Lost Hope

To live and love is to risk getting hurt, to lose those we love, to be betrayed or victimized, and to lose hope.

How you look is directly related to how you feel, and how others relate to you. Better posture, a little toning and firming, a longer neck, and a flatter tummy are all directly related to your self-esteem.
