    Under it all, the false smiles,

    makeup, blah blah lives the sheltered me that I'm scared no one would ever understand. It's almost like I have split personalities how I can be completely different from what I regard the real me to be :/

    We all make mistakes,

    have struggles, and even regret things in our past. But you are not your mistakes, you are not your struggles, and you are here NOW with the power to shape your day and your future.

    As you may see, there is multiple meanings to

    Being straightforward is a characteristic I

    really appreciate in person. I don't like games and I don't like drama. I shy away from people who I think have cruel intentions. I am not a prude and I'm all for fun and games, but I also know there is more to life then sex. Don't get me wrong, I love sex and all that comes...

    About my feelings. About my emotions. About what to do. Who could understand such a cornucopia of pain and happiness and confusion? I don't even understand myself. I'm tired of wanting to be happy but every time I almost reach that point, it all falls apart. Depression is no...

    When You Believe

    I've felt alone for years. I've lived in that sad pitiful world that I made for myself, consisting of heartache, loneliness, sadness and self pity. Oh, I didn't advertise it. People didn't know I felt that way, but if you looked really closely you could see that tiny squint of...

    What is it about people?

    They rush to pigeonhole you, and they move on. It's like EP people. The majority might just add you, ogle your photos, then ignore you the rest of the time. They don't want to try understand you, of how your life differs from theirs. They don't worry about understanding you...

    I think that's one of the most difficult tasks

    to thrive in, is to fully understand somebody. It simply can't be done. Yes, you can understand their emotion(s), but you'll never fully understand why and what makes them feel that way. I'd prefer somebody I can openly talk to. Somebody who doesn't judge, and would listen to...
