    I Want To Be Selfish For Once

    Its funny how something tiny can make a big difference. I recently unwrapped one of my favorite candy treat's and the wrapper said: "Keep the promises you make to yourself" I guess what struck me the most after reading that was that I couldn't think of the last time I made a...

    Stubbornness (please Pardon The Profanity)

    I have my days when I want to quit...but no.  To commit suicide now would mean the bastards who hurt me all those years win.  **** that!  If I was gonna take that route, I should have done it in my hometown where it could have damaged my dad's rep.I've come too far to quit now...

    I will not quit. Not this time.

    I have quit billions and trillions of times. I have mental illnesses that cause my emotions to be erratic. I can be unpredictable. This time though, I am not giving up on what's necessary. Taking care of my body will help with the emotions. Today I am going to the gym as much as...

    It's so hard to describe

    that moment. That precise moment. My acl was torn at the time I heard the crunch, I didn't know what it was. I just knew that for some reason the shooting pain going into my knee was excruciating. It made the heat of the day a bit more hotter, it made what sweat was beading on...
