You don't learn valuable life skills from avoiding life but rather showing up for life everyday ready to take life on with all its challenges and vital life lessons. That's what makes a warrior with the battle scars to prove it.
"Be fearless when it comes to life, and careless when it comes to what people say and think about you." So true & like I give a damn of what people think & say about me. The hell with them. They can go straight to hell!
