    I truly believe this.

    I've loved a guy for years and I think about him literally every day and all the time. He changed my life, without even knowing it, so that's why I believe it :)

    Gianna

    Before I met her my world stopped spinning and time stood still. She made me feel again. She opened my sexuality up and made me feel accepted. She also made me fall in love with her! Without her, I'd be miserable. She's gotten me through so much, and I have as well! We're...

    There are inspiring people everywhere.

    In history, you read life stories that really make you think about your own. Like Anne Frank. I accept I am inspired by my rabbi.

    One Person!

    It could be a man, it could be a woman. Someone younger than you, someone older, even twice your age! People impact on us each and every day! I have met several inspirational people, from a teacher to the Dalai Lama! Each inspires you to be better. That is what you ultimately...

    For such a long time I've had a really negative

    Obviously, my life wouldn't be my life without my soul-mate, my wife. She is my best friend and I love her madly and I adore her. But, there are times when she balances me too much. She compensates and frankly, I take advantage and unknowingly take it for granted. I've met...

    My life has been change out of influence of

    three guys, the first one simply broke me, the second made me go back to being good just so that at the end I will be even worse than before, and the third one he was just trying to help, he didn't wanted anything from me, just that I would quit my bad habits.

    A person can definitely change your life,

    there is no doubt about that. Everyone that comes into your life changes it. I think that we learn something about ourselves from everyone who comes into our lives. If the person brings negativity, we can use those experiences to shape our reactions and strengthen ourselves to...

    that one person that fits you perfectly, doesn't need to change you, but you change for the better. Once I allow myself to step back & realize what has happened in the past few years, I have come to see that it is my boyfriend that has turned me into the person I am. & slowly...

    She changed my life for the worse
