    Trying...

    I am trying to be a better person. I am trying to be someone that people actually want to be around, but I am not living up to it....I want to be a better person, btu I am just not. Maybe I am meant to be a bad person, someone who is meant to be alone, and meant to have people...

    And I think I found the key

    when you remove yourself from the equation and look at life from a different perspective **** isn't so bad just be happy that fake smile might become a real one??

    By This I Mean...

    I mean that I am trying to be a better person through learning and teaching. I am trying not to hate or hold grudges as they will do nothing for my future.

    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.

    Merely results in knowing

    who have good attitudes and who are simply flawed. Apply this with current friends who are respectful, life ahead will just get better abd better for you :)

    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.

    I'm still working on cultivating healthy

    relationships. It is a totally different way to look at... and accept other people. It's so cool because your patience grows without you realizing it ...... And you wind up accepting yourself at some point.

    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...

    See, I used to be the type of guy

    that does hard drugs, like shooting heroin, snorting cocaine and all that other ****. I done all of it just to fit in with the others, and the more I started to do it there were more chances of my life ending really soon. So now I don't do drugs as much as I used to; the only...

    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
