    Be Yourself

    Be who you are. Trying to be someone else only hurts you. You will never know if others truly love you for the real you

    When I met him. I fell

    for him little by little. He was my air that I need to breathe. He was my heart that I wanted to love. He was the man in my dreams that I wanted to come true. He was my all. We was young but we love so strong and so much passion and desire. We was in sync for one another...

    I've realize in life some people are not

    capable of changing even they try. I've learn to accept them for who they are because they will die that way.

    I accepted you for who you are.

    Even though I knew what you did and what you were doing. A mutual friend would tell me how you were and what you done. But I didn't care. I knew you couldn't have done it to me. I thought to myself that I could help you. I wanted to help you and help you make better decision...

    Nobody should change

    My favorite college professor always said

    "Always be kinder than necessary - everyone you meet is fighting a battle." I think of this often - it's one of the best things I've ever learned in a classroom.

    judged. We are all unique energy forces living together in human form...accepting others as they are is accepting ourselves.

    So many people, so many different backgrounds.

    Everyone with their own unique story to tell. The past making us into who we are. I cannot judge, as I would like you not to judge me.

    No one should have to change

    for anybody - the expectation in itself is a severe stressor in a person's life (ie. the one with the expectation). Like many other women before me I went through a "phase" and became involved with the "Bad boy type" when I was younger. As little girls we are taught to believe...

    Or do I simply wish I did?

    No matter how hard we try not to judge, or how hard we try to accept people as they are, there will always be a small part of us that continues to resist, that will judge and try to change others. The most we can do is acknowledge that part in order to fight it. It takes time...
