    A Letter I May Never Send, But A Conversation That May Happen In The Future...

    I'm the eldest of three,

    and I've always felt like I was beneath my family and that I always disappoint my family. I dropped out of college, I became open about being atheist, I smoke and drink and I have gauges. I'm everything my parents hoped I wouldn't become and they don't let me forget it. Both my...

    Why Bother?

    Not a single day passes where I don't let myself or someone else down. There are times when I put my all into something and I still can't please those around me or myself. There are days when I just feel like giving up, I mean, why bother trying when you seem doomed to fail? I...
