Thanks for the improvment, looks good to me and quite impressive speed

Kind regards,

You will continue to suffer
if you have an emotional reaction to everything that is said to you.
True power is sitting back and observing everything with logic.
If words control you that means everyone else can control you.
Breathe and allow things to pass.
