Photo | Edwin Tse | ♡ His Work As I go about life, I talk to people.  So do you.  Interacting with people is great, but not all interaction leaves the same aftertaste.  Truthful lips are sweet, but lying lips are as bitter as wormwood. I started thinking about why I’m hesitant to believe some people, yet not […]
