    My Destiny

    I feel like I'm in a losing battle everyday of my life. It do feels like I'm getting closer to my destiny, some way or the other, no lie. But, at that very same time, I don't think I'll really getting there. Because I'm a failure and I'm a losing battle.

    I Want To Respect Myself

    In the past, I was not taking care of myself. But then when someone told me that I must love myself first before others, I was enlightened that I must then respect myself. That's why, I just want to feel good about myself.
