    I Learned

    I was ruled by my heart twice, and each time it turned out to be the worst thing for me. It cost me in more ways then one. But I learned! I am now ruled by my head and heart, and in that order, and now for me life is perfect, and always will be!

    It's Just A Bad Day Not A Bad Life...

    “Maybe you don’t like your job, maybe you didn’t get enough sleep. Well, nobody likes their job, nobody got enough sleep. Maybe you just had the worst day of your life, but you know, there’s no escape and there’s no excuse, so just suck it up and be nice.” Don’t...

    Wish It Was Different Sometimes

    I am always ruled by head. its not always a good thing. It means I over think situations. And so talk myself out of it I guess. =( I wish I could just switch my head off (without the help of alcohol lol) just in some situations, just for a little while so I ...

    Sounds Like Adult Commulity!

    I am sure there aren't a lot of people under 18 who are ruled by their head! I am ruled by ny head, though some of my decisions break my heart, I never let my heart decide.

    I Try

    Although my heart does win sometimes I do try my hardest to let my head make my decisions.  I've made some crappy decisions over the years, and they were all based on emotion, not logic.  As a result through massive therapy, reading and whatnot I've tried to shift that...

    I tune in to the Chinese channel on the radio I

    used to listen to in the car more than a year ago. It has been a while now, this deliberate exercise to listen to the channel I had loved so much in the past. Do you believe your heart is capable of dying and then waking up again? I monitor my mood at the end of these car...

    I Used To Wonder Why Some People Act Hardened On The Outside

    Kiss Love - Must Be Destroyed

    What is this "heart" thing that you speak of?  Most likely, it just means acting out on emotions.  That is what I would have defined it as for most of my existence on this planet.  I have had some major changes going on in the past month.  It is...
