    I really like the quotes especially the people need to eat real food. I think that one of the underlying emotion that is toxic to ourselves is that we care too much about what other people will say about us instead of focusing on what makes us happy and doing what we think is best for ourselves because in the long run, it is us who is responsible for our own happiness.
