    I have two younger sisters: a twin

    and a-year-younger sister. A was taller than me, while B and me were the same height. (It really sucked because I was the oldest.) But when my a-year-younger sister was a freshman, she suddenly grew many inches taller than me and my twin and is still growing right now. (Luckily...

    Can't Stand It.....

    I feel ashamed when I think of how much I care when other people are in emotional pain. There is a guy at work I hardly know and his girlfriend died of cancer the other week. I literally cannot stop thinking about it and am really worried about him and everyone concerned, but...

    Yes I Do...

    Especailly when its people I Love and care about. When I hear that they are in pain. I cringe, I would do anything to take their pain away, even if it meant to take the pain upon on myself. I would do it, because I just hate when people I Love hurt!

    Maybe I'm Too Emphatic

    It's difficult for me to stand hard situations of a person by me.. i feel sad if he's sad.. i feel in trouble as too! I can't stay out of him, and think about myself.

    Today, I was driving to the mall with my mom.

    We were going to catch the early show of The Man from UNCLE as we both had some stuff to do later in the day and I didn't want to watch it alone. I stopped on red light, and I saw this beggar. He was passing cars, knocking on windows, asking for money. Usually, I feel like these...

    Actually in tears because of it right now.

    I am not God, and I am no angel, but the sight of one who I love so much in the struggles they deal with daily hurt my heart. It's like when I pray, all I can do is cry.
