Quick interesting read. "Who We Really Are" It's about the strangeness of life,it's difficult question to answer.Do we actually know that person we see in the mirror?Do we like what we see? Are we familiar with our reflection?Do we recognize our needs? would we recognize joy if lacking the feelings of sadness? And many another questions.Some of the questions we try to ignore,for some, we don't have the answer,and if we do, we don't like them,so, we continue with our life...Feelings,bad or good,are our best gifts ever,so treasure them,smile mote often,because regrettable mistakes we formulate with a serious look on our face. GREAT STORY.
