1) to enable people to become more truthful with themselves.
2) to widen their perspective on themselves and the world around them.
3) to find clarity on how to proceed in the future while taking lessons from the past and creating something valuable to live for in the present.

im angry at my friend, she thinks she can just be mean whenever she wants. She thinks she can hurt me time nd again. She knows i like her but she doesnt know how much. I didnt ask to fall for her. She is just incredible. so i get angry and i get sad and get even angrier and im so mad i dont even want to forgive her for being so mean. So i try to think about anywhere else. And i try to take my mind off anything. and i try to just enjoy being by myself. im tired and im lonely but ill enjoy the peace and let go of the drama. So soon i enter into another stage in my life. happy i was never more than a friend. But its just me being stupid but then again i dont seem to get many breaks with women. Everyone seems to be right, im going to die alone. If i could find someone who could actually love me, who will spend time with me. who will always worry about me, who will stop by just because she wants to see me. someone who doesnt have to be doing anything but look at me and smile. But thats something i will never find, because i dont have the chance to search.
