|This is my new profile. I apologize to the moderator who gagged me and promise it won't happen again. I have decided to create a new, but similar account so that my friends will still be able to recognize me. I am sorry for every thing that went wrong. I hope people will give me a second chance.
I do not tolerate bullying or harassment of any kind as I have been bullied and made fun of. I'm always here for anyone who needs me. You can email me if you want. Everything you tell me will stay between us. I am trustworthy, sincere, accepting, and understanding. I am not judgmental and always try my best.
?Don?t worry about what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.? ~Howard Thurman
Real love is the love that sometimes arises after sensual pleasure: if it does, it is immortal; the other kind inevitably goes stale, for it lies in mere fantasy.
The strongest bonds in love last beyond the chasm of death. To love and be hurt is better to have never loved at all.
"I set you free because I love you. Because I love you, I locked myself up. Hoping for you to release me."
?Instead of complaining that the rose bush is full of thorns, be happy the thorn bush has roses.? ~Proverb
?Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.? ~Norman Cousins
?One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it?s worth watching.? ~Unknown
Sometimes people put up walls, not to keep others out, but to see who cares enough to break them down.- Unknown
"Meeting you was fate, becoming your friend was a choice, but falling in love with you was beyond my control."
?We are like the little branch that quivers during a storm, doubting our strength and forgetting we are the tree?deeply rooted to withstand all life?s upheavals.? ~Dodinsky
Can you remember who you were before the world told you who you should be?- Danielle LaPorte
Complaining is pointless. It doesn?t make things any better and it drains the complainer and everyone else around them.
Keep your friends close, but keep your enemies closer.
`Wanna kill yourself? Imagine this. You come home from school one day. You?ve had yet another horrible day. You?re just ready to give up. So you go to your room, close the door, and take out that suicide note you?ve written and rewritten over and over and over You take out those razor blades, and cut for the very last time. You grab that bottle of pills and take them all. Laying down, holding the letter to your chest, you close your eyes for the very last time. A few hours later, your little brother knocks on your door to come tell you dinners ready. You don?t answer, so he walks in. All he sees is you laying on your bed, so he thinks you?re asleep. He tells your mom this. Your mom goes to your room to wake you up. She notices something is odd. She grabs the paper in your hand and reads it. Sobbing, she tries to wake you up. She?s screaming your name. Your brother, so confused, runs to go tell Dad that ? Mommy is crying and sissy won?t wake up.? Your dad runs to your room. He looks at your mom, crying, holding the letter to her chest, sitting next to your lifeless body. It hits him, what?s going on, and he screams. He screams and throws something at the wall. And then, falling to his knees, he starts to cry. Your mom crawls over to him, and they sit there, holding each other, crying. The next day at school, there?s an announcement. The principal tells everyone about your suicide. It takes a few seconds for it to sink in, and once it does, everyone goes silent. Everyone blames themselves. Your teachers think they were too hard on you. Those mean popular girls, they think of all the things they?ve said to you. That boy that used to tease you and call you names, he can? t help but hate himself for never telling you how beautiful you really are. Your ex boyfriend, the one that you told everything to, that broke up with you.. He can?t handle it. He breaks down and starts crying, and runs out of the school. Your friends? They?re sobbing too, wondering how they could never see that anything was wrong, wishing they could have helped you before it was too late. And your best friend? She?s in shock. She can?t believe it. She what you were going through, but she never thought it would get that bad? Bad enough for you to end it. She can?t cry, she can?t feel anything. She stands up, walks out of the classroom, and just sinks to the floor. Shaking, screaming, but no tears coming out. It?s a few days later, at your funeral. The whole town came. Everyone knew you, that girl with the bright smile and bubbly personality. The one that was always there for them, the shoulder to cry on. Lots of people talk about all the good memories they had with you, there were a lot. Everyone?s crying, your little brother still doesn?t know you killed yourself, he?s too young. Your parents just said you died. It hurts him, a lot. You were his big sister, you were supposed to always be there for him. Your best friend, she stays strong through the entire service, but as soon as they start lowering your casket into the ground, she just loses it. She cries and cries and doesn?t stop for days. It?s two years later. The whole school talks to a counselor/therapist at least once a week. Your teachers all quit their job. Those mean girls have eating disorders now. That boy that used to tease you cuts himself. Your ex boyfriend doesn?t know how to love anymore and just sleeps around with girls. Your friends all go intodepression. Your best friend? She tried to kill herself. She didn?t succeed like you did, but she tried?your brother? He finally found out the truth about your death. He self harms, he cries at night, he does exactly what you did for years leading up to your suicide. Your parents? Their marriage fell apart. Your dad became a workaholic to distract himself from your death. Your mom got diagnosed with depression and just lays in bed all day. People care. You may not think so, but they do. Your choices don?t just effect you. They effect everyone. Don?t end your life, you have so much to live for. Things can?t get better if you give up. I?m here for absolutely anyone that needs to talk, no matter who you are. Even if we?ve NEVER talked before, I?m here for you. Copy and paste this as your status to show people there are people out there that care
