🙏đŸģ Religion?

  • Nope, I have no religious affiliation.
  • I have no problem with others following a religion of their choice.
  • I see every religion equally as one way or the other, it is a means to get in touch with our creator.

👑 Politics?

  • Nothing here too! I have absolutely no interest in politics.
  • When you are busy with improving yourself, your skills and your individuality, political views hardly matter.
