    The Real Me.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...
