    I seriously don't know what I want from life.

    I'm happy, but I'm not sure this is for me. I really don't know where I will be in say, 10 years?? Will I still be in the same situation? Only time will tell I suppose

    Morality

    Morality is not just an obligation equal in importance to the cult or religious obligations of Israel, but that morality is perhaps superior to the cult. The crimes that are denounced as being utterly unacceptable to Yahweh, infuriating Yahweh to the point of destruction of the...

    This guy i know is beautiful.

    Not a lot people think so but I do . He sat next to me and we talked but I wanted to leave because I couldn't bear it. Yet when I left i regretted not making an effort. I think he is attractive but surely we would of hit it of by now? I've spoken to him ( long convos ) twice

    It's funny how you think you want something

    really bad but when you get it... Whether it's new shoes, a car, drawing material or anything in general... Including a girlfriend that was a crush years ago.. But when you get it you don't actually want it. You were so worked up toward it that you never stopped to think what do...

    A few weeks ago, this person

    who I just met had an impact on me.. We don't talk anymore, but he brought up that I don't know what I want, and it did in fact bring me to the reality I was so desperately trying to detach from. Do I really know what I want? The answer to that, no. I don't. I don't know what I...
