thoughts in manifestation
"I’m examining my life and trying to figure out where to place my bets."
"What’s the worst bet you’ve ever made?"
"That would be a relationship."
"I entered into a relationship with a con artist. The thing is— I’m normally very methodical and calculated about things, but I let my desire for companionship override my logic, and I let myself be blinded. He used the pretense of a relationship to gather information about me, and by the time I figured out what was going on, he’d already stolen about $30,000 from me. It also affected my future relationships, of course. You always want to enter a relationship from a position of trust, and I have a hard time doing that now."
