Thought for the day
Life has taught us that you cannot control someone’s loyalty. No matter how good you are to them, it does not mean they will treat us the same. No matter how much they mean to you, it does not mean they will value you the same. Sometimes the people you love the most turn out to be the people you can trust the least. True.
