    It's so sad and sickening

    that we only get 1 life and almost everything of what the quality of that life will be comes from how we are born. I don't understand why i wasn't born as disabled, down syndrome, deformed, infertile or otherwise horribly non-privileged person and some people are, that thought...

    I Feel Guilty For Existing

    I have a habit. A habit of apologizing over everything. I'm not the kind of guy who can say "**** it, **** the world, **** humanity" and live life without caring what other people think of me. I believe it's impossible to not care what others think of you because at the heart of...
