    1 of the things that I want to change about

    myself is to mind my own business. I realized how bad it is to involve myself to very bad situations. Like my best friend for instance, that keeps dragging me to his pathetic attempt to get everybody's attention. With me along the way, I get smacked in the middle everytime he...

    I wish I weren't so anxious

    and so un-accepting of myself. I wish I could tell my family the truth of my life without fear that they will judge me and cut me off. You love who you love. I wish I could walk in freedom and just enjoy my life without a shadow hanging over me.
