So I just went through some of my way old stuff (angsty poems) and holy crap. Clearly I was taking it to a whole new level that didn't need to be done. No wonder my interpersonal relationships were so rocky. I feel as though the time I've spent after "the crappy years" has done well to show me there's more to life than stupid people (although there are still plenty of them to go around).
I kinda want to delete them, but I kinda don't. They are a big part of my past that defined me, and probably indirectly helped me to be the better person I am today.
Anyway, thanks to all of you who walked with me and supported me through the tough part of my life so many years go. I couldn't have done it without all of you.
