    If you have something to say to me. Please stand by your words and actions. I don't like it when people change their minds or back down. Right now I am angry and raw. And your confusing nature has baffled me for the last time. Get a backbone and grow up. I enjoy people...

    Think before you speak,

    I hold on to every word you say to me. Everything that spills out of your mouth means something and I analyze it for hours and try to figure you out but it's impossible. I just wish that in the heat of the moment especially during an argument you would wait and be level headed...

    People are exhausting!

    It's like they say one thing and mean another. Or they want you to just know how they feel without actually telling you. If we could read minds it would be a scary world indeed!

    I don't like : people

    who pretend to joke when they are serious. Allusions. And the "it's ok", "it doesn't matter" when you sense anger. When you're mad, don't say you aren't, don't say you're joking, just SAY IT.

    But also is very important to be a decent

    person with respect for other people and not to be purposefully mean when you say it otherwise saying what you mean and meaning what you say have no meaning at all because no one will respect the opinion of a selfish *** hole.
