    Well I did it again. I made one of the people

    closest to me angry again because I ditched her again. I was angry at first because she was angry at me and I didn't know why. Then I read through my older post on EP and realized that she probably felt abandoned and now I feel like crap. I didn't ditch her intentionally though...

    I am not the "perfect"

    that I would like to be. I would like to adhere to my beliefs more. I would like to be consistent in my attitude during the day. I would like to not have to struggle with some of the things I struggle with.

    So do not try to hold something against me just

    because I may not be able to do it as well as you or some other person may be able to do it.

    Be the guy or be with a guy whom you would want

    your daughter to be with. I realized I'm not taking my own advice because if my future daughter ever dated guys like my exes, I would no doubt slap the sh*t out of her. But I also realize that the whole experience of life is to make those mistakes and learn from them. Not...

    I Overdosed When I Was 17 Years Old.

    I am not going to say what it was on, but looking back it seems like it happened in a different life. I admit it wasn't easy to quit drugs. It took me slightly over six years and several relapses to get through it. Here is the story of how I reached that point. When I was...

    I hate how in our society you are judged on

    every.little.thing. It's ridiculous that I can't be comfortable in my own skin anymore without being critiqued on every imperfection. I don't understand why we all strive for perfection when it's completely unachievable

    What do you do when you start questioning your

    religion? I've been Christian all of my life and I know in my heart that God does exist but sometimes I just don't understand what kind of God allows the travesty that the world goes through. What kind of God allows a child to be hurt by her own family members. I hate going to...

    How do you see through someone to realize their

    Do you think I'm at a healthy weight?

    Cause I think I'm kinda chubby. Although I don't think skinny is perfect I just think I'm not the girl my friends or neighbors would call a beeautiful or flawless girl. I'm always thought as cute or silly. It just bugs me plenty today.

    PLOT TWIST! A few weeks ago I talked about how

    I'm so tired of my mother not accepting me

    I'M Like A Unicorn In A Church.

    I'm no where near perfect. I love the wrong guys, I cry all the time, I snort when I laugh, I eat way too many pickles, i don't have a filter, I talk in my sleep, and I say really inappropriate things at the worse times. But isn't that the beauty of people? How everyone is flawed...
