    I think being a better person begins with

    accepting myself how I am first. How can I put forth the effort necessary to improve something I do not love? I am a human being. I have thoughts, dreams, hopes. I feel. I am flawed and I hurt people. I am kind and I help people. I would like, always, to be the kind me...

    I'm worried that I have some sort of failure

    gene or part of my brain that wants me to fail as a person. I have done nothing worthwhile these last 7 years. Who let's their life languish for 7 years? Yeah, I've had problems, who hasn't? But I've seen people who have dealt with worse than I go on to do great things. Maybe I...

    I want to be a warrior.

    A swordsman to be exact. But alas, in this age being a swordsman might bring you on the streets. I want to go to war.... riding a horse...decimating enemy ranks ...wish I were born during Alexander the great.

    I just wanted to thank all my friends on here

    who allowed me to speak of myself to them. No judgments, no ridicule, just understanding and commutation. Thank you. I never knew how much I've been holding in and to actually speak of it, while painful and unnatural to me, has been liberating and has made me feel so much...

    In the end, it's all about persistence.

    This concept applies to almost everything regarding to accomplishment. With each one small step that you wouldn't even bother to take accounted of. Change, if anything, it just won't be a instant movement. Instead, it's a long and a painful progression. So, prepare yourself. I...

    Everyone always says no one is perfect.

    For most people when they first hear, "no one is perfect", they give up on perfection. No one is perfect though, except Jesus, but nobody is Jesus. That doesn't mean we can't strive to be perfect though. Just because we can never get there doesn't mean we shouldn't keep trying...
