Quote, "Don't become the mess that surrounds you," Be yourself; don't follow some else's footsepss; create your own. A lot of my peers aren't following a positive path in life at the moment, but I continue to hope that they wind their way before it's too late.... whether they take a right or a left, that they won't be ruined spiritually, mentally, physically, or emotionally.

My layers are hectic, but sometimes you have to go throught the worst to realize you deserve the best for yourself.
