    Two Lives

    I feel sometimes that i have two lives. One is the one where people see me as the upright christian who doesnt do anything wrong, works hard, clean living, loving husband, college graduate. The other is my world of sex addict, lazy, moderate that wants to say whats on her mind...

    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.

    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...

    "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...

    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...
