Stop Hiding Behind Rules

Your soul is suffering for it. Life on this planet requires rules and I like rules. I like the consistency of knowing that I can do anything I want or not.

What are the Pieces of You?

Painting by Pammy (Art by Pammy) We, humans, are made of many pieces. We are multifaceted creatures physically, emotionally and spiritually. Humans have a physical body that houses their souls.
