    I think far too much,

    I over think most things, but, it also prepares me for life's crap! If it happens then no doubt I've already thought about it and know how to deal with it! I clearly have too much time on my hands and sometimes wish my brain would shut up :)

    Sometimes I worry I spend too much time

    thinking. You need a healthy balance of spending your time inside and outside of your own head but I tend to spend all of my time inside.

    I think we focus too much on individuality

    instead of us as a whole. Every one wants what they want, and they'll spend their whole lives trying to get it, without consideration for anyone's well being. If we all worked together as a whole, humanity wouldn't be as evil as it is put out to be. But, it's only a dream

    My boyfriend just made me realize something.

    He goes "man, we just have so many stresses.." after talking about our debts and paying rent and other things. He gets stressed out easily so I always try to make him see the positive even though I don't always see that much light either.. "They're really not "stresses" they're...

    I over analyze many things

    that need no analyzation. Simple things turn into the catch-all closet I shouldn't have opened. Though I feel closer to the answer, reality fades away. Uncertainty is what I've created. And it's all mine.

    Though memories can be meaningful,

    it's not what we see when we look over our shoulder that counts, in as much as what we see as we look towards the horizon. To love, to laugh to enjoy life..all good things to enjoy now and down the road. We all have a "chance to plan a brand new day."

    I think a lot. Sometimes things

    I over think things too much to the point

    where I have constant mood swings. One second I will be happy then the next I will be crying. I think way too much of the past and I get mad at myself for so many mistakes that can not be changed.

    Life is very hard. The only reason,

    I can think of, for life is to help your fellow human beings. Do the best you can at all times, that is how you measure success. Everyone is striving for one thing: happiness. Question is: What makes me happy and how do I get it?

    problems blame it all on love. I mean what is love really? Love is an emotion. Not a person. It is oblivious to its own power. And it all depends on the person that possesses this feeling but I can't help but wonder why we do this? Then I hear this "Cami you've never been in...

    Is it truly worth it to die
