    I'm trying to be a better person

    for my own sake. When I help others it helps me. When I'm busy my mind doesn't stab me with painful memories and thoughts. So I'm going to try new things. Learning the basics for pistols. Trying to learn Spanish. Dancing. Leather working. I'll try these first and then I'll...

    I try to be a good person.

    Honest, kind, loyal, selfless. But my eating disorder is like a moral barrier. It makes me lie, manipulate, act selfishly. I'd never dream about acting this way in any other aspect of my life. But when it comes to weight, food, diet pills, exercise, I'm a monster. I'm hurting...

    I've been dating this girl

    for 5 months, we are both 20, and we said we love each other after 2 months. But the problem is, I found out she's slept with 12 guys by age 19 soon after I confessed my love for her and now I feel confused. I understand the past is the past, but she's had 6x more partners and...

    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 have so many emotions bundled up inside of me

    but I'm so good at controlling them. To others I come off as emotionless. I seem uncaring, unsympathetic, and selfish. And the worst part, I'm kind of ok with that. Why?

    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.

    Many people, obviously the whole world,

    wanted to be a better person for themselves. However, there are many who didn't make it. Some of them made it and prove themselves to be a respectable person. I wanted to be like them. When I go up on the internet (social network), I saw many of my friends are trying to prove...
