    The truth: is it okay to physically discipline

    your child to educate them or punish them? What do you think? I think Dr Phil said he uses it, but doesn't abuse of it. I really think it depends. To me if there's another way, I would use it. I think it might work for some, but not all kids take it the same, and some parents...

    It's ridiculous when some people think

    that religion is the based on anything people did in life, the good or the bad, the right or the wrong. I don't think so.. No matter what religion you are believe in, how many GODs or GODdesses you are worship if you can't do good things to people around you, that's all just...

    I pretend to be happy almost all the time.

    I even fool myself. I'd rather not exist, but I have a wonderful life really so I don't have any real reason to feel this way. I feel trapped by those I love most of the time and feel like I'm only living for them when I want nothing from life.
