    I am beginning to realize I am a terrible

    person. I am a hypocrite and a backstabber. Just the other day I felt a desire to kill everyone in my classroom, imagining them all dead. Just so I could finally be alone and just take my good old time dying alone. As depressing as that might sound, it seemed rather appealing at...

    I don't think I need to better myself in the

    terms of kindness. I get told all the time that I am very sweet and kind, even when I don't think I'm displaying and kindness or sweetness. I'm just being myself. I received a lot of tips at my last job as a host/hostess because the restaurant patrons thought I was so nice. A...

    I'm currently trying hard to let go of the

    negatives in my life. I'm having hard time to get over the hatred I have toward this guy. But I am doing my best. I think it's just a matter of time. It's just really hard this time to simply 'forgive' and be able to make peace with myself like I did in the past. My relationship...

    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.

    I so want to be a better person.

    I try to be caring, loving, and supportive. but I am not terribly trusting. so very few witness this from me. although I may seem aloof, I am sympathetic.

    Here lately all I have been wanting to do is

    travel. Over the years I have found myself working, working, no fun, and just working. I just had a child and now it finally hit me that I have never had any fun in my life. I don't know if this is healthy. I don't know if it's irresponsible since I have a child and all. I just...

    I pity people who live only to tear others down.

    I pity people who want to talk about what's wrong with the stream, rather than be grateful for having a whole ocean.I pity those who prey on the innocent, kick those who are already down, and sabotage other's success.Like some may say "Only a fool says in his heart that there is...

    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...

    can't get over my ex wife

    who recently I took into my house due to her breakup and stint in rehab. I feel used because we aren't together yet she wants sex from me when she has the urge and never when I do. I was laid off in January and have recently found 2 jobs but now on the verge of eviction because...

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

    If you want something you've never had,

    you must be willing to do something you've never done.
