    Sitting in the lab, I suddenly realized everything I wanted out of life was there.  Knowledge, friendship, discovery, shared experiences, a unified definition of situation where everyone could take and give in a manner that benefits the whole.  I then realized that I...

    Sometimes, leaving them alone would be the best

    decision you'll ever have. Take your time to be the best person you'll ever be. If you think that you're not satified of who you are right now? Then better stand up and find yourself.

    The downside of being with needy people is

    that their needs are insatiable and they will use you every chance they get. And the moment you turn your back even for few seconds,you'll be easily replaced with someone else.
