I was never like this. My views on life, or what I see when I look around me. It was never like this. I am who i am because of the trials and tribulations i believe i was meant to undergo. When i thought i was by myself, i felt as though i was suffocating with no one to pull me up from what i thought i would never recover from. when i was younger i was never religious. i was raised in a christian home, but i never acquired the true faith or beliefs that my parents had.
