I realized that I should have not married early, hahaha. Our family is not financially stable and we have to live with my inlaws, well they are good but there are times that I don't wanna be nag my my mother in law. It kills me when that happens, sometimes I think that I want to go away, far away. I should have live alone with my daughter instead without marriage, LOL. But that's life and all I've got to do is accept it. I hope someday we will move out and get out of here and start our family's own life. And I am looking forward to that :)

lately, i've realized that the lifestyle led by everyone i know is a complete sham. i've learned that trends, as well as most movies, books, cars, houses and everything else by which average americans define their lives, are emotionless, mass-produced tools that businesses use to make money. in a decade, my companions won't be toting razr phones or watching 'family guy'. they'll be soldiers on a battlefield, fighting and dying for oil to preserve the easy, wasteful lives they once led. i've realized that i don't want to be like them, and before i get sucked into their routines, i want to learn about other ways of living that are unique, environmentally friendy, and effectively express at least some level of emotion. most people seem to have forgotten what life really is, and i don't want that to happen to me. (sorry i just went on a long rant) and in answer to your question of how to have peace... call me a cynic, but i don't think we can ever have complete peace in this world. most people have beliefs and opinions that are unique to them, and if you put two people with differing ideals together, they'll most likely argue or fight. put six billion people with differing ideals together, and you'll get wars. however, maybe the sight and knowledge of all this fighting will teach future generations to be more respectful of each other.

i realized that a long long time ago. and i also realized that the only person who will look out for you is you. lol its the way most of the world works. but when you get married and have kids, well then you look out for your family and yourself. People are self rightious and selfish. I usually dont bother with a whole lot of them. I talk to people but i keep most of them at a distance. i have one really good friend. she's my best friend. and i love her. but she lives too far away :/

See everyone in this world has a different identity and different personality and a different way of thinking. So you will always have people who like what you do i.e. they appreciate what you do and there would be people wo would think otherwise i.e. they will criticize you. Many times criticism helps you to improve but at the same time it would be really frustrating to get criticism every time. But it is part and parcel of life.
