    Friends Are Like Underwear...

    Some crawl up your as... Some snap under pressure Some don't have the strength to hold you up Some get a little twisted Some support you Some are your favorite Some are cheap and get bent out of shape And some actually cover your as.. when you need them

    I had an extremely intelligent woman on EP send

    this in a private message to me. I believe she has posted it elsewhere in one of her own stories, but I simply had to share it here, too. If you see this, please know I found it extremely profound and have read and reread it so many times I've nearly committed it to memory...

    We waste our life putting ourself down,

    so much time that we ever don't stop to see that we are truly good enough. We spend too much time with our heads down an hearts closed, and never get a chance to look up from the ground and see that the sun is shining and tomorrow is another day. :)

    I Am Proud Of My Heart

    I'm proud of my heart.  It's been played, stabbed, cheated, burned and broken,  but somehow it still works. There is nothing more beautiful than a person whose heart has been torn apart, but still believes in the beauty of love.
