Affirmation and Deficiency

Affirmations are ways of soothing vulnerabilities in troubling times. But this can be a sign of deficiency that needs to be addressed in times of peace. Truth is only palatable to those who appreciate it’s value. If you only appreciate how something makes you feel, and the not the sacrifice made for it for someone…


Moments of Peace
