    I Find It a Bit Odd...

    ...that this group consists mainly of women.  Women are supposed to want to be beautiful, not strong.  Men are supposed to want to be strong.  If we all looked deep in our hearts, those things are what each sex would truly desire.

    I want to stand strong,

    I want to be independent, I want to stand on my own. I fed up of waiting for people to help me, depend on others for my own problems. Yet I do not know how to take the first step.
