A life like mine
But others, a blessing
It’s certainly a lonely life
But a fulfilling one and the best
It’s my cross to bear
And I'll bear it gladly
Someone has to take a stand against evil
Why should it not be me? ~Within Temptation

Notes about my journal
~ I live a pretty difficult life, so I need to vent often to cope with it and get things off my chest. I don't want to deal with people who give me constant advice (unless if I ask for it), expecting me to become a perfect person overnight. I also don't want to be dealing with people who preach obsessively about positivity either. I may not be a positive ray of happy sunshine, but I do believe that everything will fall into place when it's meant to. I just have to pray, be patient and vent in the meantime. If you can't handle this, then my journal might not be for you to read. You've been warned.
~I'm all for people who are from foreign countries and I respect their culture, but I could only understand English writing. If your journal is written in a foreign language like Russian, please don't add me. I won't be able to understand it.
~Live Journal is my safe haven to dream, vent, and express myself. If I deal with any drama or judgmental behavior, you will be banned.
~This journal used to be open for everyone, but now it's friends only due to some issues in the past with ex friends. I will add you regardless if I see new names on my friends list.
Other than that, feel free to add me. It's been nice meeting you.
