I am turning 40 this week. I am incredibly grateful to be here, and for all that I have learned in the past forty years of my life.
This is a list of forty things/people that I have learned NEVER to place my trust in. This does not mean that they must always be avoided, but approached with the wisdom of deep and abiding skepticism.
I have learned to always follow the money trail in any situation. I have learned to always look to who stands to gain, or what power stands to be leveraged.
We do not live in a simple world, or an easy one. Without mustering the bravery to swim against the stream in this society, I honestly do not believe that I would be living the life that I am today.
