Sanity In Relationships And In Life

Sanity is a great good. Sanity is very underrated too. Given the choice between “being swept away” and sanity, choose sanity. Because good love only finds you when you are sane.

Your Life Is Dear. So Is Your Love.

Even if you despise platitudes, you might have experienced what the other person is describing. You just don’t agree with the conclusion or the way it is said.
