    I'm not the most amazing person,

    I have my moments, I'm not an angel, but that doesn't mean I won't become one, we learn from our mistakes and I have, and I will make sure not to re make them, every saint has a past, every sinner has a future

    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.

    A Recent Conversation I Had With Myself

        I wish we could forgive each other.    You're better off without me, and I know it.    I'm so sorry it had to be this way :(   I thought I forgave you, but then I realized I am angry with how you haven't forgiven me.  Which...

    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 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.
