  • Because I exist, therefore I am what I am. I did not ask to come into existence and neither did I ever request to come into existence here into this kind of an existence, reality, world or whatever you want to name it. Because that was entirely someone else's choice in which I absolutely had no control over. How I exist and what I would exist as was never on me, I never got to pick and choose whom or what I would exist as and is existing as.

    • I exist for the same reason. I am the way I am because of my nature and nurture.

    • In all technicality, you are completely right.

    • I am here because my parents had unprotected sex one time too much. Need I say more?

      Nevertheless I am here and that's it. What else can I say?

  • When I was 21, I was with a girl friend, who was very possessive about me. She used to get upset about me chatting with my friends etc..,. then we used to end up in fights and then she used to cry a lot. In the initial days I used to console her as the days passed couldn't take it and I used to shout on her and unintentionally made her cry a lot, I never used to feel how it went on her. One day the same thing happened to me and I felt how it would feel when you hurt someone. That is the day I have decided that I am not going to make anyone cry particularly girls. So, till now I haven't done anything which made any girl cry or ended up hurting. And what ever I do, I just think how it would influence others before doing it.

  • I believe losing my dad when I was 13 had a major effect on me. I believe my life would be different if my dad was still alive.
    Well to be honest I like the way my life is right now, yet I miss him.

  • Hummm... I'd say difficult time in elementary school. Teachers didn't seem to believe in me or like me. I had a high IQ but I didn't know it. Later on in life I squeezed 8 years of college into 6 and became a professional person. Someone who knew me in elementary school recently told me, "You really showed those teachers!"

  • I'm kinda like Robin Scherbatsky life - to prove that she can do it to her dad.
    i have a dad who have his bro like sorority from his all boys boarding school.
    it's really good to have a connection and strong bonds like that, but, the down size is, he don't know how to treat a lady/girl, so I always man up and do everything own my own, he don't trust me and always look down to my achievement since I was young (he more favor my brothers) so I work out my own way to prove he's wrong.

    so, that's make me independent and excel in my life/career is like something that I need to show to my dad. but we're okay now lolz

  • During my teen years, I use to judge people without getting to know them. When I was 19, I witnessed some people judging my older brother and I was hurt and was depressed. I realized what I was doing was wrong and I changed.

  • I'm still finding myself. I've changed a lot though, 2015 was very hard to me and 2016 was not bad but it wasn't good either. I'm just thankful to be alive and for the people in my life.
