    Never borrow money from a loved one.

    Or even a 'liked'one Never lend a loved or liked one money. It gets messy, it gets terrible and it gets catty. It's bad. But if I ask for money, it'd be nice if you won't miss it. Because I'm bad at paying back. Hello, my name is Sam and I'm a borrowholic. I've been...

    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 .

    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...

    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...

    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.

    Life's Demerit System

    All married men will attest to some real wisdom in this....In the world of romance, one single rule applies:MAKE THE WOMAN HAPPY!  Do something she likes, and you get points.  Do something she dislikes, and points are subtracted.  You don't get any points for doing something...

    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.

    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...
