“I shall revenge myself in the cruelest way you can imagine. I shall forget it.” ~ John Steinbeck, The Winter of Our Discontent

There will always be people out there who want to hurt you, and to make you feel like you are less than you are. They may write you, out of the blue one day, and tell you that you are nothing but a Filipina single mother living in a cruel Western world, and that you are destined to be abandoned and left alone. The words may sting you momentarily, but you pick yourself up, continue to live your life, and you exact your revenge by living happily without them.