The boy you punched in the hall today. Committed suicide a few minutes ago. That girl you called a slut in class today. She's a virgin. The boy you called lame. He has to work every night to support his family. That girl you pushed down the other day. She's already being abused at home. That girl you called fat. She's starving herself. The old man you made fun of cause of the ugly scars. He fought for our country. The boy you made fun of for crying. His mother is dying. You think you know them. Guess what? You don't! Re-post if you are against bullying. I bet 99% of you won't, but repost this if you're that 1% that has a heart.
I have been a wiccan since I was 9. I look forward to meeting friends on spellsofmagic. Determined, open-minded, and sensitive best describe me. I am very mysterious, too. My family is mostly material-minded, but I was born with magick and have been using it since. I love to write. It's really hard to fit in a world when I'm different. All my life, people have been mocking me and telling me I cannot do magick; I must fit in. I am kind to everyone because I know how easily feelings can be hurt. I started using mostly magick when I was 11. What I mean by my family being material-minded is that they have never experienced the thrills of magick because they have not been aware or understand the world. No matter how hard they try, inner peace always escapes them because of all the doubts and fear they have. I enjoy the bands: Linkin Park, Three Doors Down, Three Days Grace and Daughtry. I listen to death metal, hard rock, alternative, new age and classical. My favorite colors are black, purple, green, blue, and red. I enjoy and am talented at astrology, precognitions, premonitions, and empathy. My aura is green. Meaning: I will search the ends of the world for understanding and I will mostly find it. I'm a healer. I love sports esp. cross country and track, field hockey( occasionally play ice hockey), lacrosse, and soccer. Element: Water
Water element signs put you closely in touch with your feelings, and in tune with the nuances and subtleties in your environment that others won't even notice. You approach life and understand it through your emotions, and you're really at your best when you "play your hunches." You don't intellectualize about things; you respond exactly how you feel. Favorite season: all, mostly fall because of colorful leaves, crisp air, and Samhain
*BRAVE ISNT GOING UP ON STAGE AND STRIPPING!
*BRAVE IS NOT SAYING A SPEECH OR DUMPING YOUR BOYFRIEND!
*BRAVE IS GOING TO SCHOOL ON MUFTI DAY AND NOT FOR A SECOND CARE WHAT THE WORLD AROUND YOU IS SAYING ABOUT YOUR CLOTHES.
*ITS LISTENING TO YOUR OWN MUSIC AND BEING PROUD OF IT!
*ITS GOING THROUGH EVERY DAY WITH THE THINGS PEOPLE SAY TO YOUR FACE AND BEHIND YOUR BACK AND YOU STILL KEEP QUIET.
*ITS KNOWING WHAT YOUR ''FRIENDS'' ARE SAYING ABOUT YOU AND STILL CALLING THEM YOUR FRIENDS!
*BRAVE IS KNOWING THAT TOMOROW ISNT A BRIGHT AND HAPPY FUTURE ITS ANOTHER DAY OF COMPLAINING AND DODGING RUMORS! KEEP ON LAUGHING.
If u agree please repost
If you truly believe, you can manifest and create steps toward making it reality. Sometimes I think I'm on heightened awareness as those words seem wiser beyond my knowledge.
Is it just me or does energy influence everything in this world and me when I think about it?
If you respect the abused and raped copy this~
Hi,My name is Ally,
I am 15,
I screamed and screamed,
Yet know one heard me.
Hi,My name is Ally,
I am 16,
I have a 1 year old baby.
People call me slut,
And other bad names,
Hi,My name is Ally
And I was raped.
Don't go with always follow the crowd, follow your intuition and uniqueness, be yourself.
type 5- investigator: scientific esp. with sixth sense, cannot easily express emotions (unlike 4s), reluctant to ask for help, to cover sensitivity, fives revel in intelligence or indifference, fear being overwhelmed fives that have four wings sometimes can let their emotions show, but rarely are open, they distance themselves from others b/c they are not comfortable with their social skills, but make loyal friends, fives need to have a sense of belonging much like fours
type 4 individualist: may feel unappreciated and misunderstood, seeks to make the world a better place, dramatic, wants to find meaning in life, withdraw from world if becomes harsh or cruel, can be somewhat temperamental, can have thoughts of shame or being deeply flawed, when depressed may often fantasize about a savior to bring them out of their unhappiness
Roots of Violence:
Ignorance leads to fear
Fear brings anger
Anger brings hatred
Hatred leads to war.
Forgive and free yourself from regrets, seek redemption from your guilts and rise from the ashes to love again.
The lotus floats in the muddy water, but still stays afloat and maintains it's beauty- Hindu proverb
Believe nothing you hear and only half of what you see.
Live life detached from the illusions of anger, desire and ignorance and you will achieve great things.
I hear the words the circle say
So what they're done, they don't matter anyway.
Speak up rather than suffer!
Better to be hated for who you are, than be loved for something you're not. There are people in this world who see pagans and wiccans as Satanists. I love my spirituality, although my parents and family don't.
True beauty comes from the inside and it is your character that defines who you are, not the outfits that seem to be in style. You are pretty if you are healthy, have good self-esteem, and just be yourself wearing casual.
Judge me too much or too harshly and I will break and fall. Judge me too little and I will fill with pride. Judge me just right and I will look at myself and see my mistakes and move forward.
"We avoid risk in life so we can make it safely to death."
Death is not the worst that can happen to men.
We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.
The most selfish 1 letter word - I - avoid it.

