Classic Pamela Positive: The relationship I care about the most — is with…

“The relationship I care about the most — is with God.” -PH
 
Know it.
You’re a leader, and we need to be firm today. You are getting distracted by that conversation, that past event, that anger welling up within, that hurt…  again.

Pure, simple… your #1 relationship is Love, God. Stay there.
