DESPERATION

DESPERATION

Desperation can be a good thing. I used to be so worried about "bothering people." It was my greatest fear. I never want to make things difficult for others, or come across as annoying. I used to think it was one of the worst things in the world, to come across as desperate. But I've [...]