My name is Chris
I am three,
My eyes are swollen
I cannot see,
I must be stupid
I must be bad,
What else could have made
My daddy so mad?
I wish I were better
I wish I weren't ugly,
Then maybe my mommy
Would still want to hug me.
I can?t do a wrong
I can?t speak at all
Or else I?m locked up
All day long.
When I?m awake I?m all alone
The house is dark
My folks aren't home.
When my mommy does come home
I'll try and be nice,
So maybe I?ll just get
One whipping tonight.
I just heard a car
My daddy is back
From Charlie?s bar.
I hear him curse
My name is called
I press myself
Against the wall.
I try to hide
From his evil eyes
I?m so afraid now
I'm starting to cry.
He finds me weeping
Calls me ugly words,
He says it?s my fault
He suffers at work.
He slaps and hits me
And yells at me more,
I finally get free
And run to the door.
He?s already locked it
And I start to bawl,
He takes me and throws me
Against the hard wall
I fall to the floor
With my bones nearly broken,
And my daddy continues
With more bad words spoken,
''I?m sorry!? I scream"
But it?s now much too late.
His face has been twisted
Into an unimaginable shape.
The hurt and the pain
Again and again
Oh please God, have mercy!
Oh please let it end!
And he finally stops
And heads for the door
While I lay there motionless
Sprawled on the floor.
My name is Chris
I am three,
Tonight my daddy
Post if your against child abuse
Stop leaving and you will arrive
Stop searching and you will see
Stop running away and you will be found.
- Lao Tzu
Life is like a lemon- bitter and sweet intertwined. Out of every tragedy comes beauty.
It's never too late to shoot for the stars, regardless of who you are. Believe in youself and do whatever it takes.
You're never too old to do something you love.

