Shedding Some Light on My Last Post

I have had some very interesting reactions to my last post about life not being easy and not being fair. I thought I'd share them with you. The first reaction I received dealt with the .gif of the young girl having a temper tantrum. I was told the picture was very insulting as the person [...]
