You know what they say about food:
'If it smells bad, throw it out!
Don't try to save it! It's not worth the possibility of food poisoning!'
It's the same story with our interactions with others…
If something feels off it probably is… Pretending not to notice the smell is dangerous!
Self deception can lead to pain and suffering!
What do ya say?
Do you face reality, even when it smells?
