    The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein.

    I heard it was about a tree and a boy. The tree was generous. Very generous, in fact, it may have been too generous. Perhaps a better word for the tree would be altruistic? Being altruistic is giving too much of yourself to someone else and not leaving...

    Cathartic And Fulfilling

    I've always reflected, always thought about things, analyzed and over analyzed but I never really got in to the habit of keeping a diary; of writing my thoughts down in any order; and yet I find myself posting prolifically on here - maybe its because the topics give me a chance...

    Death doesn't fill my fantasize thoughts,

    only happiness. My thoughts freeze me in them and I seem to be daydreaming. The lack of awareness, of reality surrounds me. I was stuck in my mind for about thirty minutes, but it only felt like a minute. Can I stay there longer. No!!! I have class.

    Inspired by a question asked by RedDog123321:

    I don't 100% agree with the phrase, "We accept the love we think we deserve." I would say "we accept the love we think we are benefitting from." Even in abusive relationships, the victim feels like they are gaining something. Whether the abuser is a financial relief, or the...

    So, I've been doing some thinking,

    with all this free time I've had since I quit my job. Really looking inside myself, and noticing I make a lot of mistakes; when I was on my way home from picking up a book on ADD, I almost got into a wreck staring out the window, to getting home and finding my scissors were...

    Today I thought of something,

    as my family spent the day together. We were walking back to our car through a less than stellar part of town, it was already dark, and yet I wasn't really nervous at all. My husband would take care of us, obviously. I could tell he was tense though, and I had this thought: it...

    Someone on here sparked a thought

    for me. She asked if it was shallow to find people who can't take care of themselves unattractive. And it got me thinking. Why is being shallow a bad thing if you aren't harassing or hurting anyone? Why is shallow only a bad thing when you hurt someone's feelings by simply not...

    Reality is indifferent to our fears,

    our joys, our absences. Indifference in reality is the alcohol in the liquor. We get drunk in reality like we get drunk in cheap liquor, sometimes this drunkness leading us to a soothing slumber, sometimes to bitter tears of frustration.
