This lesson set me free. People don´t understand it´s a choice you make, still they try to make you follow their way of life as the only way ever and judge those who don´t. You know what? Free will is a blessing.

Tuesday, August 30th 2016

    I agree with you Emanoel. Be single and free can be a blessing… o/

Very popular question Ronnie. I used to hear this question pretty often back in Peru. Oh you’re gonna be 30 in a few years.Are you planning to be single all your life?
I made fun of them every time I answered to those stupid questions.

Tuesday, August 30th 2016

    It’s not a stupid question! It’s very difficult to live alone! Trust me. Catch someone. Use any trick till it’s not too late. Good luck. :)

I am kidding. I love you and your lessons! :)

Excellent Ronnie. Definitely people judges other all the time. I am a 47 year-old man and still a bachelor, however some people thinks that I am confirmed one because of this. C’mon, I just like a different way, and I love women.
