Be true to yourself first and foremost.
Honesty is still the best policy.
Always tell the truth, so that you do not have to memorize your answers.
I cannot swallow to be friends or to be associated with people of low caliber: sociopaths, pathological liars, scammers, back stabbers, low life, scum bags, opportunists, sex offenders, and drama queens.
At this day and age, I will choose whom I will associate myself with. No more being nice. I am realistic. I have learned my lessons well.
My words are evocative, so they say. But , I am only responsible for what I wrote, not for your feelings. Your analysis to my post is a pronouncement of your predicament, not mine.
Indeed sociopaths are akin to leopards: never change their spots.
I am right all along to detach myself from such dire and muddy situation.
I am still fortunate. I remain HAPI.
