people say i've changed so much.
well here's the truth; i grew up.
i stopped letting people push me
around. i learned that you cant
always be happy. i accepted reality.

disappointment is painful
As I say the words, I realize how true they are. and maybe that's the trick to getting through it, through life: realizing that everybody, including ourselves, is lugging around some kind of screwed-up baggage. Maybe we are put here to help each other carry the loads.

Dreams aren't meant to be understood any more than tragedies can be avoided. Life happens to us. The only certainty in all of it is that it just keeps happening.
I live in a world of people;
pretending to be something they're not.
But when I talk to you,
I'm the girl I want to be.
I've learned this past year. I've changed, I've grown. Maybe things do happen for a reason, maybe they don't. But no matter what - they still happen. That's what we need to remember. I learned to stop analyzing things, to just let them happen. And if I get hurt, or if something bad happens, then it happens. There's nothing I can do to change that. I've learned to go with my gut, and that it's okay to make mistakes. I've learned that love really is a great as they say it is. I've learned that your friends can't save you from your worst enemy: yourself. And most importantly, I've learned that today is all we have.
You can never tell what people are thinking and feeling unless they tell you, and usually they lie. you ask them, ‘Whats wrong?’ and they say ‘Nothing’. You accept this because it’s easier than digging for the truth. People smile when they want to cry, they laugh when they want to scream and shout. They pretend like nothing is wrong because they don’t want to face the truth. Things aren’t always rainbows and butterflies, sometimes you gotta scream and cry your anger and sadness to the world, because you can only hold it in for so long before something in you snaps. so when you want to cry, cry. When you want to scream, scream. Don’t hide behind fake smiles, it’s ok to not be alright
So I guess we are who we are for many reasons, and maybe we will never know most of them.

I feel more comfortable talking to strangers than people I know. I believe this is because chances are,
I’ll never see them ever again. And I feel like I can say anything I want. They don’t know my past or what I’ve done.
They can only judge me on who they are seeing right that second. I’m the person I am now, not then. People I know don’t see the difference.
