    I'm Short-Tempered

    I have a bad temper (getting angry and sad at stupid and when I say stupid I mean REALLY STUPID) and I hate it when people tell me what to do I just hate it but as always I have no choice but to OBEY. Ugh. For once in my life I want to do things myself do anything at whatever...

    Let Me Figure It Out!

    Even if I don't know what the right thing is, even if I know I'm doing the wrong thing, I need to figure it out for my self. How can I learn from my mistakes if no one is willing to let me make them?

    It's More Than Just Perception

    Whenever I try to talk to people about being depressed and things being hard I get told that I just need to see life differently. Like "Don't just wake up and tell yourself today will suck, say today will be a good day" I'm so sick of stuff like that. I wake up and I feel wrong...

    So Sick of It.

    I'm so sick of it. I really am. People always telling me what, in their opinion, I should be doing. How I should be feeling. What I should say. What I should think. Do this. Do that. Something they did worked for them, and there-fore, it will work for me also. If it dosn't, it's...

    and I'm definitely not the most traditional, but I'm improving and working on myself as there is always space to do so. I may mess up but it's ok because that's what life lessons are about. But everywhere I go people are constantly judging me and who I'm with and it hurts...

    Who Do They Think I Am?

    Was I born to be a slave? Was I born to follow everyone's orders who ask me to? I have a perfectly good body. Not crippled, healthy weight, healthy organs and over all healthy body. How am I suppose to say no to someone who doesn't have what I have?

    I'm stubborn. I don't like conforming all the

    time and molding myself to fit others' standards. Sometimes i want to set my own standards for myself.
