    I make mistakes, again

    and again and again. You want me to change, and I agree, I try to change. But it can't be in such a short amount of time. I had hope you would have understand that I need time to change, and I try to do it for you, but now you seem to be gone. And still only for you I'm going to...

    How do you learn to trust people

    after being hurt so many times? I mean seriously people just up and expect up and expect that you should trust them not to leave when you've been hurt so many times when you say there and watched everyone you care about walk out the door and never come back? But then your the...

    Here is a top ten list of the flaws

    that I find to be most apparent in myself: 1. I am stubborn as a mule. My god am I stubborn.. 2. I have no filter. I say whatever I think, although this could be in part because of my personality disorder..? In any case, I must learn to think before I speak. 3. I am SO...

    Thank goodness for this!

    I would never want the pressure of having to be perfect. Also, I have enjoyed going against the grain.

    And I've told her how I felt about her.

    .. Maybe it was a mistake, but I will not pit any terms, conditions, or commitment beyond what there already was. Perhaps, in days to come, we'll have to worry about it, figure it out... But for now, I'll just pass the night away on here arms.

    I think it's funny how people say "Sticks

    and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me". I always find it confusing since what people say to you really does hurt. No matter how much people want to deny it, words hurt. I'm just a 13 year old girl. Already I have grown up more than most teens. I think love...

    and how I'm reasonably happy right now. I have a husband, a lover, and somebody I'm in love with. Yes, they are 3 separate people, and yes all of it is wrong according to social code. But I'm happy and I'm doing the best I can with the hand life has dealt me. So easy for...

    But who is? Nobody is perfect,

    and that's something this world needs to understand. But we accept the imperfections, and that acceptance makes them very damn close to being perfect.

    I don't want to be perfect,

    I just want to be happy with myself and for myself for once, if that makes me selfish then fine with me, I've been trying to make others happy for years, I deserve something for all I've given up for the happiness of others

    Nope, but at least I can learn more about myself

    and realize that my imperfections give me some kind of character.

    We can never judge the lives of others,

    because each person knows only their own pain and renunciation. It's one thing to feel that you are on the right path, but it's another to think that yours is the only path.

    I sat looking at my husband

    as he spoke in a glazed over, movie slow motion, tonight. I'm not even sure I was listening... The vacuum of the realization that I am done, hit hard. A smile washed over my face as I pictured what could be for my future. Because I have made the decision, the fear is less...

    We met up (w/no1 knowing) and have been texting/calling. We live to far away for anything to happen. We both care for each other so much. I really want to see him again. I have cheated on my H before and we divorced the first time. Then remarried years later. Sometimes I wonder...

    ways. I have huge communication problems sometimes. I am a person that other people have a hard time getting to know. I am a loner and will always be this way. I am content to sit back and just watch the wheels go, I really am. To all the people who just want to sit back and...

    perfection is nothing

    but a silly concept that can never become reality in a world of so much diversity of thought and preference. I'm perfectly imperfect and I own it!

    Me? I own up to my imperfections.

    They are a part of what makes me... me! But somehow, the society I've been born into is still filled with blind ignorance. And, I hate it because it just seems like that's the way it's always been. All of the racism, sexism, and general intolerance just gets on my nerves. I...

    Took me a long time to be okay with all of my

    imperfections. But I think having someone love me how I am, damaged and all, has made realize some of my self worth. Something I've never been abke to do before. Maybe one day I will be able to see myself the way he does.
