Have you ever been scapegoated by family members? Have you ever had the finger pointed at you telling you you are the problem? There is a saying I heard in the 12 step rooms many years back… “when you point the finger at someone you have three fingers pointing back the other way towards you” (yes folks try it right now and you will see it is true.)

If anything I write touches you I would be so pleased to hear for the purpose of reaching out and expressung ourselves is hopefully to connect with each other and find where our souls meet.

    The Difference between the Hero and Villain is the Raw Truth is not denied or afflicted from the Villain they know what they are and accept all aspects of them.

    You laugh at me because I am not you…I laugh at you as I don’t have desire to be you ” Hahaha E.O.S
