Afraid To Be Taken Care Of

While there are so many girls out there in the world that would give anything to have a guy in their life that pays for everything, that does everything for them; the thought of that terrifies me. I don’t want to ever have to be taken care of. I have always been very motivated and I feel a need to make something of myself. While at this time in my life, I may not have an exact answer as to what it is that I’m going to become, I have no doubt in my mind that things are going to turn out alright. I take one day at a time and while I’m not making as much money lately as I used to, I am positive that this is completely worth it.

I would never want to put the pressure on another person to take care of me and to support me. Sure, I may be going through a hard time, but it is on my mind every day that I really need to get on my computer and work and overall I’m very proud of myself. I think the thing that holds me back some of the time is that I’m afraid of not being able to take care of myself. I’m worried that I wouldn’t be able to take care of myself but the more that I think about it, I know that even if I was 100% alone.. had no friend, no family; that I could figure things out on my own.

How do you feel about people who are supported by someone else? I don’t see anything wrong with it if that’s what a person wants to do but I don’t think that’s a happy lifestyle. What happens when you grow old and realize you haven’t accomplished anything? (Btw, only YOU can determine whether you accomplished enough or not, everyone’s situation is different)

Love & Other Drugs (SPOILER ALERT)

Honestly, when I saw the previews and posters for this movie, I thought it was just going to be another one of those sappy love stories; which I love, but sometimes they can get old. In the beginning, I thought it was just all going to be about sex and the main character (Jamie) being a total player and not wanting to actually settle down and fall in love with a girl.

Well, the story took a much unexpected turn and everything was pretty hectic for a while. The movie takes you on this roller coaster ride of emotions that make you laugh and then cry, get angry and upset etc.

When you find out that the female main character (Maggie) is very ill, you start to wonder if Jamie is going to actually stay with her or not. It’s a really cute love story and a very true-to-life one. I really enjoyed how the characters were so real and it felt like this movie could be based on a true story. I couldn’t help but cry during much of the movie, because you really start to love Maggie and want her and Jamie to be together. Jamie goes out of his way, trying to do anything in his power to help Maggie’s medical condition. In time; however, Maggie feels that it is too much and she doesn’t want to bring Jamie into her hectic life. She realizes that him being with her isn’t going to be very easy and wants him to have the life he deserves.

I won’t spoil the ending, but you must see this movie. Us girls all need a good cry once in a while :p

Teens Having Sex Too Early

It really freaks me out when I look around and see how kids are acting these days. My younger brother knows things I didn’t know until I was way older than he is, my sister is acting in ways that I don’t think any virgin should act. What is up with kids growing up so fast? How is it that kids learn about sex so early? It really seems to me like there’s not much parents can do to stop the cycle, because if their kids have friends and go to school, they are going to learn all these things. I think what parents are failing to do is take the time to have those important talks with their children, letting them know all the risks involved in having sex, making sure they know how tough pregnancy is and how much having a child will change a person’s life.

There are so many kids that I see now that are just DYING to become pregnant. Sure, I watch a lot of shows like Steve Wilkos and Maury but it’s not only from that that I notice. Kids are just growing up so fast and thinking they are so mature and that they can handle anything, when they don’t even realize how much sex really does change your life.

I had sex before I was ready and honestly, it changed me a lot. It made me feel disgusting and like I gave my body to someone who didn’t deserve it. I have been with two people before my current boyfriend and I can’t even tell you how often I think back and regret the past. I would love to say I’ve only been with one person. That would be a wonderful feeling. Stupid peer pressure lol!
