Oh, the shackles we put on ourselves. It is not the world that limits us, society, or the people in our lives. The chains are not put on us from where we come from or how much money we have. None of them constrain us as much as we do to ourselves. The mental chainsContinue reading “Thursday Motivation November 7, 2019”
