    Forever and Ever

    Guess I'll be dying alone... I can only hope my children grow up happy and healthy, with a great relationship and love in their hearts. I do my best to teach them what I cannot have. I want them to be honest and open their hearts. I tell them I love them and give them constant...

    I Must Have Decided ...

    I think "need" is one of the most scary concepts for a lot of people.  It's more frightening than love somehow.  Now, to express love is taboo enough for many, but need ... oh no ... don't show that little flash of vulnerability whatever you do.  ...

    "A Wise Girl Kisses But doesn't Love

    "A wise girl kisses but doesn't love, listens but doesn't believe and leaves before she is left" - Marilyn Monroe. I believe in that. Everyone will just disappoint you in the end. I sound like such a negative person when I say that but it's true. I've learnt that in the...

    There's nothing wrong with self-reliance.

    It's a good thing. But let's not kid ourselves, friends are nice, too. We may not need them but life is better when you can share some laughs together.

    Come to think of it, I'm meant to be alone.

    Having no friends in surprisingly not as bad as I thought it would be. It does get lonely, but the more I get used to it, the less I care, and the less alone I feel. I have time for things I want to do, improve myself to be the best, like in my dream. See, being alone...

    Lone Wolf

    I alone am the only one that can make me happy and safe. I can only be free and with the spirit, by my self. Nobody can be me for me or save me from me. I alone am the answer and the way.
