I do not believe in "Luck", I believe in "Fate".
Only 5 things in life needed for happiness. Someone to love you, Loyalty, Respect, Orgasms💖, and Chocolate. You have the basics, and you can work through all the other bs life throws at you.
The most secure prison we place ourselves in, and the hardest to break out of is giving a damn what other people think. Especially strangers. Even though the most toxic people in life often come disguised as friends or family. You will never find happiness and peace of mind until you break free of what people think of you.
Happiness is a choice, and it takes no more effort to achieve than the people who choose to be miserable. So, before you diagnose yourself with low self esteem or depression, first make sure you are not in fact just surrounded by a$$holes.
I ran cross country in HS and received a track scholarship for college. I earned a bachelors of science degree in criminal justice. My goal was to go into law enforcement, but circumstances changed and now I am a civilian police dispatcher.
