    Squished Grapes Are Just One Big No-no

    I want to leave this house. Maybe even out of the country, hopefully. Because sometimes I feel like my family's destroying me. Sort of sucking all the energy and emotion away. I suppose I should feel guilty, but I don't. Almost funny, because I've been so good at hiding my...

    Good Bye

    I'm in a prison of my own making for the past twenty-years, and the past can't be changed, but I won't imprison myself again to anyone or anything. Not to LOVE, nor DUTY, or OBLIGATION, or GUILT.  I won't throw more good years away....not even a day. I'm breaking these chains...

    Freedom

    Too many times I always get stuck in a muck. I have never truly expressed my freedom because of those attachments you have to be responsible for. Especially when it comes to my close friends and family. It can literally be toxic to my health, living to other people's...

    My parents are not strict,

    my government isn't oppressive, and I am not busy. Money seems like the thing that takes away freedom. If you don't have enough of it, you have to spend a lot of time working to get it. If you have money, then you might end up wanting to spend a lot of time working to keep it...

    I wonder how much of a difference it is between

    doing what I want and compromising with the important people in life. And how far left do I have to go to make them feel alright? I feel like everyone wants things from me that I either can't or am not willing to give.
