    The person who used to be my friend is coming

    to town, and wants to meet. She was the one who affected my self-esteem so bad in my first year at college. I'm not mad at her, I just don't know if I should go?

    The Biggest Lie I Continuously Tell Myself

    On most days, I know perfectly well what I need to do.  Sometimes, I wish very much that I did not know.  In a way, I long for the time when I did not know, and it did not matter if I knew or not, because someone would always be there to help bail me out if things went...
