    A Great Life, That I Don'T Want

    My name is John Doe, and I was given an amazing life, a privelaged one. My parents together make 500+ a year, and are paying for my college life right now, but this isn't what I want. Someone else may have made more from this life, but my path isn't this. I will be a success, but...

    "Speak the Truth In Love"

    It's not what you say, but how you say it. I know people have said that a hundred times but it really is true. People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care. Even strangers like here  on the net

    I'm Such a Chicken

    I wish that I could tell people what I really thought/felt without having that sick feeling of being bashed or made to feel stupid/ignorant. I don't have a college education, I don't know big fancy words. Honestly, I know very little about a lot (if that makes sense). Maybe I'm...

    Speak Up

    i've never been completely hesitant to speak my mind, but over the past few years i've become even better about it. i used to be more reluctant, but once i started i was able to see that it feels good to say what's on your mind. bottom line, i have reasons for thinking the way i...

    Speaking Without Being Put Down

    I have always had issues with speaking my mind. It took me long enough to figure out why I am that way. Growing up I was always told I was stupid so I guess I felt that anything and everything I did was stupid. I'm still a little on the shy side when it comes to saying what is on...

    All pretenses aside, I miss a part of me

    that use to answer to someone. I pretend I am doing alright, but I am not. I miss the companionship. There I said it, I am human too.

    Ok this seriously bothers me.

    My parents are straight up you shouldn't swear people. But here's the thing they both swear and they don't get all holier than thou on my two older brothers. Their reasoning? "It's not proper for a 'young lady'". I'm 20 years old and I'm nor allowed to say ****? Damn...
