Keep in mind:
#1 is you
#2 is her
#3 is your kids
And if you ain't the biological dad, why the fuck are you with this chick for more'n a root-'em-and-boot-'em.
Things to live by:
* never give chase, always be chased
* they won't live by your rules, they're not in your life
* keep it simple - drama is for morons
* love is a Hollywood make-believe, like unicorns that shit rainbows
In the end it all comes down to simple rules of thumb.
