    and I don't pretend to be.

    I make mistakes and I say things that I regret but I have to move forward learn from my past and do a little bit better the next day. I just have to consciously remind myself of this.

    I got to know a guy from EP a few weeks ago.

    We kik-ed each other almost daily and I must say that I was pretty attracted to him. He is not only super good-looking but he is also very knowledgable on almost everything. And a few days ago, he stopped kik-ing. I feel sorry for him; I am amazed, disgusted at his heartless...

    when nobody is perfect. I feel like people should be more understanding before they make judgements about strangers. Everyone has their own journey in life you shouldn't judge them for their experience & decisions. 😣
