    Mom Told About Me........

    Mom told about me that  I learn lessons the hard way , I cant accept things what  I am told easily and normally  without judging , i always ask  "" why ?? ""  That's why i learn from the harsh reality not from the words of  older persons and relatives .

    Over & Out

    Apparently the most painful lessons are the most difficult for me to accept. I don't want to see what I don't want to believe Even I can't ignore what is directly in front of me. This is a mistake I will never make again.

    Nothing Is Ever Easy For Me

    All the lessons I learn have been the hard way.  And the kicker is, when I try to share my experinces with others, I just get the "what do you know?" response.  It is like I'm Cassandra and no one beleives what I tell them even though it is true.  Oh well...

    Ashamed

    I held a double standard with someone I loved, playing games with him to ensure he truly cared about me. I am disgusted with myself. I presented myself as more witty and smart than I actually am, so he fell in love with a fraud.

    Near Miss

    It's an elementary precaution - look both ways before crossing the street. My sarcastic pleadings for an unusual, news-making death - in a bout I recall the old addage, "Be careful what you wish for." Despite not really wishing for it, I nearly got it. I was walking in...

    What I Am Now

    Yes, I have learned a lot about myself, about trusting myself, having faith in myself the hard way. Let me start it from the very beginning of what had happened. I was very secured, very comfortable of what I had that time. I had a great job with good income, had friends who...

    We must hurt in order to grow, fail in order to know, and lose in order to gain. Because some lessons in life, are best learned through pain.
