Law of Attraction - Ask, Believe, Receive "Everyone is on their own personal journey seeking their own truth. Sometimes we take things too personal. I have found that in order to really grow as a soul, you have to come to an understanding that no matter what someone else has done to you, no matter what you with them to be, people are who they are. The less you expect from them, the less you can be hurt by them." - Melanie Koulouris
