    It's True everyone comes in life

    for some reason....but when you trust someone and hand over your entire life book in his hand and he hurts you how would you ever have faith in kindness, in trust, in people.

    We're NOT a rich family, so it's not like I could go and buy a new one whenever I want one. Getting a new phone would cost around $500 because of our plan. It's not going to happen for another nine months. Whoever stole my phone doesn't understand how much it means to me...

    Not all people. This just annoys me.

    The Wall Street Journal publishes a story on how a degree helps relationships. I'm sorry, but no. That's bullshit that thousands of people now agree with. Can't even read the news without hearing some completely ridiculous and purposely influential.

    and all boys use those girls for sexual pleasure as those girls give everything for acceptance and "love". I hate you people, all of you. I do not belong in here. Are there any other boysgirls who share the same opinion?
