    Unfortunately I always try to live up to

    peoples expectations. I don't try to do it, it just happens. So when I don't do things perfectly or what I think people will be happy with I have severe panic attacks/breakdowns. Why does the world have so many standards in which some of us feel like we have to fit into? I...

    I'm a pretty soft-spoken person.

    I'm the type who is always listening and rarely speaking during a conversation. Maybe this stems from being raised by a talkative and outspoken mother who could literally talk for hours while I just sat there and mostly listened. It's almost like I never developed that part of...

    My life goal is to become a better person every

    day. The only person I'm trying to outdo is the me from yesterday. Whenever I act selfish or complain about something insignificant, I remind myself of the MJ lyrics, "If you wanna make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make a change."
