    My Best Bud

    I have just known him for going on two years,  he has been staying here with me a little over a month, and in that time he has taught me quite a bit.   To be a little more patient, to admit when i am wrong. That some people are worth fighting for. Not to let...

    My Best Friend

    He was the one who opend my eyes. Don't believe everything you are told. Trust in yourself. Stand up for your beliefs. Make some real noise if you aren't happy with the circumstances. Give a damn about the opinion of the people who don't give a damn for yours. Be...

    For Better Or Worse

    This question has really got me thinking this morning. I suppose I've always been rebellious in my own way and have always questioned pretty much everything.  I can say that I learned some very basic values from my parents, for example, in regard to work ethic, particularly...

    Learning

    The person I have learned the most from is...myself. Sure, I learned things from my parents. I learned from my dad, to never trust anyone as far as I can throw them. I dont trust anyone much, thanks to him. I learned from my mom, to be a coward, and not stand up for herself. She...

    How Could You Choose One?

    My High School Teacher

    He taught me to focus on my inner feelings and to let those feelings lead me through life.  I learned more about myself in “Honors English” than I had in all nine previous years of school combined.  This same teacher opened my eyes to the joys of journaling...

    Myself

    I've never had a mentor. I was never very close with either of my parents or my brother. So I had to learn from books, and from watching the people and the things happening around me. Situational awareness, and lesson retention is everything. If one stops to pay attention to what...

    My Brother!

    My brother is one of my best friends in a sense. One of the few people I completely trust. Although he is younger than I am; he 'educated' me and got me into One Piece, D&D and Firefly among other things. He's kept me grounded when I needed it. He and I can talk about...

    It's a Long One

    I would say my dad. He's taught me a lot. He had a horrible, horrible childhood. His mom locked herself in her room and drank all day long. Thus, eight children were left to their own devices (not good). His dad was never home because he worked three jobs (one with 24 hour...
