    I think way too much about everything,

    I'm a very indecisive person and I go in depth with my thoughts before I even establish if I'm feeling "this" or "that". It's beyond frustrating most of the time, but it's not like I can help it. The views or opinions I have aren't usually ever placed without a thought. My mind...

    My home has always been a constant motion.

    It may be steady for a period of time. But I always resume moving, floating through places. Home is wherever freedom lies. Home is wherever the wind blows in my hair. Home is wherever I can sing beautiful songs. Home is wherever my head is to rest. Home has always been in the...

    True Love vs Fake Love True love is open

    or do you think some people in certain situations might be more valuable than others (say, a severely retarded patient vs. a doctor who could potentially save hundreds of lives)?
