    I want to for the last time just write this all

    about before I put it all behind me. Yes I felt alone as a child, my sisters were always better than me, my parents had little time for me and I didn't have many friends because I was terrible shy. It was a little bit later in life that I started to get really close with my...

    If I were about to kill myself,

    I've been feeling great.

    I found my self worth. Powerful thing. But I also don't let it destroy my compassion. The only thing stopping you, is yourself.
