Don't Take Anything Personally

You know that feeling? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ˜– ...when you find out someone did you wrong, like really wrong. Either betrayed you, or abandone

The next time someone does you wrong, look up to the clouds for a reminder. It has nothing to do with you... and feelings come and go like clouds on a windy day. ๐Ÿ’š
