    I Wonder!

    I wonder if he's telling the truth? I wonder if it's all in my mind? I wonder if he thinks of me? I wonder why he doesn't know I think of him? I wonder what would happen if I told him? I wonder why our life revolves around love? I wonder what would be if he knew the real me...

    Remember God

    Have you ever felt something so pressing on your Heart; That you just couldn't keep it in any longer? That you want to share with someone just to be relieved of this burden you carry around with you? You want it to be OUT and gone; maybe you want to feel less guilty. Maybe you...

    Untrust The Trust

    The very moment you let go and began to relax is the moment everything in your life bares all. Trust is a feeling of security, and anything breaking that spins your life and esteem into something not only unimaginable, but causes feelings of anxiety, fear which ultimately leads...

    Society & Such

    Soon after changing my appearance to suit what I like (aka cutting my hair short and dying it red), I realized how ****** up society is. Back when I had long, blonde hair, a bunch of people called me pretty. Random strangers would walk up to me and say they liked my hair, etc. A...

    I learned the hard way in losing trust in my

    After what I've been through with relationships,

    It's hard to trust anymore. When I try to start one I doubt them and I think anything they're saying is a lie. Not calling all gals liars. I'm just super paranoid now and I don't know how to get rid of it. ><

    It's not people I don't trust,

    it's relationships and friendships. The people themselves are usually fine, it's easy to find people you can trust once you know what lies look like before you see them. And people that are willing to support you tend to start from the start. But I find that when ever I get...

    than I bargained for. I joined a community I thought would be my salvation, instead when I had an emotional breakdown many people I thought would be at my side turned on me. So I cut a lot of people out of my life.
