I Want to Be a Better Person

SEND TO A FRIEND:

    Been through a lot. Lost a lot along the way.

    Confidence, peace of mind, friendships, too. However, God is good, and I'm looking at the negative through positive lenses, because he's about to replace all that I've lost with better.

    There are things I have done,

    things I want to forget and never let anyone know. I want to make up for the thing's I've done, I want to be proud of who I am.

    We all make mistakes in this wicked world

    but that doesn't mean our mind is corrupted forever I think all we need is little rest from this clamorous world and take solace in solitude and who knows u can become a lot better bcoz afterall we all ar born innocent.

    Sometimes the only reason

    why you won't let go of what's making you sad is because it was the only thing that made you happy.

    I spent an hour and a half with an 82 year old

    lady in the small confines of a tiny square fire lobby. It was one of those life happenings that just kind of happen. She fell down the steepest flight of stairs ever landing on the concrete lobby floor on her head and shoulders. There wasn't an awful lot I could do except keep...

    Here's some stuff about me.

    Bad and then good. 1. I have no ambition, no drive to truly improve myself. 2. I procrastinate badly (see no. 1) 3. I have a serious lack of empathy for anyone I do not have any connection to. 4. I was seriously depressed most of my life, to the point where I made a list of my...

    i think so often when people converse,

    they focus too much on trying to relate to the other person, so the conversation turns into a series of exchanges of personal anecdotes... and then people only talk about themselves... there was this one quote that always stuck with me, and that was "Great minds discuss ideas...

    I am going to start doing something

    once a week or more that stretches my comfort zone, and helps me feel alive. Today I will pay for someone's groceries in front or back of me, or pay for their meal in the drive through, or some type of random act of kindness that presents itself. I'll return and report.

    I want to be a better person.

    Where people accept my fet and accept me as a member of society and not just a guy with a Kin.k. Only then can I build myself into the person I wanna become.
