    I hope one day you will realize i did truly care

    for you. I promise you're gonna miss me being there, putting up on you, refusing to give up on you. You're gonna regret everything that you've done to me including all the damage you've caused. And someday you'll turn back and i wont be waiting for you any longer. I might have...

    Today, I read some fan mail,

    just to make sure there weren't any crazies in there before I sent them off to the authors. But they're mostly from kids anyway, so they're not crazy. Yet. But I read some damn inspiring, heartfelt, and touching things. So many of them were how they hated reading before, but...

    Long time overdue. My mom called me today

    and I decided to "establish boundaries" sooner rather than later. I told her that she causes a lot of my anxiety and I feel she is judgmental and this is why I can't talk to her about anything. I also told her to stop calling me so frequently and allow me to be the one to...

    Life

    In life we do things. Some we wish we had never done. Some we wish we could replay a million times in our heads. But they all make us who we are, and in the end they shape every detail about us. If we were to reverse any of them we wouldn't be the person we are. So just live...

    it's that you do get mad. It's not that you are good or bad, it's that you are both. People who try to be good do it inauthentically. Those that do things they don't want to do, resent others for it. The god of the bible is as vicious as he is kind. Those that try to be good...
