    If I died tomorrow, I hope

    that what I have done in my life has mattered..even if only to one person, even for only a moment in time.

    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...

    I can't wait for the day

    when I can go to the People that said "you'll never be anything." And simply say "but look at me now."

    If you want something you've never had,

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

    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'm struggling to be stable in my school right

    now. I'm missing my dues and doing assignments really slowly. Part of the reason is because I get easily distracted and I'm a lazy girl. I get major panic attacks, and my anxiety level goes through the roof. I really need help to get out of this cycle, any suggestions?

    I know I should be a better person

    than I am. I have anger issues. I have trust issues. I get frustrated easily. I think I have become a loner because of this. I just don't have the motivation to socialize. Being around people escalate my issues. I know it's not healthy. As much as I enjoy my alone time, I don't...

    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...

    My world collapsed right in front me.

    The shell that was created by my loving parents no longer existed. I thought I had problems but now they seemed like an insignificant whining of a spoiled brat who is just use to get things done at his own terms. I just stood there gawking at his scars while he narrated his...

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

    lady in the small confines of a tiny square fire lobby. It was one of those life happenings that just kind of happen. She fell down the steepest flight of stairs ever landing on the concrete lobby floor on her head and shoulders. There wasn't an awful lot I could do except keep...

    I was watching one of my favorite movies today

    and I realized I was a lot like one of the characters. She was kind. Very kind. She didn't hurt people with an words and she helped people in any way that she could. I reflected on how when I was younger I wanted to be like her... I look at myself now and I can't see her in me...

    I'm the girl that talks everyone out of suicide,

    but has a hard time keeping herself from it. I'm the girl who tells everyone how beautiful, wonderful, smart, and amazing they are, because she doesn't want them to feel the same way she does.

    There are plenty of things about myself

    that I would like to change. I know for a fact that I am not the best person that I can be or the best friend that I could be. I think that pretty much everyone could say this and that there is not a person out there who is so perfect and doesn't have anything about themselves...
