    I Hate What I Love

    I love myself, but hate my intensity sometimes. Especially my ability to love without expectation. On the occasion that I do "fall in love", I am rejected. My intelligence is awesome, but my intellect is not. I am too "full-on". I am a professional groupie...

    This Fits Me

    This fit me - this is exactly how I feel. I am a strong, confident and self-assured woman.  I see what I want, I go for it.  Nothing stands in my way, no challenge is to great. On the other hand - I am a weak child, playing on the safe side of...

    Reality At Its Finest

    The "Love-hate relationship" with myself is probably like any other teenagers'. I have a wonderful family with married parents and an older brother always by my side. It's hard to be thankful for all the good things in my life. Why? Good question. I am your typical teenage girl...

    I Get to Decide

    I could almost call my Love-Hate Relationship with myself a split personality.  I have good days and I have bad days.  But that's not what I'm talking about.  It's like I have Love on one shoulder and Hate on the other.  I get to choose who I want to listen...
