#fact: Trust no one but yourself. Each and every person who allows you to vent to them – no matter how long you have known them, no matter how close you feel to them, and especially if they are family – they are secretly or maybe openly judging you, assessing your situation, and choosing a side before they hear all sides of a subjective story… and they do this knowing full well they have there own set of personal imperfections.
I share this as motivation to keep your mind and actions pure in good intentions. Even as a good deed may create “punishment” you will also gain retribution if you had a righteous work at hand. Simply stay true to yourself and your inner compass.
