Simple reminder

Let us stop bashing each other because the final decision is already made. We should always unit and settle our differences against each other. Nothing will be done right when people will continue to raise their hatred towards others. You will never find peace with bitterness, envy, and hatred.

Acceptance, humility, and love are the three of the most important things that each and everyone should ponder in order to become productive and prosperous.
