" We all need a shoulder to cry on, to lean on, where love and care is plenty and ample, without any conditions laid; a corner in the room of life where we feel no need to pretend, no need to pull the mask onto your face, as there is unconditional love and care in that place. Where love is given to the soul and not to the body, where love in its purest form dwells in somebody."

I wrote this quote after gathering my thoughts one day. After having some time to myself to reflect, I learned that no matter how strong you think you can be, if you allow yourself to be in a situation where your beliefs are sacrificed, you too will fall in that category.
