    I Want To Change...

    Today I realized that I wanted to change. I've been a very ugly person towards two people that I love very much. I get mad and I take out my anger on them. I yell at them. I basically blame them for my problems. One of them is my best friend who is like a sister to me...

    I Don't Know What To Say.

    I am a terrible person. Or maybe I am exaggerating. But I feel like a terrible person everyday, even if people tell me I'm not. I want to improve myself everyday, but as each day goes by, I'm not changing. I feel like the same (disgusting) person everyday. I just want to be well...

    I'd like. I'd also like to find someone to

    blame as for why I have my shortcomings. But it all always comes down to the choices you make. Sometimes, you just listen to that voice in your head telling you to do what you know is wrong, because wrong feels good for that moment.
