ColdThis seems cruel and selfish.. And from the outside, it is. But I'm unhappy. I don't get what I need. I can't find anyone who is reliable and selfless, humans like that just don't exist. I want someone with no material drive. Someone who can sit with me and watch the clouds roll by. Someone who is content and easy going. Someone who I would walk half way around the world just to see. I want someone whose mind is clear. I want someone who only has eyes for me. I want someone who sees the world like I do. Someone who can relate. Someone who will finally make me feel like I'm no longer a stranger to this planet. Someone who only wants me. I don't know why I settle. Maybe it makes me a bad person. Maybe it's because I don't want to force my expectations on another being. Maybe I deserve this. Maybe I deserve to be alone forever. I want to do more things for myself. I want to run away again. I don't want to hurt anyone. But I need to find my match who doesn't exist. And I need to sleep in t

Finding Me"I'm having a hard time again. I keep feeling like I'm a ton of different people one moment, and then like I'm no one. I constantly lose myself and walk away not really knowing what kind of a person I want to be. Everyone keeps pressuring me to be someone else, but I haven't even had enough time to figure out who- I am."
Life AgainLife is hard.
We lose the people we love.
Yet we love because it makes us feel complete.
We get hurt and betrayed in ways we never could imagine.
Yet we trust because we need to put faith in someone.
We mess up and make mistakes.
Yet we need to take chances in order to learn.
We never have enough time.
Yet we fight for it and make memories.
We have to accept some of the most difficult things.
Yet without it, we'd suffer denial.
We have to make hard choices.
Yet we know that a choice itself is a blessing.
Another Reality CheckGay marriage is legal in my country. Here's a list of all the problems it has caused me:
My thoughts on Human LifeEveryone has their own battles, that's personal to them. From my parents perspective, I was a "mistake"; sticky notes, chocolate-chip cookies, beer and popcorn were also mistakes. I didn't have the greatest life growing up. My parents split up and I wasn't always in the best home, my mom kicked me out at 16 and I had to stay with different people for a while. So fucking what? I still value MY life even if some people don't like me. I'm not going to base my experience in this world off someone elses opinion of me (including my parents). That's stupid. Why should anyone else choose that for me? I choose to enjoy life and I'm happy to be alive. My situation only affected me positively, it made me the strong woman I am today, I am a mother. My child was also unplanned, but some of the best things in life are unplanned. I don't think anyone deserves the right to decide if someone should be dead or alive. I don't support the death penalty either, but I do agree with life imprisonment for peo
The Laws of ForgettingIt gets better, I say, when someone has lost someone, because it does. You know, I’ve realized that when you lose someone it’s not always their death that’s making you sad. It’s yourself. You make yourself guilty. You feel that if you don’t cry enough for them, don’t die enough for them, don’t feel sad enough for them, that you are a bad person. You don’t want to let go of your sadness, because you’re afraid if you let go of your sadness you will be letting go of them as well. There’s a point where you have to realize that not being sad about them is the greatest thing you can do for them, because dying for someone is not the best thing you can do. Living for someone is. They’re fine if you forget them slowly, as you are bound to eventually. And I’m not telling you that you should never cry, and that you should be happy the second they’re gone. It doesn’t work like that. I know. You should cry, a
I've never read the book but I've lived the storyThe idea of being an adult,
what I call "the Illusion of Maturity"
was thought to personify moral values.
It seemed to make people ignorant,
stubborn and even a little childish.
Morals did not make the world any better.
Now we believe the illusion of being immature
because we're all afraid of growing up to fast;
I think that we possess knowledge beyond our years and
we're not acting our age so to cope with it.

TraditionWhile tradition may be considered important by many, I believe that tradition has lately been put into so much importance, that it becomes more important that morality. Spanish bullfighting is much worse that most other types of animal abuse that could get one in jail. However since it is such a long tradition, it was able to buy a plot of land from the government to put and arena on. Hazing is even worse. It is often clearly physical abuse, but government run universities still support it. What makes us so willing go so far to keep tradition though. What is it about a ceremony that seems to have no real benefit to society, that makes us do anything to keep it.
I think that it is not the actual ceremony that we are disparate to keep. I think that unconsciously, the ritual is representative of our current way of life, and we believe that without it, more important things will change. I can understand this mindset very well. Change often can be scary, and can actually have negative affec

Beyond personalityLife is not a personality development program. It is a planned attempt to develop our soul. Make peace with your personality. It is not the most important part of you. That is the soul. It is the only thing in you that is not temporary, and the thing you get to take forward, along with your karma. So, don't get carried away by your personality. Or anybody else's, it is not who they really are. When you are able to see through your own personality, you are then able see people for who they are, beyond what they project. When you find the courage to be who you are, you allow others to do the same. When you end the personality game, you free yourself first.
Do you manage to bring your soul, your heart into your personality, and everything you do? Do you do things lovingly? Then it is worthwhile to have whatever personality you have.
People who think they have a great personality, turn the facade into a prison. They just might be flamboyant, bold, or talkative, and some often end up as obn
