    I wanted to be single, get the idiot of a husband out of my world................ After years I finally got it! To start wondering what the heck now?? I don't want him back - never, ever will I go that route again. But Freedom is it not just another word for nothing left to...

    I've had a really hard life,

    as many has had, I'm not asking for forgiveness for my actions I have taken at that time, as I've been trying to make good on many. But now knowing I'm dealing with ptsd and bipolar as well as a couple of others, I now know where my actions have come from, and am still working...

    No one seems to understand how difficult it is

    to lose 4 pets and a good friend in less than 5 months and not be okay. They all expect me to be the same person I was before it all happened. But I just can't.

    Last summer I had a pair of sandals I loved.

    It's rare. They had Velcro, brown and woodsy, sturdy and protective, easy on easy off, a secure walk. Besides I thought they looked decent for their comfort to be had. And a rare find to be very pleased with a shoe. The foot should not know it has a shoe on except awareness in...

    Don't talk about how I act,

    speak, what I say or do when you don't know a single thing about me personally or even spoken to me. How dare you speak ill of me behind my back. I hate it when people act childish past the age of 20. There are so many people in industry and "higher education" that are as dumb...

    Some days life just rests it's weight on you.

    Some days you want to find a dark cave and shiver. Some days just need total unconsciousness.

    You know it's been a while

    Simple...

    No one has it all figured out, especially not the people who are acting like they do and judging others because of it. Pretending to be something you aren't because you're trying to please a bunch of judgmental hypocrites is not the way to be happy. If what other people thought...

    I hate when people judge me.

    I'm not one to be judged and I don't like it. Someone judges me, I tell them to go away or else I do tell someone about it. I've gotten police involved with people at my school in the past, and I've even used some self defence before. And all because people judged me

    Everyone's life is quite different on some ways

    and others its the same. All of us earn an income of some sort or another, shower, dress, eat, sleep, and do basic life functions. What makes us all different is the way we react to life situations and how we go about our daily life. You cannot judge a person by what he has...

    A conversation that I have had with my children.

    I taught them from an early age to not just accept outward appearances. A person is more than what they look like. They are a sum total of looks, experiences and feelings. No one thing can define a person or their worth.

    They say before insulting a man,

    you should walk a mile in his shoes. That way when you insult him, you'll be a mile away and you have his shoes.

    If there's anything on this earth

    that annoys me, it's people who judge before they know someone. You have NO IDEA what a person has been through, NO IDEA what has led them to the point in their life that they're at when you meet them; chances are high that there's a solid reason for the way they act, look...

    This, to me, is the root of kindness.

    Considering what others have been through in their lives, and see if you match up, or if you can truly understand what's going on with them.
