I Am a Tough Cookie

How and why people are just about coping with life 182 People

    Well... Let'S See...

    I think I am naturally a tough person and my ideas are just about as original as they can get. When I was little people would just tell me to wait and I'd understand when I was older or I'd grow out of it and I'd look at them like they were stupid. Its always been an annoyance...

    40% Pure Gristle

    That's me.It's an approximation mind you, some might think it's more 60%, while others might say 20%...it's subjective I suppose. I like to think as sensitive as I am, I am at least that tough as well. I can and have dealt with a lot in my life. I really hope the future is easier...

    Things Roll

    Okay this is the way it is... much of the time I can let little offensive things roll right off of me. That is just an area I am continuing to grow and improve in. That said.... I am very direct and say what I think. If you are thin-skinned you will not last around me. If you...
