    Words are completely meaningless

    if a person does not mean them by showing it through their actions. Saying it is one thing, but actually meaning it, and proving that you mean it through your actions and behavior, is another thing. Especially when it comes to friendship, relationship, marriage... The words...

    Life is too short to wake up with regrets.

    Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If it changes your life, let it. No one promised life would be easy, but it will be worth it.

    Sometimes you hold back from talking to someone.

    ..not because if your pride or because you fear rejection, but because you know deep down that if they wanted to be in your life, they would've made the ******* effort.

    Hence why I made http://live-another-day.

    boards.net/ to help people through. Sure, we can sit all day and say "I want to help those who are struggling". But talking won't help if we don't act. Join us and share your experiences with suicide, depression, anxiety and so much more. Be the inspiration!

    Maybe I'm old school

    and don't mean to come off as judge mental, but whatever happen to things like commitment, honor and respect for the one you're with? Since when did things like cheating, affairs, one night stands and being with multiple people become such a hobbie or hot trend?

    Even online! I've talked to a lot of people

    online over the years and heard so many times how it isn't possible to show someone how you feel if you aren't physically there with them. Oh yes you can! Send an email; send a text; write a poem; copy and paste a poem!; send some music that makes you think of them; leave a...

    Before you speak to me about your religion,

    first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, Show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm...

    When I was younger, I used to have a best friend

    I'm tired of feeling like I give to everyone

    and do things for everyone, filling everyone's needs and wants, and when I ask for something, my needs aren't met. It's not even that I am asking for any wants to be filled. Just a need. Like a 2 minute back rub when I feel like I might die, when I give back rubs daily and...

    Sometimes the most powerful thing you can say.

    . Is nothing at all. Dignified silence sends a message clearer then meaningless words. Silence is beautiful when someone expects you to be enraged. Keep your power.. Keep silent.

    who says all the right things, falling on their sword, and then acts completely differently. Actions do speak louder than words. My husband keeps asking if I think he's crazy. I keep telling him "crazy" is not a clinical term.... But I told him last night that I do think he...

    I recently noticed through time

    I dislike someone who promise me to do a favor

    but never work on it. Words become nothing without action. I would be disappointed if I could not made my promise. But sometimes people choose to be a temporary people pleasure by giving a nice words. I do like a prove so I believe action speak louder than words.
