    Rules are hard for me to define.

    They are guidlines made to control people. For me they are "recommendations" not orders. I believe that rules can help people, but can't control them. I'm a person whose an introvert, so I have to think different than the mainstream, and despite that I see things more mature...

    "Happy birthday!" The most common phrase

    that will be directed at me tomorrow. I enjoy the celebrations, and the fun of birthdays. But, my entire world has seemingly been falling apart recently. But I don't have a problem forgetting all the stress, and giving up on the guilt for one day. Letting to of anything that...

    it's amazing how one anonymous person on an app

    like this, can keep me sane. so many kind hearted people on this Earth, but sad to know that someone I don't know, understands me better than those I'm around daily.

    Finally!

    A time comes in your life when you finally get it. When in the midst of all your fears and insanity you stop dead in your tracks and somewhere the voice inside your head cries out - ENOUGH! Enough fighting and crying or struggling to hold on. And, like a child quieting down...

    I dream and think about lots of things some of

    Shadows of Thought

      I was reading through my journals recently. Fifteen-years-old seems so long ago. I guess some things are better left in the past, unthought of and unseen.  Maybe I shouldn't have read those notebooks. Still, I can’t help but feel bad for the girl who...

    Thank God For Tomorrow!

    When I was 15 I believed that I was gifted - how or why, I don't know - But I believed it. I knew then that no matter what I did, my life would be successful and struggle would be a word I read in someone else story, but not mine. Mine featured success, fortune and interest...

    I've spent hours, days,

    weeks and months dreaming about the things I want to fulfill before I get old and die. No matter what I have been through, even if its some form of hell. I still dream. The fact that I dream is what keeps me going, and moving forward. My dreams and thoughts are indestructible.

    Dreamers &Amp; Thinkers Arise!

    Why do we punish ourselves for dreaming? Through dreams we can think about a possible future! If not for dreams I'd bet we'd still be in caves. Not to mention how miserable we can be without dreams! Why do you think we are so hard on ourselves for daydreaming? Right! Back to work...

    "We all just want be loved in one form

    Romantic Relationships Are Like A Quilt

    It started when I was young,
