Shaking tables as usual
No one wants to be wrong. It stinks and Spells failure all over. No one wants to lose or wakes up with intentionality to be the worst. We all love wins and want to eat, breath, sweat and die winning if we could. We want a Picture perfect life with the right amount of the white picket fence effect for the rest to click at.

If I fall out of just one pre planned conversation, I feel like the ground should play its back up plan of swallowing me because I immediately feel low and weird.
I constantly withdraw from the social life and focus on getting my mental health in…
