You're too busy chasing your dreams and I'm patiently waiting for my time to be with you. It's okay because I want you to reach your goals and dreams in life. It's okay, really. But what's not okay is my feelings slowly fading away. I can't help it nor stop it. For the passed years the times that you're not with me, I'm all alone with my thoughts, they kept me company. I learned how to spend time with myself, and I'm fine with it. I didn't have to look for a company to keep me away from loneliness. I was okay being alone all the time. Slowly, I got to know me. I got to know who I am, what are my passions in life, what keeps me happy, makes me sad. I got to know me. I guess this also comes being an only child, I embraced the feeling of loneliness and it became normal...

People are always asking me to write stories. Not many people, but the people who know me. The people who care to read what I have to say. Who think my mind is filled with optimism and light-hearted anecdotes meant to inspire and bring momentary escape from reality. But the stories I give them are always the “Happily Ever After” stories. The good times and the laughs and the tears of joy, not sorrow. How many happy memories are there really in comparison to the bad? We are constantly trying to convince ourselves that the bad doesn’t exist. We try to prove to ourselves that, as long as we have a certain amount of good stories rattling around in our heads then the bad stories will somehow cease to exist. That will never change anything though. Not now, at least. Just because I made...

No matter who you are, or how old you are there are always two things that a majority of people try to run from; their past and their mistakes. We think that these things define who we are and that this is the way that everyone will always view us, but that is not who you are, don’t let your past perceive you. The past does not define who we are and neither do our mistakes. We allow them to because we think that is the way it has to be. We let people see us for our past and our mistakes when they should be seeing who we really are at this moment. Let's face it, our past and mistakes are all trials for who we are becoming. You do things without thinking, or without wondering what the cost of what you do is. We think that in that moment the things we are doing is okay, that they are...

There were times when I hated those extra four pounds on my hips and that square of visible cellulite at the inside of my thighs (yes, just behind the knee joints); I disliked my (almost) flabby arms and weren’t that fond of my thick hair, either. Now, I see I’ve been crazy to let the best shape of my life slip away through my fingers without me paying any solid attention and graceful appreciation to it. Still, the experience of being pregnant and rocking my baby girl in my arms can’t really compare to any body-lament, so I’ll spare you the drama. Looking myself in the mirror these days, the reflection is way different than it used to be. Interestingly enough, this reflection of a person I feel like I barely know keeps staring back at me in amazement. The experience is magnificent,...

To Marcos, I know that you are going to hate me for doing this, but I am tired of you complaining and talking trash on the wonderful powers pineapple has. Ever since you started eating healthier, you have gotten more picky with the food you eat, and now you refuse to eat some of the best foods known to man. I mean, you used to love going to Buffalo WIld Wings, but now you prefer to eat a salad. Salad has no flavor whatsoever so, stop listening to society telling you what's healthy and what isn’t. This might be a controversial topic for many including you, but you need to acknowledge the many benefits and flavors pineapple adds to pizza. First of all, we all know that pineapple is a fruit, and that's what gives it a bad image, but if you really like to eat healthy, why would you...

Dear happy person, Have you ever wondered what it feels like to be depressed or unhappy with life? You see, not everyone around you is happy with themselves or with life.. Instead of talking about how amazing your life is, try taking into consideration that not everyone has what you have and instead try talking to them, try to make them feel better. You as a happy person, obviously enjoy the company of others, but the sad people tend to be alone because they feel judged. Depression isn’t the best feeling in the world, it makes you feel like you’re alone. It makes you life tough to function and it won’t let you enjoy life the way others people do. People that go through depression don’t enjoy ice cream the way you do, they don’t get excited for a new music album that’s about to...

To whom it may concern: I would like to take a minute and tell you that life is not all about you. There ARE in fact OTHER PEOPLE on this planet that exist outside of your snapchat, Facebook, Instagram, twitter, or whatever else strikes your fancy. The way you walk around with your nose in a phone, oblivious to everything around is not only a disservice to those around you, but to yourself. Insulating yourself with like mined people, in like-minded communities, makes for sheep, cattle dumbed down masses or whatever you want to call them. How can you expand your perspective on life if you refuse to hear any perspective that contests or challenges your line of thinking? In good debate we should always be on the line of offensive, for if I am not pushing your belief system then how would...

To those who struggle, Every day we make decisions big and small about everything and everyone around us. Our lives are full of decisions and risks within those decisions. Those risks are something we have to take in order to move forward, they are a part of our everyday lives. while that is something a majority of us learn, there are still those who do not and maybe don’t even realize that they have and this is why I’m writing this letter, to incite change and change how you think of not only yourself or the people and things around you, but also how you can make decisions and what kind of impact those decisions have. In my class British literature, we were assigned a classic to read and from this book we were to find a connection with an issue. my book was Watership down and the...

Stop!! Just stop!! The secrets, the lies, the cover-ups and worst of all the denial... The blame game and finger pointing and complete refusal to accept responsibility... It's the Irish way. it's spanned back generations and though we have come this far, it would seem some things just won't change. Amid the media circus regarding the Tuam mother and baby home, people are losing their minds. They are all seemingly shocked and dumbfounded and cannot believe what's happened... I CALL BULLSHIT! This story of the poor babies buried on the grounds came out years ago, only to be brushed off and forgotten. People are going mad at the disgrace that is the Catholic Church, blaming them for every problem the country ever had. I ask you to stop and think about who is really to blame... and the...

"There is NO such thing as "transgender" it's a made up word. This is a Mental Illness. Period." "They're disgusting and they should be isolated" "Thats nasty. If my wife were in that bathroom, I would have kicked its ass for being a pervert." "You shouldn't arrest someone for killing a tranny, you should give them a medal" I realize these quotes will be difficult for some people to read. These are direct quotes from the comments section on Facebook and YouTube posts about transgender issues. The problem isn't that "some" people will find these quotes difficult, it's that "all" people won't. What would cause someone to say something so hateful, so vile, about another human being? Undoubtedly the...
