    Several days ago, I almost quit EP thinking

    that it has done me more harm than good.. So I took a break and reflected over what has happened the past days. Now, I'm back because I realized that it is ok to feel what I'm feeling. This is all normal and I just have to learn how to control and manage it. It's okay. It's...

    Watching ..........

    What kind of person sits and watches another human being go through the pain of worry and fear? When all along the pain could have been avoided. In my opinion it takes the lowest form on life to do this. A weak individual who cannot be honest with anyone, not even themselves. I...

    I tend to naturally come-on to people around me

    and don't realize it. In my defense, listening to someone is the easiest way to get their attention.

    Do you ever paint a picture of yourself,

    your life, that isn't as accurate as you wish it were? Sometimes I applaud myself - my intentions and my ideals. I want to be the person I imagine I am. Restlessly, Scout

    I love movies, art, animals :) I look pretty

    when I feel good about doing what I like. I don't always look cute. I am over weight. I do over spend. I am lazy when not at work. Someone told me I'm a free spirit, I love it!

    I am very emotional women,

    but I can control my emotions most of the time, I don't like to think, talk too much& I prefer to be realistic& positive, help people but not everyone deserves help. I experienced many times people don't appreciate help enough which is sad.

    and then do NOTHING to change it. We all have choices. We all have consequences to our actions or inactions.(is that a word?) if you want something to BE different YOU have to BE different. You can't do the same thing you've always done and expect different results. Yes I...

    God loves all of us,

    and to prove that we love God , we have to show that in our behaviours, in every second of our heart beats we should keep in mind that we live because of God. Why our love towards God isn't proved enough ?

    People please enjoy life!

    !! Doesn't last long, if you have a place where you can eat &clean , God gave you that to enjoy it, this is a big gift from God if you have a safe place to live , God wants you to prove people that you believe that your life has meaning , even if others can't see that.

    I am too tired to even do anything.

    I am emotionally / physically / mentally exhausted. Pretty soon I'll quit my job at 7-11. I know I'm not appreciated there so I want out. But I'm hopeful for another job then I'll leave.
