    Someone explain what's wrong with this: "I

    have the right to be offended." There's something very wrong with this, but I don't know what it is.

    Everyone's the protagonist of their own movie.

    The only problem with that is....you know....everyone's their own protagonist. You might think you matter a lot to people when in reality who knows. They could easily just be laughing at you behind your back

    I don't believe in things

    until I have proof. That includes believing what anyone says. You can talk all you want, but you need action to back up your words.

    Today, I thought I would brave the heavy traffic

    and ride downtown to my appointment. The city is bicycle friendly, and I see people with young children in the kids seat riding these roads. I was a bit nervous at first...and with good reason. I ended up riding a bit on the roads, a lot on the sidewalks, intermingled with just...

    It is such a shame when people play the victim

    for the better part of their life, granted I did play the weak and helpless card in my younger years (I'm not even in my 20's yet). Age shouldn't be an indicator for how a person should act, it should instead be about how that person chooses to act. I choose not to be a victim...

    I love a good dose of fantasy

    as much as the next person, but sometimes you have to "get real about your life" as Dr. Phil would put it. Doesn't mean you have to be all gloom and doom about it, you should just have a balance between fantasy and reality. Simples.

    When we spend too much time playing out our

    fantasies, the lines between the imaginary and real might become blurred. In the end, we will be overcome with longing for the imagined to become the ultimate reality. (So no thanks, that means NO to a steamy, erotic chat. Capiesce?)

    People keep saying I'm a negative person.

    But I don't think I am, I am just realistic. Life isn't full of happy endings and that's not being pessimistic it's just being real.

    To be realistic, life would suck

    if you stop dreaming and trying. Nothing wrong with trying to most of if not all your dreams come true - but you have to work for it. Can't expect it to be handed over to you.

    A pessimistic person sees the glass half empty.

    An optimistic person sees the glass is half full. A realist sees that it's just half a glass.
