    I tried to die once but I kept going

    because I found someone who was just like me. She told me everything and how she stands to fight for 1,000 of people a day for staying alive and I do the same.

    Him..

    I honestly thought for years that I had no purpose. No reason to live. That I was just wondering aimlessly through the years. For no good at all. A couple months ago, I realized the wrongness of that. A couple months ago, I met him. Him. Such a beautiful soul...

    I know I do. It's the drive of my soul.

    And I have multiple. And when I figure one out, I get a sense of peace. I enjoy the little bit of lazy day sunshine. I turn the music on and enjoy a glass of wine. I celebrate the feeling of rightness. But what else? So close I can almost see it. But is it real or an illusion...

    I feel like the world is trying to tell me something. I have an overwhelming feeling of purpose, but I can't find what it is. There's a weight on my heart that cannot be lifted until I figure out what I'm meant to do. I can't seem to find the answers that I'm searching for. I...

    My Purpose Is....

    To live my life, to be happy and die. To fade out of existence as soon as possible. That is my purpose.

    to love. to laugh. to spread peace

    and joy. to make you laugh. to share. to learn. to dance. to paint. to help my fellow man, every chance I get. to smile.... to tell all of you that the secret of life is not really a secret. energy reflects itself. what you put out is what you get back. simple metaphysics.

    Growing up I was always "Different" I never ever fit in with the general public ever, I always had this certain type of personality that made me stand out no matter where I went. I've had people tell me in the past that I am different, that I'm an individual, I don't let any of...
