    I have compassion for those with mental illness.

    Hopefully, They'll Be Gone Soon

    These two girls in my class used to be my friends. We had a HUGE falling out last year over something petty and stupid. Now, every time they see me, they always have to make an unnecisary comment about the way I look or something. Me and my friends try to be the better people...

    Easier To Be Alone Than To Deal With This Negativity

    People Can Only Do You Allow

    I understand that negativity is a downer and that comes from people who are in pain in their own life. They always seek out others that are in some kind of pain and drag them into their life. It goes with that old sayin "Misery Loves Company". For some reason, it makes them...

    Like this colleague of mine with whom I share an office. She's the type that thinks that the glass is half empty. She "knows" that all her attempts at anything will fail, or that people want to steal her stuff, etc. She always complains about everything. And will definitely make...
