    You see, that’s the thing about a girl,

    Her kisses leave you breathless Her eyes become your world But it never seems to matter where she stops, lingers or starts She’ll sometimes revive it, sometimes break it, but she will always steal your heart --Michele L. Rivera

    All The Right Things

    The word that soothes a trouble soul, a troubled soul.That mends emotions that have broken.The right thing to say is the word that not only fixes and heals but is also true.Those words, those phrases, are rare.

    If I knew all the right things to say then

    maybe people would see my side of the story and stop yelling at me for not following them. If I could say all the right things maybe things would be different and things could change, I'd be braver, happier, etc.

    Those who really love you don't mean to hurt

    you, and if they do, you can't see it in their eyes, but it hurts them too.

    It's obvious I don't!

    People get an image and persecute you because you don't measure up to it for them. There are injuries made that way, and I'm probably just as guilty!

    I may be 17, but occasionally I tend to still

    possess the mind/mouth of a child. I wish sometimes I could pause time so I can think before I act.

    To my childhood best friend.

    His dad has cancer and he hasn't told me yet. I see his tweets crying out for help, but I don't want to barge into his life when he isn't ready to tell me yet. I want to give him more comfort than a simple "I'm here if you need me."

    But Sadly I Don't

    I remember one time my brother came to me for help. He was severely depressed and didn't know what to do. I really wanted to help him but I had no idea what to say or do to make things better for him. I tried to think of exactly the right things to say but I had nothing. I've...

    Well she's back. Said she was here to stay.

    I have so many unanswered questions and mixed up feelings, but like always, I'm going to push them away and take this opportunity. I want to be happy.

    Everything seems to come

    so easily for others. People seem to know things I don't, like they attended some class that teaches them how to say or do all the right things. They are so confident and the words just flow like they're programmed this way. All the while I'm sorting through a jumbled mess of...

    Gibberish

    Often times... All that ends up coming out is pure gibberish! Throughout my life, childhood and teen years and now also adult-years, I've been better at writing words, than speaking them. The written words just seem to be a better friend of mine. It didn't ever matter if I were...

    What are you talking about?

    I always have the right things to say. If the other person doesn't like it or is too sensitive for the words I say then they are lower on the food chain.

    God, this is me to a T.

    .. I get such social anxiety which makes it even more difficult. It's only really in groups of people but I feel like anything I say comes out as awkward, unfunny and embarrassing and I can't stop thinking about wanting to take it back the whole time

    I honestly don't know what to say to guys

    if I like them. Like I just don't know what to say. I don't want to be rejected because I don't know the right things to say. It gets on my nerves that I just can't come up with the right words.

    Sometimes when it comes to you I get tongue-tied. You are so very special to me and sometimes I think that I just mess things up when I open my mouth. I wish I had the right words to say all the time. I love you!

    I Never Will

    That's part of being alive and working through life's little bumps in the road. I do my best and with great sincerity and that matters most usually. I don't think I will ever always know the right words, but: "I truly love only you my darling" is always a good place to start.
