1. In my quest for answers, I stumbled upon a very important idea. What exactly is it that drives a person crazy? All other variables aside, a clear answer formed in my mind. I thought to myself, it MUST be all about where a person lives! Right?
2. Say you grow up on a farm.. the focus there is family.. work… and ethics. You don’t grow up with a ton of people and can just enjoy a quiet, relaxing life.
