    I spent my student years living with my brother

    and sister in an apartment room in Yokohama. Japanese apartment rooms are not as roomy as those in USA for sure. Rooms are tightly aligned. The residents above our room were an old couple without children. Apparently, the old woman was very nervous with noise, and was developing...

    She has medication "to cure" her ADHD and Bipolar, but she took to much, drank too much, and started bleeding from her gut. Just when I thought it coudn't get worse. Today she picked up my sister from school so she could get a ride straight to the next town over for my mom's...

    I hate the fact that my daughter will grow up

    without a father because he became so violent. People look down on me because I'm a single mother as though this is the path in life I wanted to take. I wanted nothing more than us to be together, have more children and raise them in a happy home but how could I have possibly...

    I have always hated conflict.

    ..when I was young..it used to make me feel physically ill. Even now...when I think that there may be issues with someone...my stomach gets all tied up in knots. I have learned not to run from conflict, but it's still really hard for me to stand up for myself.. Even watching...

    It sucks how when someone hurts me

    or does something wrong to me, I just forgive and forgive them over and over. But then when I do something wrong, they don't anything to do with me.

    So my friend was petting a neighborhood cat

    and I said hurry up and picked up a snowball and threw it at my friend but it almost hit the cat. And with my luck the cats owner was watching and yelled at me and now I'm really upset what do I do?

    I'd do almost anything to avoid it,

    and consequently don't speak my mind sometimes when I want to. I especially hate conflict with guys because when they get angry I am really afraid they'll hurt me.

    I just hate the fact

    that the country is divided over police and racism. I love policemen, teachers and pastors. I just don't know why. I feel bad that some of the policemen are not doing the right thing and I hate the way the protesters are all over in their faces and their lives are in danger...

    I can't deal with conflict.

    I agree with people to avoid conflict even when I don't agree. I go out of my way to please a person just to avoid a conflict. I experienced enough conflict as a child.

    Some people get into disputes with other

    Not All Conflict

    Ok, I've been thinking about this group ever since I joined it. I really don't like conflict; it's uncomfortable. But I can't say that I actually HATE it. Conflict is neccessary. As people are all different, with different views, beliefs and feelings, we are not all going to see...

    Imagine waking up in the middle of a conflict.

    Try to fathom what it must be like to always be watching your back, to always struggle for food, to live in a world that perceives you as an underling. What does it feel like to know that what you believe in only matters to you? Would you be able to grow? How would you find the...

    Brutalities or wickedness of some individuals

    are beyond words. But I think people need to be very careful not to overgeneralize the whole group based on the small number of people or whatever sensational stories the media brings. People should try not to sow seeds of hatred and contempt in their hearts because I think that...

    Its Not About Who Is Right, Its About...

    It's not about who is right, it's about trying to unerstand each others intentions and perceptions. Most of the time the REAL reason why people argue, is because they have a different point of view. That sucks, but it's a human thing to have your own point of views. Try to...

    because she was behind, and today she's decided that she can't finish on time because she's going on vacation. I thought, wow that's irresponsible, but hey at least it's not my problem. Then she talked to my manager and then sent me a mail saying that she's handing off the...

    I don't think freedom speech means you can say

    anything. Words can themselves can be like sharp knives that penetrate people's heart and may even do irreversible harm on their life. I think some events won't happen if people have the least respect for things or persons that other people cherish very much and keep silence.
