    I still am a very emotional person

    but through all I've been dealing with in my life I learn to just accept things the way they are because something's just can't be changed. I also am starting to pull myself from situations where I know I could say hurtful things even though someone might say things to hurt me...

    a lot of people will tell you

    that it's impossible to have zero regrets, but that is a. false statement. yeah, in the moment I might regret doing something, but looking back I can honestly say that I do not regret it. I am happy and successful now and if I changed things in my past I wouldn't be here now. I...

    So in July I'm walking down the street in 90

    degree weather which felt more like 190. My head was pounding because I had a banana and a protein shake in the morning but didn't eat all day. I didn't actually heat a meal in the apartment where the power shut off that morning so I was a tad under nourished. Incidentally...

    I learned something very valuable today.

    I am 31 years old, yet I feel like I have lived

    the life of at least 4 women so far in life. I have been through great joys as well as great sorrows. I would not be who I am today if I had not gone through every single one of the days of my life. I am grateful for all the day of my life who it has made me today.

    I feel like if you have to "put someone in
