    At moments I think my life is

    as perfect as a movie and then I think everything is falling apart instead. Without any change happening in between. Why can we not be more stable?

    My mom is sick and our family desperately needs

    the money. Is prostitution a good idea if I'm not making enough?

    Why do people get mad over someone wearing a

    military/soldier uniform? Saying that the uniform has to be earn and it's disrespectful to the country. I've just seen a video of a man wearing the uniform to go shopping on black Friday. But what about Native American headdresses.. I'm pretty sure it has to be earn too but...

    What are you supposed to think

    if a guy says "let's hang out" and then never makes plans or never gets back to you. What is with the mind games people!! It can't be a simple thing ever. Two people who like each other and want to spend time together. That's all I want. Is that so much to ask for?

    I love my man with all my heart.

    Haven't been intimate in 3 years. Just met a guy a few days ago and we just had phone sex today. My man told me that he would let me go as a Fiancé and keep me as a friend. I felt so happy after having a long conversation and phone sex with the new guy. He's everything I...

    Our parents raise us to be

    who we want. Follow our dreams. My sister raised me to be the real me. But the real me likes girls. Is that a sin? Our parents guide us to be us, then say we're ****** because we're being ourselves. Very contradicting, right? I'm confused as to why we can never please anyone.

    I know this is a pretty typical story to hear

    from someone my age but I just want to get this off my chest. (No matter how stupid I sound) So a few weeks ago in one of my classes, I was talking to one of my guy friends. (I kind of like him) and he came up behind me and slammed a book near my ear and I screamed. He died...

    At 32 years of age, I still haven't found my

    true calling. I enjoy many things, most of which are nearly impossible to make a living doing. I volunteer and participate in what I enjoy, but these are, of course, part time endeavors. I am a mother, and that's very important to me, but in this day and age, and with my life in...

    I know someone going through puberty

    and i don't know how to help them. They fight everyone, anything you say will be personal and hurtful. Their mood swings are crazy. And their hygiene is gross. They don't brush their teeth and rarely wash their hair. I was wondering how can i help without becoming the enemy?

    The point of a lie is to protect something.

    So what is the point of ever telling the truth. It sure doesn't hurt as much. I am scared of what the truth could mean. Does it mean war or peace?

    I have never been the type to let it go.

    I can't just rip it off like a bandaid and feel the pain for a moment than be done with it. No, I like to pick at it until it becomes irritated and even more painful. So it serves as a constant reminder of what I can't do and what I have done. ++

    Where can I find my family history by bloodline

    because I want to know where I come from the furthest I know is my great great grandparents who died in the 80s.... I don't want to use ancestry and I would pay money to get a genealogist (I think that's what it is) if needed.

    Isn't it strange when guys say the opposite of

    what they think? And even stranger when it works? Why don't all guys realize that throwing fake compliments and trying to flatter is corny? But then again every guy I like turns out to be bad...very bad actually lol Don't take guy advice from me!
