    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.

    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 really do, but my ego always gets in the way.

    But, I don't know exactly what my ego wants. It never seems satisfied. It always wants more and always thinks that it's right all the time. Please ego, allow me to breathe, so that I may enjoy life.

    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 feel like I'm not good enough

    so often. Not good enough for what? I don't exactly know. I feel insane because of my rape fantasies, and oftentimes feel like I am truly just an object. But I feel like the time is now as far as changing how I think, and I hope I can be a better person soon.
