    We All Need To Get Along

    Lately I feel bad for the whole human race. Why do we keep on thinking that we can get rid of a problem by eliminating the other person. There can't be that much satisfaction in killing another. Some folks say 'pray for world peace', while others don't do anything, including...

    I'm afriad to go to a clinic and ask for hormones. I hope I meet someone sometime that would encourage me to go and maybe even go with me the first time. Why can life be so embarrassing at times? I guess it's our instinct not to like to be judged or scrutinized.

    I'm afraid of growing old and regretting my decisions. I don't regret the things I do, because they all make me grow and learn, but I'm afraid of regretting the things I DIDN'T do. I'm not afraid of dying, but I'm afraid of dying alone. And I'm not tagging anyone :)

    I'm afraid of being sad for the rest of my life. I'm afraid of bugs. I'm afraid my mother will get tired of me- that EVERYONE will get tired of me. I'm afraid I'll never be good enough. I'm afraid I won't be able to survive in this world. I'm afraid of the future.
