    I am currently experiencing emotional anguish.

    A recent event has stirred up feelings I thought I had long dealt with. A mistake I made two years ago still haunts me. My lack of self forgiveness and self acceptance has since been suppressed deep in the darkest corners of my subconscious. Occasionally it would pop up in a...

    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...

    Don't forget, nobody owes you their time.

    Cherish it and realize that each moment spent with anyone you value is a gift given by them :)

    High school wasn't the best years

    for me. I was that girl who you really didn't know but just seemed to judge. If I had to give 1 piece of advice to anyone in high school This is it... To be cool... Isn't to be popular. Don't think that because your not in that "popular group" that your not cool. Be nice. Be...

    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 don't understand how a smile helps someone's

    day. I don't understand how spending millions of dollars from charity to feed everyone in a country for 1 day would be a smart idea. Maybe I'm not a charitable person or maybe I'm missing something in my head. When things are going wrong and someone smiles at me it just sickens...

    Sometimes the only reason

    why you won't let go of what's making you sad is because it was the only thing that made you happy.

    I'm conflicted over this.

    Being or trying to be a good person seems to be a silly ideal for me to keep following. I'm thirtysomething years old...I'm not close to my family and it's impossible for me to find a long-term romantic relationship. It doesn't really matter when it comes to making money or...

    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.
