    The more perspective we have,

    the better the view - both in scenery and in life.

    "Treat others the way you want to be treated"

    it sounds cliche, but in all reality, I live by this vigilantly, I'm always kind and sweet to others, I trust others until they give me a reason not to, I forgive and forget, it's just how you move on in life ^.^

    After the accident, my mother went nuts.

    She did that thing that all crazy women do; abuse. Made me wash my mouth with soap for not saying please and thank you. Beat my knuckles with the pot spoon for not eating broccoli. Called me names, and locked me in my room for days while treating my sister like a princess. But...

    A creed to live by...

    Don't undermine your worth by comparing yourself to others. It is because we are different that each of us is special. Don't set your goals by what other people deem important. Only you know what is best for you. Don't take for granted the things closest to your heart...

    who aren't your age. Hangout with people whose first language isn't the same as yours. Get to know people who doesn't come from your social class. This is how you see the world. This is how you grow
