“All I want is for someone to tell me to stay.”

“I wish I didn’t have a butt, so people might notice my eyes first.”

“I have Faith in You. I Hope to see Your face. I Love You.”

“Complaining as adults is akin to a child throwing a tantrum because something isn’t going their way.”

“I almost dropped out of high school because my depression was so bad, I didn’t care to try. Joining the military, moving to this state and starting college here feel like I’ve been given a chance at life again.”
