    Falling Up For Myself

    I've always been the passive sort, the guy who just lets things roll off his back, who doesn't like confrontation and is far too understanding at times when I should be more assertive. I rarely get angry and usually just go with the flow of things though more often than not it...

    Cry Of A Psychologist

    Some time ago I read one story, which was about psychologists and psychiatrists. It was said, that they pretend, that they know everything, but know nothing in fact; that they rape souls and try to kill the individuality in everyone  and to make them the part of crowd. The...

    No Such Thing As Too Much Pride!

     I have always stood up for what I believe in, no matter what it is! It use to aggravate my mom so much. She would say that I was way too prideful, and that I needed to humble myself to others beliefs. She also told me to either hide or lie about the things I believed...

    Hold Strong!

    You can't truely be your own person if you don't believe in something. I don't like people to step all over me and I don't allow it to happen to my loved ones (friends, family, or animals). I fight for what I believe in and respect people who do the same.

    Never Give In

     I wont give in and I will go down swinging. It's a bit excessive and it gets me in trouble sometimes. Hey, it all goes along with standing up for your thoughts.

    Too Right I Do

    There are too many people in this world who just roll over and allow things to happen. Too many people who refuse to fight because 'it's too hard' or 'there's no point' or 'I don't want to offend anyone'. These people have to exist- yes they do, but so do we. We the people who...

    I Will

    stand up for what I believe is right, no matter what the personal costs. And believe me, in some instances, it has cost me dearly. Would I make the same decisions again, or do the same things again, if I had the chance? Absolutely.

    Fight Without Fists

    I am not afraid to share my beliefs and be myself. I won't impose my beliefs on anyone but at the same time I won't let you impose yours on me. I like the fact that people are different with different beliefs and ways of thinking. I just wish we were all more civil about it.
