    Bring Out The Happy Child In The Other Person.

    I Want A Chance To Get My Life Back

    I am so far beyond having a "life of which I am proud" that I'm not even sure how to go about getting one anywhere close to it. I spent the majority of my "younger life" (I just turned 40 recently) striving to become the perfect adult. I took it pretty far I guess, earning my...

    I'm the guy who has always been there for everyone else; before I would have shouted this from the rooftops as a badge of honor, as a thing of courage in the face of a world I thought was too cold. I'm the guy who always tried to do right by others; naively, foolishly. I'm the...
