    It is hard for many people to know who they are when they are sold a false bill of materialistic and unrealistic dreams; joy and contentment are often found in small things and work well done; thinking and wearing your heart on your sleeve means facing loss mistakes disappointment and unresolved issues; it should also mean the desire to resolve past issues move on and love life; first we have to make a form of peace with ourselves, before we can effectively have healthy peaceful relationships, with family friends and strangers, because all strangers are potential friends. The reality is life contains measures of opportunities joys difficulties problems and conflict, life is hard, good friends help us carry the load.
