    Double Motives

    That's my biggest one. I gravitate towards people, but at the same time, I'm a loner. So I come out of my shell for selfish and selfless reasons, usually at the same time. I can be VERY manipulative. But lately, it's all been kept in check. Actually, since I felt love, it...

    I wish I could let go of what I've done in the

    past, but I can't. It's like I was chained up for a long time, and finally had the chains unlocked, but now I'm holding on to my chains. I've struggled with addictions and depression in the past and I have a really hard time sharing that with people in real life.

    READ This All

    THERE IS NO GUILT IN NATURE. NO ANIMAL FEELS THAT. We make a mistake, get some consequences and we get a lesson. That's all. We shouldnt feel any guilt for that anymore just remember the lesson and not to repeat the same mistake again.

    Guilt is kind of a useless emotion when you think about it.  I mean, why do we feel guilty in the first place?  Because we're empathetic.  We did something that wronged someone and we feel bad about it.  But there's no changing it once it was done.  And...
