Take Up The Space

The other day I was on Twitter and wrote a quote tweet that got quite a bit of unexpected attention. It didn’t go viral or anything but it get more attention than my other tweets.

It’s unfair to be asked that society asks such a thing. Plus, constant positivity is not truthful. It’s not real. I’ve had plenty… Continue reading Greatest Expectations
