    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.

    I'm not as kinky as I thought I was.

    .. Oh, sure, everything's relative and I suppose I'm a little kinky but I'm not that wild. I like thinking about kinky stuff more than anything but I really don't see myself going wild... and that's okay.

    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 do have a tendency to push people away.

    It is not what I want. But I also don't want to get into what I'll call "dutiful friendships".

    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.

    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
