Lust and infatuation part 5 

Silent anger is the worst anger because you never know what a person is thinking and they’re too far gone to think clearly…  Vanessa  I have to go through six weeks of physical therapy. I’ve been through three so far, and I’m regaining my strength to talk again. The swelling in my head has went…

Keep going. 💪🏾
