Do You Know Who You Are?

Do You Know Who You Are?. Advertisements

Don’t mind them – they wouldn’t survive any of this.

A few days ago, I read a real life story about a man whom out of no fault of his own lost everything he ever had. He was dismissed from his job and became the subject of criminal legal proceedings by his employers, so he couldn’t find another job. His house was repossessed and he … Continue reading

Yesterday I found myself at the … Continue reading
