Food for thought:
Everyone has had or has presently, someone in your life that makes you feel like, well, like a dog that has been beat too much. (metaphorically speaking)
Take heed! You cannot belittle someone on a regular basis and expect that their reaction will always be the same….no! They may grow tired of turning away and cowering and decide it is time to stand up and take a chunk of your ass with them! Bon appétit!
