    The Brutal Truth

    I'm a brutally honest girl so here's my motto: "Life freakin' sucks". It's true, the majority of us don't go "tra-la-la"-ing through life. It may seem harsh but too bad, it's more meant to say "don't get your hopes up".

    We are all weak one way

    or another but we pretend to be strong by hiding our weakness. Show your weakness to those who deserve to see it.

    Motto Time!

    Mine is "Sh*t happens, and you get over it." I know it's not pretty - actually it's fairly crude, but considering what I've had happen in my life? It works.
