    My Mother Stayed In Her Marriage Because...

    ... above all her kids were what mattered. I can only speculate that she might have stayed because she didn't think she could survive without my dad, yet she was the one who made sure the bills were paid. My mother came from a 'broken' family and was determined that her children...

    Well... A Couple Days Ago

    So I'm driving, flipping through radio stations, and one song caught my attention. It was a song I hadn't heard in years, but.... at that exact moment in time, I happen to catch a song that spoke to me, from words sang so long ago. Sit yourself down, girl, and talk to me Tell...

    Happy. That is how I feel today.

    For me, that's a huge development in my life. I used to look at the people around me, hearing them complain about the most trivial of problems, and it never made sense to me. What's so tragic about not getting the car of your dreams as a friggin high school student? All you...

    I read a question somewhere,

    on what a person would ask god. It was “what is the purpose of extreme suffering?” That made me wonder. I meditated on it for a while because I never thought about the ‘extreme’ side of suffering. It stuck with me randomly for a few days and just recently, a clear...

    I'm fairly certain I just finally figured out

    why I'm such a loner. Despite being friendly around others and always having people receive me warmly, I've never actually sought out anyone's company. I never initiate meetings of my own volition and usually end up hanging out with others upon invitation, and even then it's...

    What a feeling when your worries

    and concerns start to make sense. When a passing conversation provides you with the dots that make the full connection.

    Office Space

    I'm the middle aged version of Peter from the movie Office Space, with a bit of Lawrence thrown in. I'd do the same thing as Lawrence if I had a million bucks.
