< Dear Christel,

I'm sad to hear that life is not happy at the moment you. God knows, I know how difficult it is, when it seems nothing has been folded and little happy.

Although tips are usually given in good faith, they are, sometimes, sore soul - because they remind us that you can not give yourself the love you show to people around

  • No one can decide when it will return to the sunny weather, but it will return. li >

    < NO.

    < They will be held; the truth will be.

    Just as we accept the bad weather outside the window, we should accept that sometimes life is seen in the gloomy light. "It's been a lousy day" - that's perfectly realistic approach. The main thing - do not forget the mind to reveal umbrella. < «Well, well, in the rain ... well, okay, that's not my fault. I can not do anything about it, just wait. And tomorrow, maybe the sun had come back, and when it comes back, I'm going to enjoy it in full. »
