    Nice People.

    There are quite a few of my friends that have a shady past. But that doesn't bother me. They're nice people. That's all that matters.

    I Do, But Do They?

    I love My Friends, regardless of their pasts. That's why some of them think that I am a very nice guy. But there are some of the rest dislike me that way. Even I do love them, I don't know if they love me.

    Oftentimes Because of Their Pasts.

    The mistakes we make build us into the people we have become. All of my friends are special people to me. And they rightfully deserve to be. Each and every person I meet and get to know are alive! They have feelings and emotions. Everyone has problems. but if I can help them...

    I can't really say anything

    because my past was pretty ****** too. But even if it wasn't, it's still wrong to hate or judge people based on things they can't change or control; like their pasts!

    I Do.

    I'm not the most vocal person in the world. I see and hear a lot, but don't always say anything. Many times it is because I don't know what to say. But when I see my friends, close friends, being ridiculed and degraded by others simply because of what they've done in their past...

    Well...

    I would not be friends with someone if they had a history of sexual abuse or something horrible like that. So I guess I am a hypocrite for joining this group because if I found out you touched a little kid inappropriately, we could not and would not be friends anymore.

    Friendships and Pasts

    We learn and we grow, and the past is only who we once were. We've learned and grown so much since then. The problem is that people spend too much time living in the past instead of in the present. We should be thinking of the future.
