    Opening Up

    I have changed a lot since my diagnosis of cancer. One major change is in my social life. Before cancer, I always kept to myself, and was really shy. I never wanted to embarrass myself by being myself. When I was diagnosed though, I was technically forced to come out of my shell...

    I just feel like it's the right thing to do.

    You don't need recognition from it, you don't expect anything in return, you just help people. I'm a sad person so I hate to see others like me because I know how hard it can be. I do what ever I can to cheer them up, no one deserves to be alone, ignored, or sad. Life's hard...

    I met this friend here,

    he's been depressed since the day we talked. I pushed him to forget about the girl he love but I found out that I couldn't. He was a hard-headed guy, sometimes I just wanna scream out of frustration cause I really want to help him. Until now, I've decided to stop telling him to...

    Minds And Emotions

    sometimes this can be challenging for me because i used to be depressed and in some way i partly still am. if i get to involved into helping sad people i filter emotions.. pretty badly and i end up getting the emotions there feeling rather than helping them fuel it out.

    I always thought little things go a long way.

    And what better way to make a change in the world, but talking to people and understanding their problems and making them feel less insecure and better about themselves? One tiny gesture of kindness goes a long way, and I intend to travel that road :)
