    it would go against everything i know. how i was raised. what i've learned along the way. if you believe in something. it's worth standing up for. conforming to fit the ideals or opinions of others will only leave you less satisfied.

    Love Is All We Need

    I believe in love and I will never back down.  When you have love and compassion in your heart, you find it impossible to sit by and watch someone being abused, mistreated or neglected.

    A Matter of Principle

    My family get nervous whenever they hear me say those words - "It's a matter of principle".  It doesn't happen very often - I am after all a happy-go-lucky, live-and-let-live kind of aquarius... but every so often, something just clicks, and I turn into a...

    Don't Waste Your Energy

    I'm The Same... Sort Of

    Stand Up For My Belief

    I may have been known as an obedient person since I was a little kid. But I will never back down for something I don't believe. On the other hand, I will stand up for something I truely believe.

    I'm a Fighter When I Need to Be

     Let's just say I'm a pretty outspoken person that's not afraid to stick up for her beliefs. I won't pick a fight or anything, but if you challenge my core values, you're going to get into one intense debate. On the other hand, if you're actually open to intelligent...

    Seeing Mistakes

    It depends on what you are fighting against - sometimes you do not even have to start a fight that is useless to even begin with. Usually I fought battles for other people, I fought their battles for them, I made their problems mine, I wanted to help them see the Light, I wanted...

    I Pick My Battles
