    sometimes - but not usually.  give them what they want and they will always come back.  But then am I really being myself?  I believe there has to be a balance of giving and taking to really get along peacefully in the world.

    I Try To Give People What They Want

    Well, At Least I Try to

      It's rare for me to actually succeed. But I never show the pain from failing yet again. No, must never show pain. That lesson I learned well. So in a way I give people in my life exactly what they want..... No reasons to ever worry about me. I keep all pain inside, &...

    At the moment I always think I know what I want and then I am there and I have it and I realize I want more. So technically I always know what I want until I need more.