If God Is Omnipotent
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God? ? Epicurus, Greek philosopher (341 BCE ? 270 BCE)

Many people say that people like us are a disgrace to the human race, that we are in the wrong, they say what we do is against the bible, well think about it the bible has been rewritten to fit all the religions, its like gay people back then nobody new what gay meant nor did they know what homosexual mean, I am sorry but the bible has been rewritten it makes no real remark. So I say the powers we have are from the universe (your god) and if he or she didn't want us to have it then he or she wouldn't never let us be able to use it.

1 of every 10 people born is gay. That means 1 of every 10 people is instantly put down, given bad labels, left alone, put in a minority and so much more.. all for something they didn't ask for. Many gay teens are committing suicide as a way of escaping. If you want to tell them life will get better and you respect them for who they ...are, put this on your profile, most of you won't, but let's see the 5% of you who will.
The girl you just called fat.. She's overdosing on diet pills. The girl you just called ugly.. She spends hours putting makeup on hoping people will like her. The boy you just tripped.. He is abused enough at home. See that man with the ugly scars.. He fought for his country. That guy you just made fun of for crying.. His mother is dying. Put this as you're status if you're against bullying. I bet 95% of you wont re-post, but I'm sure the people with a heart and backbone will!
Girl: Do you like me?
Girl: Do you want me?
Girl: If I left would you cry?
Girl: Would you live for me?
Girl: Do I ever cross your mind?
Girl: Would you do anything for me?
Girl: Which would you pick, me or your life?
Boy: My life.
Hearing this, the girl turns and starts running away with tears. The boy chases after her and stops her.
You don?t cross my mind because you are always on my mind.
I don?t like you because I love you.
I don?t want you because I need you.
If you left I would die, not cry.
I wouldn't live for you because I would die for you.
I wouldn't do anything for you because I would do everything for you.
But I would still pick my life because you are my life.

I don't care if you're gay or straight, everybody needs love.
I don't care if you're diseased with an incurable sickness, everybody deserves a chance.
I don't care if you're ugly or pretty, everybody has flaws.
I don't care if you're black or white, everybody has the same capabilities.
I don't care if you're weird, everybody needs to change.
I don't care if you're rich or poor, everybody needs warmth.
I don't care if you're different, everybody is.

90% of teens/preteens would brakedown if Justin Beiber was about to jump off a 15 story building 9% of them would grab a chair and some popcorn and scream JUMP!! JUMP!! JUMP!!. 1% of them would run up and push him off the building and say " Sorry you took too long!" I would be part of the 1%!
the guy you threatend, killed himself.

What is your Spirit Animal?
Your Result: The Wolf
resultYou are the Wolf! You are strong, fast and rely heavily on your pack; though sometimes you tend to be a loner, they are your true comfort. You care deeply about them and would stand and fight for them. Also, you are a "go-with-the-flow" kind of person who doesn't really throw a fit when things are always changing. On the Negative side of things, you are prone to worry and anxiety and are often viewed as impractical because of your artistic thinking. Try to steer clear of shyness and inactivity! Your color is Blue/Green for calmness and understanding.
You Scored as Earth

When I was extremely depressed, falling, drowning deep down, so cold, and empty, I wrote a list.
5,000* Ways to Love Life *Not really, they are just hidden virtues and the number is just a random number representing the millions of reasons. Everyone has different reasons, but I chose the general ones that apply to anyone.*
1. Laugh with friends. (You're not alone. Someone cares.)
2. Loving and supportive family. (65% of the time plus unconditional love.)
3. Seeing the sun and moon. (Live to see the sunrise and set as well as the moon.)
4. Feeling the coolness of the wind on your face whipping your hair back from your head.
5. Enjoying the beauty of nature.
6. Knowledge and learning
7. Compassion, Acceptance, and Understanding
8. Knowing tomorrow brings a new day and surprises.
9. Things turn for the worse before getting better.
10. Hope, strength
11. There's so much to live for.
12. Life is too short. Live it to the fullest.
13. True beauty lies within.
14. Time is unlimited. Enjoy yourself.
16. Life is the best gift.
17. You can do so much. Take a chance. Dream and reach for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land amongst the stars.
18. Try new things.
19. Finding true love.
20. Seeing yourself in others shoes.
21. Needless complaints are useless and should be avoided.
22. See the jar half full.
23. Be an empath, they understand themselves and accept others no matter what.
24. Love yourself. Who cares what others think?
25. Love your enemies. Love only weakens their hatred. You don't have to be on good terms with everyone, but be mindful of the things you do and the words you speak because they can hurt someone. Wounds take months to heal. Scars fade, but memories linger for years on end. Be respectful!
26. Revenge should be well-thought out and reviewed evermost thoroughly. It is never right to intentionally hurt someone unless it's in defense, protection, or during times of great need. Vengeance should depend on the severity of the infraction committed.
27. Trust, understand, know and accept yourself first, then can you only apply it to others and the world.
28. If you fear betrayal, keep yourself hidden, mysterious, and sneaky dwelling in the dark, unknown and foreboding to those who are blind and weak, too weak to dare and accept challenges until you meet someone you feel you can actually open up to.
29. Challenge your limits; limit your challenges.
30. Dream and achieve goals
31. Use mindful imagination and thoughtful thinking.
32. "It is better to risk failure than to go through life never trying"~ Theodore Roosevelt.
33. Celebrate and acknowledge all that you can do.
34. Learn from your mistakes.
35. Be grateful. Take another look around at the world. Open your eyes. See it again, differently.
36. Relax. Meditate. How can you concentrate/focus when you are so stressed?
37. The best works of art come when you let your mind drift and yourself be happy.
38. "Just because something is difficult, doesn't mean that you shouldn't try, it just means you should try harder."~ Anonymous.
39. Sometimes you have to see and experience depressed darkness in order to understand the true beauty of light and life.
40. Darkness is calm, protective, mysterious. Don't be afraid of the unknown.
41. Great things can happen! Embrace the unknown. Go out there! Great things can only happen when one person dared to go forward and try. Let that person be you!
42. If you wish to travel, travel light, take off your fears, let go of your unforgiveness, pain and sorrow and soar into the unknown freely.~ rephrased Cesar Pavez
43. Everyone has the potential to achieve great things!
44. Be there for anyone who needs it.
45. Stand up for what you believe in.
46. "It is better to be hurt by the truth than gain satisfaction from the lies." ~ David Allan.
47. A person who realizes, acknowledges, accepts, and understands his/her ignorance discovers true wisdom."~ Plato
48. "Seek knowledge not only in books and school, but also through the teacher of experience as well as the wonders of observations about the natural world."~ paraphrased Scott Cunningham
49. Life is a labyrinth. Enjoy the journey and know that there are no dead ends in a maze. Even if your path has twists and turns and obstacles ahead, move forward with perseverance and you will navigate your way.

