    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'm working on it. But right

    now I'm in a pretty dark and lonely place. I hope things we'll get better. I think I really just need to get out more, meet people, and work through my problems.

    I think one of my keys to being a better person

    is focusing on my strengths. I know, I know it sounds like corporate BS, but think about it. Everyone has weaknesses so why expend all of my energy trying to change my weaknesses? They may diminish, but they'll never go away. It's kind of like putting a suit on a pig. It may...

    I’m not qualified in emotional intelligence

    and have realised that, during my 34 years, I have chosen instead to merely remain detached, cold, and hard so as not to have to deal with the feelings that are often evoked during day to day life. But, fúck a duck, I have certainly started to ‘feel’ in the last few years...

    I Do

    The problem, in a nutshell, is that my definition of a better person seems to have a sliding scale. What makes a person "better"? Even if we strive for the unattainable perfection, how do we know what that is? What it looks like? There is a level if conscience that we...

    I've decided that I want to be a better person.

    I want to change. I don't want to hurt people anymore. It's been a couple of years I've been drinking. This has led me to hurt people. Lie to people. Manipulate people. Do and say horrible things to people. And I genuinely enjoyed this life. I've rejected most of my friends...

    In the end, it's all about persistence.

    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...

    Do you have a healthy relationship with your

    Emotions? Here are some questions to ask your self about your relationship with your emotions: Do you pause and listen to your emotions, to check in with what arrives and then use this to inform your actions and choices? Can you be present (very present) to others’ emotions..
