I Just Realized

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 228 People

    I realized that in my previous relationship I

    acted like a complete dumb ***. I am very regretful of how I acted and I will make sure it never happens again. It was a good learning experience.

    That I'm a minor character in other people's

    lives. That I may encounter someone for only a fraction of a second in our entire lives. And that me and that other guy are one in billions of people who all have their own stories. You look familiar.

    all these wonderful things on it that have gone unacknowledged! Please forgive me for rudely ignoring your thoughtful gestures! I usually use the app and didn't know that was there! Thank you everyone!

    That I Have

     Amazing friends who don't act like they understand me or they don't lie to me... they like me for me and nothing else... My old friends always acted like they understood me and they always lied to me... I'm so glad to have all of my friends that understand me..

    One moment is eternal.

    Eternity passes like a breeze. What an enduring passage. What a beautiful melody. What chaotic obstacles which have been put in their place. What small gestures keep me in pace. See me and my smile give me a warm embrace.

    Old news.. Everyone has different likes

    and dislike.. It is a maddening strange world at times. Whatever I may think of someone, stereotype or whatever, gender role, there will something that dont quite fit it.. We truly are very different, while still being very much alike.

    I have commitment issues.

    It's not like I would ever cheat on someone, but I think if I was dating I could never actually stay w/ them. My friendships don't last so long, the max is 4 yrs. Maybe it's due to my childhood? Or just something else?

    I always thought alarms played

    so long to make sure you got your *** outta bed. I just discovered the secondary purpose of playing long enough so when you inadvertently turn one on, you have enough time to figure out what the hell gadget in your house is playing music so you can turn it off. :D

    So far this year I realized a lot.

    I realized people have their own problems to deal with. I learned that some people don't care about as much as it seems they do. I realized you only got yourself. Of course there are people out there who love you but at the end of the day you only have yourself

    I am selfish. I want it my way.

    Life should be how I want it and things need to come when I say. Truth be told. I gave my life to Jesus... So I give that mess up and openly say... I'm not my own. I was bought at a price and God is good.
