Today I was talking with an acquaintance that I thought had everything. Beautiful wife, 3 gorgeous daughters, great job. Life was good, right?! Well, turns out beautiful wife is an alcoholic, a bad alcoholic. They've been married 30+ years and she's been sober less than one of them. He stands by her, go figure. His dad died of melanoma and he has had cancers removed himself.
The fairy tale...it doesn't exist. A trick of smoke and mirrors and what we all envy...? Really, its a joke.
