Five Life Lessons

My Connection

One Of the biggest life changing events in my life was when my parents got divorced for the last time. This taught me alot and also gave me a sense of lost hope i still carry on into my life now. It taught me to never trust anyone , no matter what you been through or how long they have been around , trust you closest family and thats it. Also never put your everything in a relationship because then when yall break up or get divorced you wont have anything done for you. Follow your heart because at the end of the day your happiness is what is important.Never feel like you have to be in a relationship because if you're not feeling the love and the way you did at one time it probably won't work out.The last life lesson that really came to me when my parents got divorced is that sometimes no matter how hard you try some
