Are you trying to change your outlook as well? 99 People

    After a While

    I am trying my best to be a good person. I don't think I have been bad or anything but just trying to better myself. I am so sick of having the weight of my husbands family on my shoulders and want to look at it from a different angle just to feel better. I don't know if it can...

    I keep crying. It's truly sucks to know

    that at any point, I could just fall apart and let the feelings ripple out into my surroundings. I guess it's my brain trying to tell me that I can't always hide my feelings and that I need to let go of things. But if that was so easy then why can't any of us do that? The answer...
