You cannot control the behavior of others, but you can always choose how you respond to it.
A Black Rose because it symbolizes death & passing away, also indicates a major change or upheaval in the future. In that sense a black rose also means courage & resistance , death of old habits, and old order. A Black Rose inspires confidence & enthusiasm by signaling the birth of a new era of hope & joy.
I know who I am. When I look in the mirror, I see me.
