In life things are not always as they seem, there are some people whose intentions are not honorable who try to paint a rosy picture to distract, or hide the truth to achieve a hidden agenda. These people have an uncanny ability to sense weakness and naivety, preying on the people that they perceive as weak and innocent. We may all start out believing a person has good intentions, but that illusion can be tainted due to a bad experience. They say “you live and you learn”, but sometimes the lesson comes too late to make a difference in a particular situation, as a result the deceived may find it hard to forgive them-self, because of their gullible nature at the time. In my book “Why Ruin Another Life” the character Marva sees an opportunity that she thinks will better her life, but later learns all opportunities are not golden ones. Over time she see’s the people that she thought were there for her are not what they pretended to be, and forever blames herself for her bad decision making. We always must be mindful that things are not what they appear to be, remember a wolf can be disguised in sheep’s clothing.
