    You either die a hero

    or live long enough to see yourself become the villain

    I will stand up for and protect the ones I care

    about. I won't back down from whatever challenge or problem arises, and I won't give in to the pressure. I am battle born, and ready to die in the line of duty if need be.

    A creed to live by...

    in the midst of horrible anxiety and panic, an hourly- wage worker, assisting at a facility where I was seeking treatment, came to me. I was shaking so badly that I couldn't imagine surviving from one moment to the next. She pulled up a chair, took my hands in hers, and said...

    Yeah this is a recent thing

    but if I start to experience anxiety in social situations, I just think "Don't worry, we'll all be dead soon and this won't matter" because it's true really.

    The more perspective we have,

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

    Be friends with people

    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

    After the accident, my mother went nuts.
