    They say the people who exhibit the most

    kindness have experienced a lot of pain. The ones who act like the don't need love are the ones who need it more. The one's who take care of everyone else need care the most. And the people who smile may be the ones who cry when nobody is around.

    I want to be happy for once.

    . Ever since I can remember I was the bigger one, the fat friend, where your friends would compliment your personality more than your actual appearance. That is my life, or shall I say not going to be anymore. It is time for change, I am done feeling this way, self conscious...

    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...

    How do I make myself happy without distractions?

    I'm a teacher and during the holidays, when I have no routine or constant socialising, I am unhappy. When I can distract myself with work - marking, planning, pastoral care - then I'm happy. Work makes me happy because I feel that I have a purpose, which makes me feel fulfilled...

    Recently, I've been seeing this wonderful girl.

    She's funny and smart but most importantly sincere. I can be my normal and dorky self around her because it seems, at least to me, that she is being herself. We can have great conversations that last for hours and when we are together I feel at ease. However, things have...

    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...
