You Are Not What You Attract

You Are Not What You Attract

“You are not what you attract. You are what you accommodate. There are some nuances, but all in all, this remains true. A hard truth for many. You will attract all types of things.

Is this observation a Lagos/Uniben thing?

I attended Auchi Polytechnic briefly while in Edo state for my Neco exams. That was a long time ago. I would follow Morse to his evening classes sometimes, wander around the school and meet his friends – One of them was a talented guitarist named Emma Songz. He’s dead now.
