    How Can I Be So Stupid?!

    Back when I thought I knew everything and didn't care about all of it. I used to let people take advantage of my body. I don't even care if we just met or if they've been a long friend of mine but for all I care is that I don't. I don't even want a serious relationship before...

    I have done A LOT of things i'm not proud of,

    but the thing i regret most was being blinded by love. I loved someone too much that I would do anything for her, ANYTHING. Now that I look back I can't believe how taken advantage of I was.

    I am a breathing contradiction of myself all

    the time, a confused bundle of emotions laced with false demands and imaginary lines in the sand. Becoming myself is painful, but beautiful. I've let bad people steal my life, but I am no longer sleeping with the enemy.

    Who Hasn'T?

    In my younger days, I was even stupider than I am now. I loved the thrill of danger. I did a few more drugs than I probably should have. The same applies to women. It made me who I am today. Without that life, I wouldn't have my kids, though. God truly can use evil to show his...
