    Olivia Penpraze

    I have just been made aware of the story of Olivia Penpraze. I think people need to be aware of her story and the story of many other young and old people who are like her. Whether they suffer from depression, bulimia, anorexia, anxiety or any other horrible disease, people...

    Without going into too much detail.

    Most Likely Never Will.

    Most people really need to step back and assess the situation before they make their move.... too many people are careless with their actions AND words. They don't think or care about how they can affect and really hurt others. Sadly, I don't think people will ever change... too...

    I honestly think that some people don't have

    that capability. my wife being one. kicking your spouse when he or she is down is wrong but I think she has no remorse what so ever. bummer.. I really wanted it to work.

    Suicide isn't cowardly,

    I'll tell you what cowardly is. Treating people so bad that they want to end their lives. (I had a fight with my "friend" when she said, that suicide is cowardly. If she only knew.)

    Everyone hurts someone unintentionally on

    Because unfortunately.

    ..ignorance can kill. The thoughtless actions taken by those who are oblivious to feelings and pain...those who can't see the tears that explain hurt...dangerously suck life by an action... one simple thoughtless action.

    It hurts to love someone.

    And not to be loved in return. But what is more painful is to love someone and never find the courage to let that person know how you feel.

    Includes Everyone

    What I wish from others, I wish from myself too. I've hurted people, seldom on purpose but it happened. The very sec it happened I knew how my opposite would feel. It was often to fight back and I felt bad because I couldn't resist to pay back.

    I wish people could understand how their actions

    and words can affect and hurt the people around them. I wish they could be able to think about what they're doing and say "how will this affect my family and friends?" And then not do it if they think/know it will have a negative and hurtful affect on their family and friends.
