    The Hesitance Of A Crisis Of Judgement.

    I am going through a crisis of judgement and as such I am hesitant to do anything that could change the status quo, for fear of making the wrong decision. I find myself standing at a major junction in my life. Before me lie many possible paths to take, but none allow for a return...

    It's been told that women are the prettiest

    things to ever walk the earth. They're fascinating, they're beauty is alluring, they smell good, they are observed a lot. But if you were to ask me how I feel about being one, I'd say it feels like I'm out of place.Ever since the beginning of the human race, one gender ruled the...

    I feel as if everyone spends their whole life trying to find out who they truly are. Learn something new everyday and those are the things that help shape us, help us live. I would say that now I feel I'm trying to find myself more than ever, but I'm sure another time will come...

    I Want

    I want to be good enough, I want to be first choice, I want to be the object of everyone's desires. I need to start by loving myself.

    I am trying to find me,

    but I don't know where to look for myself. I have tried looking in places high and low, but yet I still can't find myself. Where is it that I am hiding? Why can't I let the real me be seen? If I ever do find me where will it be that I go? And if I don't find me? I just don't...

    And for some reason, I think it's working.

    Lately I've been feeling better, like I know myself better. Especially after going to the concert on Sunday, it reminded me of all the things I love to do and how much I love Craig Mabbitt :)

    I Am

    I have been for awhile now, I feel like I've been lost for sometime now. It can get overwhelming at times not knowing who I am. It's an empty feeling...for me anyway.

    I'm Messed Up.

    I have terrible thoughts. Sometimes I wish I was being abused, or raped, so people would feel sympathy for me. I'm a sicko for thinking something so terrible, and I know this. I also wish people around me were smart enough to see me for me. Because I can't. I don't know who...
