Who are you?


What message are you giving yourself and others? Is it positive or negative?

  48. Venetia Says:

    I am just I am. Not good, not bad, not even indifferent. I have found that life is way to short to sweat the small stuff. There are far too many things that happen that I cannot change because they have happened I can only deal with the residual of the act or acts of what has happened. I say this because once something has happened, it is now in the past and the past cannot be changed. And we all have a past good bad and indifferent. I can only pick up the pieces and try to put them back together the best I can.
