and I am sure I can repeat them exactly” 348 People

    I Like To Think So

    I have made many mistakes in my life but i do like to think i have learned from them. Don't get me wrong i have made the same mistakes more than once sometimes ... but there has to come a time where you say ''enough is enough i'm not doing that again''. Often people say ''oh don...

    He proved to be.. a waste of time.

    Sometimes I wonder why I love so easily and deeply. I accept people too easily. I guess that's not a bad thing. The bad thing is.. me falling easily. It's not something I can really help though. Is it? I should've avoided him a long time ago.. But no, I continued talking to him...

    I truly believe we have to learn from tough, painful problems, issues and circumstances so we will be able to help people who go through the same ones after us.
