    I sure do...and sure dont like people

    who keep whining and do nothing..but cry foul...get your sorry ***** and change things..and not blame the world for it...rather than pity one should beg for the strength to change things and accept blowbacks..theirs only one thing permanent in life change!!

    "Fvck My Life, Nobody Listens To Me"

    There's so much more to do than to always look at ourselves as victims and the rest of humanity, villains. The world doesn't owe us a good life, we owe the world compassion and care. We all have our issues, let's deal with them like grown ups.

    Its one of the worst things you could inflict

    onto yourself. Seriously. EVERYONE has problems, whether they're spoken, seen, heard, hidden, shouted, written, drawn, or locked away. Many people are even great on putting on a facade, making it easy to believe you're "the only one" and "no one could possibly understand." It's...

    Don't start our conversation by saying stuff

    Self Pity

    Self-pity is our worst enemy and if we yield to it, we can never do anything wise in this world.

    Be strong people of the world.

    For you are made conquerers. From the ashes of defeat burn the flame of victory. I believe in your ability to believe in yourself. I will not tolerate naysayers. Be strong.

    My ex husband is going through rehab and called me to be his "support system"...I'm the only person he knows who doesn't drink.Well, I don't hate him, I do support him.  Our divorce was based solely on his "choice" to be a drunk, rather than be a decent husband.  He's not a...

    I hate in others and in myself,

    especially myself. I hate that I'm jealous of the kid who filled my spot in my absence in the team. Hate the look that the coach gave him that I worked so hard to get before and that they need me even less now. That he won his first match when I lost three in a row on my first...
