Quote with a question for you…..

We create our own misery and unhappiness. The purpose of suffering is to make us understand we are the ones who cause it.

Willie Nelson

What do you think about that???

  1. Strange…I was working on a poem today about this topic…from a somewhat different perspective…but a similar theme..the difficulty I see with the last part of the question (“..
