    Being Yourself.

    I will always be myself and I will never change the way I am because I know that being yourself can lead to many amazing things I would rather be hated for being myself than loved for being fake. I welcome any person in my life who likes to be my friend and I would love it if...

    I like me most days, I swear its true

    but the issue with being my genuine self is that I am a hypnotic forest fire mixed with a tsunami. So powerfully destructive yet natural at the same time, a balance in itself that is quite terrifying. But I would be a fool to not acknowledge that once the ashes have been swept...

    It isn't your battle,

    it isn't your place to judge. You may have your experience, but you haven't had hers. She may cope with things differently, you may not approve with how she deals with it. But in all fairness, it isn't your battle, it isn't your place to judge.

    If someone is trying to tell you

    who to be stand up for yourself.Sure people can try to tell you who to be,but who you are is based on what you wnt ,not what they want.It's your life own it! Be who you are and not what others want you to be.

    It's not complicated okay.

    I won't change who I am for others. You can call me a *****, ****, whatever the **** you want to call me. But being me is the real deal. I'm official and will not be copied, nor copy others. Done, deal, settled.

    Taking My Life Back

    I've spent far too long being the person other people wanted me to be and doing things that other people wanted me to do. My parents opinions and approval have always mattered strongly to me and I'd never want to lose my parent's respect but I can see that I need to be my own...

    I hate people swearing.

    Today almost all the filmstars use vulgar slang words. They should make films where they teach people basic discipline and morality. Today all people love Chris Pratt but I don't. I don't care if you do some charity. Call me heartless but that's how I am.

    I am quirky, silly, blunt,

    and broken. My days are sometimes too dark, and my night are sometimes too long. I often trip over my own insecurities. I require attention, long for passion, and wish to be desired. I use music to speak when words fail me, even though words are as important to me as the air...

    I will stop hiding my real self.

    I'm unhappy and that's not who I am. I'm up beat. I have learned how to be a people person. I'm a strong person. Not this weak shy girl I've become. I'm tired of being this way. So as of now no more.

    The Helpful Stranger...

    I noticed a man when I was out today. He was older, maybe 78, and sat by himself on a bench reading the paper, completely oblivious to the hustle and bustle going on around him. As I sat down for a moment on the other side of the bench, he looked up just marginally from his paper...

    It is tormenting when one is,

    after struggling to the utmost, ready to head up for a new journey and then out of the blue, some thoughtless, mean-spirited beings come in the way just to act as a barrier that depicts the ruthless nature of someone, one hardly knows.
