"I think adults and children relate to someone who’s been hurt, because we’ve all been hurt in our lives. Somebody has betrayed us and it has made us put our wall up and it has made us furious, and it changes who we are. We’ve all had that experience, on any levels, but we can all relate to that. Then it’s the choices that we make and what we have to live with when we make those choices, and we’ve all had to do that as well – to live with bad choices." [x]

You say not all men are monsters?

Imagine a bowl of M&Ms. 10% of them are poisoned.

Go ahead. Eat a handful.

Not all M&Ms are poison.

Do not make
out of people.
This will leave you
and sad,
missing arms that
cannot hold
hearts with
shaky foundations.
