    doing chores, no matter how much I get discriminated for being who I am, no matter how many times my parents tell me they hate me, no matter how many tears I shed, no matter how much abuse I take, I will hold my head high, look directly at the sky, and tell life that if it wants...

    Not on myself. Not on this life.

    I am way too smart to give up on myself. I know what it's like to be so depressed you couldn't even speak. I'm not giving up like that anymore. I am not going to get anywhere in life laying in bed crying and hating myself. I guess you could kind of say I'm a little too awesome...

    so I see it every morning. You know how many times I've given up? Way more times than I will ever vocally admit. I've quit so many things because fear overruled me. Isn't that a common thing though? There's no telling what we'd all do if we weren't afraid. What stops us from...
