    It takes a lot of courage

    for one person to stick up for someone who can't stick up for themselves. But if you choose to stand on the side line your making the wrong choice. Once you call that boy/girl a name it will repeat it self to them and they start to believe and only the people who have been there...

    I know we all need this release sometimes,

    but I just can't cry. In the last 5 years I have cried only once and it was because my father died. And I didn't cry enough. Now that a bit of time has passed I feel like crying now is too late. I know there have been other reasons that should have caused me to cry, but I don...

    "In the human heart, there is a built-in

    obsolescence factor. It does not matter how powerful and influential you are, how much education you have, how self-controlled or holy you consider yourself; your heart, if you do not guard it, will break down." ~ K. P. Yohannan, Living in the Light of Eternity

    Delayed Tears

    As a hardened man, I don't cry, I just feel numb. If it's heavy heavy impact, then I might cry very hard after absorbing the pains for a few days. This "heavy" thing had happened to me once. And for the year that followed tears would suddenly drop while I was doing something...

    Tears...

    I feel the tears starting to come, but they are held back. They stop as if to say, "why should I bother to fall when no one will notice or care."  They make it into my eyes yet retreat as if being called back into submission by a force greater than themselves.  I long to let...

    I Want To Rid Myself Of This Stress

    Studies show that when you cry, you are releasing stress chemicals (cortisol) from your body, hence, lowering your stress level. I have needed a good cry for years, and yet I can't seem to do it. I feel like I have become somewhat jaded and numb from the heartache I have...
