    Im in class right now & im thinking of

    everything i used to be and all the morals i used to follow... And how cold my heart has because. I accept the negativity that life pushes at me. I used to have this way about me where nothing could break my smile and no one was ever allowed to see me cry. I would never even...

    In Some Way I Guess Everyone Wants To Better Themselves..

    A natural occurrence? Definitely a normal feeling. Of course the grass always looks greener on the other side, right? Some people want to be stronger, some people want to be more sensitive.. I'm very sensitive and I wish it wasn't so critical to my feelings. But hey! We're...

    The Real Me.

    The me that people talk about. A man who has "potential" "talent" and "charisma" as others have labeled me. Flattering and cool but there are just as many tags thrust upon me that are the polar opposite; negative. Who is that guy? I have seen him...

    Hoping There Is Still Chance?

    I hated myself so bad. For more than two decades roaming in this world, I never gone far and stuck in this sheezz. But I want to be better, I am working to be better. It is not easy being all alone, still beaten up and emotionally abused by my parents. It's not easy that they...

    I Feel Like Such A Freak...

    The only thing I have going for me is that I run my own daycare and for some reason the kids seem to love me. Socially and personally I am a disaster. I had friends but lost them through no fault of my own and so have no social life. I am the eternal singleton and still live at...

    I haven't been on here

    as much because it was honestly bringing me down. It was nice to wallow in self-pity and let it all out for a few months, but my life isn't so bad. I'm alive, I have a job, a family that loves me, and a God that would never leave me. Last year was a tough year but maybe it...

    i keep finding myself getting caught up into

    stuff i have no business getting into. i've been getting better at just saying i don't need to hear this and walking out when i know it is just harmful gossip, but sometimes it creeps up and bites you when you least expect it.

    Always

    I've never been lazy, never afraid to work and prefer to be independent. Be it picking up a hammer, sanding down AND repainting a bang up on the car, repairing the hole in the wall, what ever. I'm a good person with a huge heart. I give and give even when I have...

    It's far easier, words flow a lot better. Granted, most of the things I think tend to sound better in my head, but it's easier to write than to speak.

    When you have people around you that love you it is easy to say thank God i am alive. When you have no one and you survive. You say -: "What's the point of my life?"

    Nope I don't. We are all humans so why would I think I'm better than anyone? Irrespective of our race,gender or age we are still people. We are all equal.
