    Recently I just deleted an entire circle of

    "friends" who have lied and trashed talked me for years, or shall I say one in particular who just loved to run me down... It hurt to let them all go but not as much as it hurt trying to keep them happy with who I was ... Just going to be me :)

    All my life I've been envious of Angels;

    instead of embracing the creature of the darkness within, afraid of what the Angels may think. It's time all that was set aside. Today is the day, I shall rule in an infinite dark beauty as the Devil I am. -St. Wolfwood

    Fun fact about me: I hide my true self. Here on EP, I show most of me. I show myself through these stories and experiences. There isn't one experience in my list that I'm not going to write a story about, because they all have a place. But when I go to school or even hang out...

    But I'm a nice guy, mostly. I have unusual views of life, I'm a bohemian, atheist, free thinker. I'm a pretty big guy with a disability. People see me, they make judgments. They make judgments on things I say, whatever. Why is it so hard for people to step around or over...

    You're judging with your eyes,

    with your fake smile and you may say I'm your 'friend', but that means you shouldn't try to make me something I'm not. I'm okay with me. So just accept me as I am or don't accept me at all.
