    I'm not the type of person to be negative about

    things. I just don't want this to end up like everyone else I've been with. I'm really trying. If this goes bad though, I'm going to be done for a while. I hope it works out. This person makes me really happy ☺

    The things I want/need,

    are priceless and can't be bought, are also very hard to come by, yet it's so simple to accomplish...just takes the right person.

    For the last two months I have been throwing a

    pity party for myself. After having a rude guy tell me : "Your depressed and go get therapy but don't kill yourself." The sweetest jerk I have ever met. (Mind you he focused so much on me being mixed. He would read my posts and would throw stuff at me and he told me all these...

    but it's not in my immediate future.

    I wish life was different. I sometimes wish I wasn't born so I didn't have to feel this way. life is not fair it is not good. not in any way. not now not ever.

    I want to be happy but I'm just not.

    I am working on fixing it and it's gonna get better but all I can do now is sit in the unhappiness and wish that someone could somehow bring me out of it right now...

    Today I did something I haven't done in a while.

    I searched my ex on Facebook. The ex that destroyed me two years ago. The ex that I hated with every fiber of my being. The ex that if murder was legal, he would be the first on my list. The ex that caused me so much heartbreak without an explanation. I searched him and I...

    Such a dynamic statement.

    Simple, sure, but I doubt the achievement of it has been anything but simple. For anyone. How does one go about this then? When it's so ******* complicated to see the worth in each day. How?? I'm trying though. God knows I'm trying. The world dejects me to no end if I let it...

    Often when we lose hope

    and think this is the end. Life itself smiles at us and says, "Relax. It's just a bend, it's not the end"

    Great Short Story....Rich Man Vs. Happy Man.

    An American businessman was standing at the pier of a small coastal Mexican village when a small boat with just one fisherman docked. Inside the small boat were several large yellowfin tuna. The American complimented the Mexican on the quality of his fish. “How long it...

    Not sure why I bounce do much from happiness to

    misery all the time it's frustrating. I love ppl....and hate them. I'm lonely but, sometimes I just can't deal with communicating. I have most everything I need and want but, feel empty.

    Making others smile and respecting others makes

    A secret to happiness is letting every

    situation be what it is instead of what you think it should be, and then making the best of it.

    When I get settled in my own place,

    I want you to come visit me, and stay as long as you want. I want to come home from work and you be there....I want you to be here in my normal atmosphere, listening to each other's days....deciding what we're going to do with our nights..that would make me happy...to see you.

    Happiness doesn't come very easily to me,

    most of the time. But when it does, it could only source from a simple hello, a simple smile. To light up my day. I just want to say thank you, for anyone who cares enough to listen to me, and even bring light to my darkness. You know who you are ^_'
