The Tragedy of Truth

I’m not okay. There are two sides to everything: two sides to every story, night and day, inside and out… and even for me. See, there’s who I am, and then there’s who I want to be. On this blog, I’ve always preached to be yourself. Really, it’s what my blog is about. But I… Continue reading The Tragedy of Truth

Progress

There isn't much that feels better than moving forward. When I set out to do something and then do it, there's just a feeling I get that's incredibly intoxicating.

It wasn't that I had decided to listen to those little voices--it was just that I knew my life wasn't strictly confined to the dark topics I wrote about. And you… Continue reading When Life Gets Good

I’m Not A Good Person

I'm not a good person. If you think I am, then you're wrong. What you see is what I want you to see. The shy, soft-spoken, mild-mannered young man you think you know could blow away in the wind. He's a facade. Superficial. Empty. There's someone else behind that mask; a side to me I… Continue reading I’m Not A Good Person
