The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. No price is too high for the privilege of owning yourself. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

    So what is the value of your comment ?

    There is a saying floating around the planet which surely, at some stage, even you must have heard.

    It follows something along the lines of .. If You Have Nothing Good To Say, Then Say Nothing At All.

    You seemed to have missed something in life. Its called ‘Personal Development’.

    Google it.

    I am of the strong belief that if there is breath, there is hope.

    Good luck.
