    There are some people

    that we have to keep distance, it's not because you hate them or you don't like them. It's because we know it's the best thing to do.

    Last July I started to break up with this guy,

    and in his twisted mind he thought raping me would bring me back. I got through it and months later I thought I could completely block him from my life and move on. By fall I thought I could start dating again, and did. Sweetest guy in the world, and besides a few small quirks...

    Out of my head out of my brain.

    I don't want your negative thoughts to poison me. You were just a pawn in this game of life. You failed to maneuver through the board. You didn't want to fight the knights that guarded victory.so you clinged on to another full of deceit. And you brought me along, when I wanted a...

    Looking Forward

    I can't change my past. I've done what I've done and that's it. Everything I have chosen to do in my past has made me the amazing person I am now. Yes, I am amazing. I am strong, I am funny, I am smart. There was a time I didn't realize that but thanks to my past now I do. I...

    I have loved in life

    and I have been loved. I have drunk the bowl of poison from the hands of love as nectar, and have been raised above life's joy and sorrow. My heart, aflame in love, set afire every heart that came in touch with it. My heart has been rent and joined again; My heart has been...

    Its common sense. Even if/when time travel

    existed, you either wouldnt be able to change the past at all or you wouldnt be able to without the present being altered as well.

    How can you change something

    that isn't defined yet, such as future? Every action, even thought can change your whole life. As long as you make decisions, your future is as blank as it could ever be. I would rather name this topic 'I cant change the past, but I'm stil in control of my future.

    I have no such regrets of my past.

    They made me who I am today, but I do regret some of the decisions I made in my past. Missed opportunities. Could have had the love of my life today if only I had not behaved like a ****. Could have focused on a lot of things, but it's okay. I believe it was meant to happen...

    My parents are drug addicts.

    I spent my life watching meth destroy peoples lives. And mine. But I strive to be like my sister. She's currently in college with two jobs and still finds time to help my brother and I. I can't wait until I'm out if here and choosing my own path.

    I do not want to be defined by my past

    so I am very careful what information I share with others. Everyday I try to make a positive impact on others and remain optimistic, that is how I want to be viewed.
