    I have always tried to think the best of everyone and everything. However, when I do think positive, it seems nothing ever turns out, so tell me, why even bother? I feel like I might as well be smashing my head against a wall, in expecting anything to turn out a good way. If...

    Take A Sad Song and Make It Better

    Well, I'm not going to lie... A lot of the choices I have made in my life have not exactly been the best; they've cost me things like my dignity, my pride, my sense of self worth & unfortunately, have altered the very way I see myself when I look into the mirror every morning...