I wrote this in a journal, and didn't look at it until now. I revised the grammatical errors, although there may still be some. I like the new version better. What do you think? You can give me feedback. Through criticism we all learn. Thanks!
Anthroposophy- develop perceptive imagination through creativeness, inspiration, and intuition from a form of thinking without sensory avail.
Doubt yourself and you doubt everything you see. Judge yourself and you see judges everywhere. But if you listen to the sound of your own voice, you can rise above doubt and judgment. And you can see forever.
Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs. Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
If you as parents cut corners, your children will too. If you lie, they will too. If you spend all your money on yourselves and tithe no portion of it for charities, colleges, churches, synagogues, and civic causes, your children won't either. And if parents snicker at racial and gender jokes, another generation will pass on the poison adults still have not had the courage to snuff out.
Marian Wright Edelman
If we judge others, it is because we are judging something in ourselves of which we are unaware.
John A. Sandford
We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.
Fear is a natural reaction to moving closer to the truth.
I love you
Not only for what you are
But for what I am
When I am with you
Genius is essentially creative; it bears the stamp of the individual who possesses it.
Madame de Stael
Six essential qualities that are the key to success: Sincerity, personal integrity, humility, courtesy, wisdom, charity.
It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes short again and again, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause, who at best knows achievement and who at the worst if he fails at least fails while daring greatly so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.

Pleasure without conscience,

Commerce without morality,

Worship without sacrifice,
Politics without principles.

Three Poisons: Buddhist Teacher
Resistance to oppression is often based on a love that leads us to value ourselves, and leads us to hope for more than the established cultural system is willing to grant ... such love is far more energizing than guilt, duty, or self-sacrifice. Love for others leads us to accept accountability (in contrast to feeling guilt) and motivates our search for ways to end our complicity with structures of oppression. Solidarity does not require self-sacrifice, but an enlargement of the self to include community with others.
The innermost meaning of sacrifice is the annihilation of the finite just because it is finite. In order to demonstrate that this is the only purpose, the most noble and beautiful must be chosen; above all, man, the fulfillment of the earth. Human sacrifices are the most natural sacrifices. Man, however, is more than the fulfillment of the earth; he is reasonable, and reason is free and nothing but an eternal self-determination toward the infinite. Thus man can sacrifice only himself, and that is what he does in the omnipresent sanctissimum of which the masses are not aware. All artists are self-sacrificing human beings, and to become an artist is nothing but to devote oneself to the subterranean gods. The meaning of divine creation is primarily revealed in the enthusiasm of annihilation. Only in the throes of death is the spark of eternal life ignited.
Friedrich Von Schlegel
"It is better to risk failure than to go through life not trying."~ paraphrased from Theodore Roosevelt
"Take care of one another. Be gentle, be compassionate. Be open to letting someone in when it is you who is faltering. Lend your hand. We need it. The world needs it."
"Love, accept, understand and respect yourself first, only then can you show compassion to others and understand the world."
"A person who discovers, realizes, acknowledges, and accepts his/her ignorance finds true wisdom." ~paraphrased from Plato
"It is better to be hurt by the truth than to gain satisfaction from the lies." ~ David Allan
