+ || . LIFE . || +
Well, I wanted to start out with opinions about life, because it is something that I have constantly struggled with. Basically, life is tough. There are so many obstacles to overcome, each one being more difficult then the last. I think that the most important thing is to keep faith in God. Practically my whole life I have complained about having a horrible life and never having anything go right. Recently, I have realized that being pessimistic won't make anything better, and neither will complaining. This life I live, it belongs to God. He has a path for me, and as long as I trust him, I know things will work out in the end, knowing that he loves and cares so much about me.
+ || . FRIENDS . || +
"Friends are people who walk in, when the rest of the world walks out." This is one of my favorite quotes. Everyone's definition of a friend is different. To me, the most important characteristic of a friend is someone who you can laugh AND cry with. How can you call someone a friend that can't cheer you up when your down?? Or someone that can never relate when you're sad? Real friends will always be there for you, they won't run away when they don't want to listen.
+ || . GOD . || +
I don't really know what to say, because words can't really describe my relationship with God. He is my Savior, He's responsible for my salvation. If it weren't for Him, where would I be now? Although I have gone to church ever since I was young, I never really understood the true meaning of being Christian. It was more like just a social gathering. Although (I admit) I'm not a very good Christian, not attending church much, not praying much, not reading the bible, etc.. I know what God has done for me and continues to do for me. I have complete faith that he will guide me in everything I do, and will protect me.
+ || . PARENTS . || +
My parents have always seemed to me like antagonists, always telling me what I can and cannot do, putting restrictions on me, yelling at me. But when I think about it, I have not made parenting easy for them. Often times, I also yell at them, show disrespect, ignore their advice, and do many other things to make them upset. Parenting is not an easy job, and I have realized that. I am independent, but so are they. Parents are no longer the bad guys to me, but just people always watch over me, and want whats best for me (although I may not always agree).
