    We've all heard "don't play victim in life".

    It wasn't until I put that into action that I started living. I stopped being a victim! **** happens to everyone and my challenge wasn't unique. And my next step was accepting responsibility for my life. I am responsible for my happiness, my sadness, my anger, my life. Yes...

    I accept my imperfection just fine,

    because I know you're not perfect either. If you want to argue the point, please do it with someone else :))

    I have made many mistakes in my life.

    I am not perfect. And I will continue to make mistakes and disappoint others. Even though I regret my past mistakes, I will use them as stepping stones. I will rise from my imperfections, victorious, and with the ones I love.

    Immodest? I try to be good in all I do.

    It isn't an easy path because there are so many things I feel unjust. I am an optimist about humankind because we are so innovative. I feel our potential to overcome our problems will in time lead mankind forward especially to face the problems of a post fossil fuels world. I...

    Who I Am

    I was married for 15 years and we became more like friends and were divorced. That relationship took away much of my sexual and personal confidence, and made it hard to trust my partner. I am so glad to have found Kelly, and have her in my life. She has not only restored these...

    I may not be pretty or have the perfect body,

    I will admit, but I have a great personality and a kind heart. I have my flaws, I will say. But I am a very nice person if you ever get to know me. :)

    Imperfect Me

    "I am a flower quickly fading... here today and gone tomorrow... a wave tossed in the ocean... a vapor in the wind. Still, you hear me when I'm calling. And you catch me when I'm falling. And you told me who I am... I am Yours."

    I am my definition of what a good person is.

    You can always find someone who will beg to differ on the characteristics a “good person” has. I’m forgiving, but it doesn’t mean I’m a pushover or will continue to put myself in a position to be victimized. I’m generally generous, but that doesn’t mean I will...

    Some days I try harder than others. Some nights I wonder why I bother. The definition of what it means to be "good" varies.. And religion has nothing to do with goodness at all.
