I Am Not Perfect

    Yeah I can get pretty judgmental.

    To live without ever judging is sort of foolish, no? As long as you have principles, you should be able to judge when there are things that go against it. It's when you close your mind against different opinions that turns being judgmental into being discriminatory.

    I'm so tired of my mother not accepting me

    for who I am and who I've become. I gain a little weight, she tells me to lose it, or "are your pants getting tight?". I'm tired of her judging how I live my life. I DO NOT DRINK. I have chosen that path and I do not see any problem with it. This world, or should I say country...

    I have a hard time expressing how I actually

    feel. When an issue presents itself I tend to make it far worse than it is. Sometimes I just want the other person to tell me they care or understand. I just end up pushing them all away to the point I need to let them go. I am here to express this about myself and to help...

    this is inevitable. Nobody can go through life without saying they have screwed up in one way or another. If anyone tries telling you they haven't let someone down or themselves down at least once, they're lying. Life isn't about being perfect, it's about what you do after you...
