"Beauty is Self-Confidence applied to the face"

It has never occurred to me that I would be so frustrated beyond belief that I wish I could explode. I never thought I would get this annoyed at life and the things in it. Growing up, I never saw life as a burden or as a duffel bag packed with bowling balls that you have to carry everywhere with you. I never thought life would grow tiresome. I had always had this picture perfect idea of life. I always saw myself smiling and happy; never sad, stressed, angry, fatigued or disappointed. As the years passed my burden grew as innocence was lost. I wish I could go back to having the naïve mind of a child. I don’t want to know half the stuff I know now, I want to have an excuse for not knowing. The century I live in has brought to light new horrors and worries. Fear has set in, a disease upon us all.

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

How many times,I've felt this way, and it felt so strange. It's true, fear has set in this world. This is great. Thank you, for sharing this!
