Do This, Not That

This was a really great article I read today that rang very true. A lot of times when I get upset that people don’t try to help me up when I fall or even acknowledge it, people play devil’s advocate and say “well maybe they just didn’t want to embarrass you” or different versions of … More Do This, Not That
