    It's ironic to be unable to live

    for yourself, but still wake up everyday trying to help someone else find hope. I never was good at myself, but god damnit if I don't try to help other people. Feel free to message me about anything :) I am also a EP Volunteer and I will be glad to help you :)

    I love helping other people.

    Except nowadays I'm more cautious about who I help because people have taken advantage before. :( Usually when I help people I'm left in the dust and I get the short end of the stick. Sometimes it isn't always reciprocated or appreciated even though I know I shouldn't expect...

    I think this is one of my best traits.

    I will separate a bit of my time to help everyone I can. The reason I do it, is I know how it feels to be helpless and lost in your mind between millions of choices, but none of them seems right to you. I know what it's like when you just want to be heard, but no one listens. Do...
