    Realizing That It Ain't Even Worth It

    I'm coming to realize that it is no longer worth it to respond to every negative, hateful comment someone makes to me or about me. In the past, I used to get all worked up when someone--especially someone who doesn't even know me-- would have the audacity to say the ugliest...

    That actually no one cares about me,

    unless I make them care... I read this book once when I was young.. About a boy and a dragon, that became friends through helping each other.. And a girl that lived in a small country house with her uncle that always told her no one cared what she wanted. I used to think, "My...

    Today I realized one of the most important

    things one can realize. Sometimes we all sit and let the bad over weigh us that we forget exactly how grateful we are for the people and things we do have in our life. I no longer care if someone doesn't want to be there or in my life. Because I have so many other people who...

    "Self-absorption in all its forms kills empathy,

    let alone compassion. When we focus on ourselves, our world contracts as our problems and preoccupations loom large. But when we focus on others, our world expands. Our own problems drift to the periphery of the mind and so seem smaller, and we increase our capacity for...

    Big Difference

    There is a big difference between tolerating another's beliefs AND tolerating pure b*llsh!t. Whenever you encounter a true b*llsh!ttter...HIT IGNORE MODE, they are not even worthy to be heard or to respond to!
