to expect you to have some class and be an adult.
