    Dare To Stand Alone

    I thought to share this video with you as it portrays a very good message: We should stand up for what we believe in, even if we feel alone. We should stand up for what we believe in, even if all the world condemns us for it.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_92mKlQOlk

    Distance

    I think the reason I am lonely is because I am very shy. I live a long way away from my family and I have a hard time meeting people and making lasting relationships, thanks to my chaotic childhood.
