    Idealist And Proud.

    Craving What Is Not

    The world never seems to be enough - I have always longed for a better one, more harmonious, more enchanted. A utopia of culture and dignity, close group of sensitive and deep people around me. Accepting reality is hard sometimes. I ask myself: Why can't people be more...

    Love and Peace

    In my young adult life, I believed this world could be a better place.  If everyone felt loved,  then love could bring peace.

    It's good to know for a factt

    that there are other idealists running around, but the problem is, they are too implicit about their thoughts. Usually the energy department of an Idealist is of an introvert so I understand. But if you don't stop.being meek about your opinion, you won't change anything! I...

    I have had reoccurring thoughts on my

    Is It Worth The Effort?

    I suppose at my age I really have to ask whether I should expend effort on certain things or just let it go. Of course some things like traffic road rage incidents are pretty obvious. Let them win, who cares. They may even have a gun. You just never know anymore. The problem I...

    People, human beings,

    are meant for so much more. They, we, can be great. We can achieve things together that seem impossible now. But at the time I'm writing this, it seems that the majority of people are not even decent. They're so angry at themselves and at others, so caught up in day to day...
