    So Many Times

    I just tried to give up on writing this story, see there? Okay but seriously, don't get down on yourself for feeling that way, it's natural to want to just lie on the ground in a fetal position and not want to move. It's okay to feel that, we just have to avoid acting on it.

    Sometimes it's incredibly hard to find strength to move on. But somehow I manage through the fog. Sometimes with the help of a guide.

    Give Up?

    Giving up? Yep, it's easy to give up, but It also means surrender. I hope for an impossible wish that will never ever come true, to be a girl. I stick at my hopes everyday and I feel my life today is not worth living. I'm a pessimist, I don't look at my positive points, I always...

    Life

    Sometimes I want to give up, b/c sometimes life sucks. It seems like when somethin good comes around the corner is somethin worse, it's like an evil curse. You ask yourself "Why me", when I needed a shoulder to lean on I couldn't even count on family.

    Sometimes.

    So many times I wanted to give up in many areas of my life.  I think if I do, then there's nothing to go on.  I tell myself positive things and the last thing I want to do is give up.  Does it mean I don't give up?  No, cause it still can occur sometimes and I also know, I am...
