So love the people who treat you right, forget about the ones

Nobody said that it'd be easy, they just promised it would be worth it."

and discover what is wrong with them,
and we can easily build up an argument for our own side of the

the situation that comes into our life and sit down with it frankly and
say: "What did I do, or what have I said that has contributed to this situation?"
Dr. Preston Bradley
