“If you always do what you have always done, you will always get what you always got!
Take control of ‘what happens next’ by breaking through the monotonous cycle that have left you apprehensive of meaningful relationship, disheartened by the scene, or simply feeling suffocated by the perception of a ‘community’ that you aren’t sure even exists.
