Karen Roe Quotes

But sometimes I feel like you're sitting out your life on account of me, and I don't want that for you. My past is not your future, okay?

Karen

Skills: Your boy Skills.

Happiness is not a destination. It is a mood, it is not permanent. It comes and goes and if people thought that way then maybe people would find happiness more often.
