    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.

    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...

    I'm a grown woman. I may not be the smartest

    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...

    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...

    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?

    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?
