    The mistakes I did in the past,

    those I cannot undo. And while I am not proud of the past, I am not afraid to say that it has helped me become what I am now...Not perfect. Many wants to be better versions of themselves and I think it's okay. But the idea of a better person is one that leads to perfection...

    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 want to be someone

    who doesn't waste his life away. But how can I if my laziness just takes over. I spend 60hours a week doing nothing.

    I want to change the world.

    I want to do something extraordinary. I want to do things no one else has. I want to inspire. I want to live my dreams. But no matter how hard I try, I end up realizing that what I have now, Is what I'll always have. And that when I do try, I question myself for to long on...

    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...

    for improvement. I am a nicer person than I was 10 years ago, 9 years ago, 8 years ago. . . It is progress not perfection. I try not to measure myself by others. A 12 Step Program has taught me to take a personal inventory of my grosser handicaps. I realize, that at times, I am...

    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 feel so low and worthless.

    I've made so many mistakes and I'm constantly haunted by them. I'm currently deployed over seas and I'm scared. I'm married and my wife I can tell doesn't love me like she use to. It's all my fault. I broke her heart so many times and now every mistake I've made haunts me.

    who is larger than life, rich and famous. All I want is to be a reliable son, a dependable big brother, a genuine friend and a well rounded person with a balanced life.

    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...

    Over thinking, over analyzing

    or simply confused. I feel lost in my own life I have created for myself. The friends I have chosen I only slightly connect with. We laugh dance sing and all sorts of crazy things but I always feel like I am on the out side. I have come to a point in my life of reflection. So...
