    I experienced a past

    that made me into an introverted and insecure girl. My dad did not have good parenting skills, and he would use aggressive and angry behavior towards me ever since I could remember. My mother was nice, but she never stopped him from hurting me and I sometimes I think about that...

    I'm not the most amazing person,

    I'm not perfect. No one is.

    We've all sinned, we've all lied, we've all judged, we've been hypocritical, and we've all hurt someone (intentional or not) in our lives. I've done good things. I've done bad things. I try to be a better person everyday. I hold doors open for people, I say hello to people I...

    my landlord is from the Middle East

    and he can be a pain in the butt sometimes. But I never disrespect him, not only because of him age, but because I think everyone deserves respect so I always say yes sir and no sir when he asked me a question.

    I feel like I'm pathetic.

    I have a huge crush on my Econ teacher and is know I'll never have a chance. he's married, has children, and he's 43. I love him so much but why can't I be normal and like someone my age? *sigh*

    I find it so hard though.

    Sometimes I get so angry or depressed for no apparent reason. I start crying for no reason and I'm mean to people even if I don't want to be. Then when I'm back to my normal self, I feel terrible for what I don't but I have too much pride to apologize for it.

    Today I betrayed someone's trust.

    I took a break from speaking to them for a long time and when we reconnected, I went back to my old ways. I am a good person and I will make better decisions. This person that I have hurt constantly tells me that I will never amount to anything differently but I know better. I...

    I found out today that I haven't progressed

    as far as I thought I had. I did something today that hurt someone. I feel genuinely depressed for the first time in a long time. *sigh* Well, I better go make amends.
