Female , 18-21

I believe in a simple, uncluttered life filled with people whose company I enjoy, and lots of sun and outdoor activities. I love meeting and getting to know new people, but am just as fond of spending time with old friends who know me through and through and still love me!

Anyone who knows me at all will tell you that I'm an optimist - in fact, some people resent my constant positivity. Strangely enough, in the past I've been depressed, and even had an anxiety disorder. It used to make me ashamed to look back at the person I used to be. But really - experiences that shape us and teach us are nothing to be ashamed of! In fact, it's actually a blessing to have experienced things that can help me understand and help others who are feeling the same! My new way of looking at the world is a gift - and if I can help to brighten someone's day, or be the person who listens when no one else will - then my day is that much better because of it!

Favorite Quote Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.

I Do Not Like People to See Me Cry

Crying: A Strength Or Weakness? Now I've always been a firm believer in keeping problems to myself. I've lived by the mantra "no one likes a downer!", and have strived to always be happy and content. That's what everyone strives for... [more]

  • I Am a Hopeless Romantic

    Hopeless Romantic Or Hopelessly Disillusioned? It's true - I'm a hopeless romantic! I don't like to admit it, because it sounds a bit pathetic and sappy; but I'm a sucker for romance! I think I love the idea of things perhaps more than the reality… [more]

  • Lonely but not alone.

    Sometimes I feel so incredibly lonely. I have so many friends, good friends even, but I don't feel like I'm indispensable to anyone. And no one is indispensable to me. It's sad being so detached, but I don't know how else to be. I don't know how to care. What's wrong with me?I'm so sick of being the one who shoulders everyone's problems, and still trying to appear perpetually happy. Maybe that's why I'm not close to anyone; they're more than happy sharing all their problems with me, and crying on my shoulder, but once they've done that I feel like I have to be the stable one. And nothing too unsettling ever happens to me anyway, so I just shoulder everyone else's issues. And to be honest, I'… [more]
