Yeah, well as an inventor//artist/writer/entrepreneur I am well aware of the “thieves”….
As a small child not quite 3 years old I was informed my life was to be stole from me by a man I was given to who admitted in the first 1hr I was not his child & never would be. Made millions $$ for him and still have him wanting to steal more from me.
But on the other hand, I have so much achieved by my hand in life & no one can take that away.
Like you say, in the end we know the truth!
Enjoy life & survive well. Thrive!
