I Am Flawed But I Am Working On It

A collection of mistakes, reflections, attempts to be better, epiphanies about life and mortality. 128 People

    I have screwed up so much over time

    and even recently, I still screw things up just for the sake of me being me. I don't actually try to sabotage my life and turn others upside-down; I just do it with the best of intentions and my own stupidity. I'm trying to do better, I try not to cause the hurt and confusion...

    I'm beginning this as a collection of screw ups, attempts to be better, epiphanies about life and mortality. Which is a pretty fundamental part of every self aware & constructive person's life. I'll start this with something I've been thinking about lately. I'm 20 now, but when I...

    Left or Right There comes a time in your life

    when you need to step up. There are those times when you have only two paths to take. You go left or you go right. The straight has ended and you are at a T junction now and you have to make a choice. I've been sitting at this junction for a while now. Contemplating whether to...

    This is a reflection on the year.

    I wrote this at the start of this year and now that it's almost over, it seems as if it's a good time to reflect upon it 03/01/2013 2013. A New Year. There are no New Year resolutions. What’s the point. Why bother, when if you wanted to do something, you’d have done it...

    I agree with this from the POV of bringing out

    the best in you, but like it or not, we're always going to be flawed. There's no such thing as "flawless" or "perfect", that's what life's all about; it's beautifully flawed. If we keep shooting for those kinds of concepts, we're never going to be satisfied with anything.

    Knowing 22/02/2013 There are those times

    when you have to admit to yourself and others that you are wrong. This week, is one of those weeks. I’m not wrong about what I said. The way I went about it was wrong. I’m aware of that. I never said I was perfect. Never even hinted. I’m damaged. Severely. Those who are...

    My Relationship Rant

    Sometimes I want my fiance to do stupid little things that mean a lot to me. This year, I decorated a jar super cute and filled a bowl with rainbow notepads. The idea is to fill it with funny or interesting things that happen to use throughout the year, and then read them next...
