Personality: There are parts of me that are ever changing, but currently I would say I am a peacemaker (being raised in a Pacifist home will do that to you) whose learning to be more assertive. I'm quiet, shy, and awkward. I usually put the needs and feelings of other people ahead of my own. I have strong opinions on certain subjects but generally I'm not quick to anger. I am, however, very competitive and get angry when I'm loosing and mean when I'm winning (some people love it some people hate it). I'd love to be more into fashion and make up than I am but it's one of those things that just doesn't stick. I don't have the money for them nor do I generally feel like they're worth the energy. But maybe one day. I'd like to think I'm generally a warm person who is open minded and willing to learn/hear other perspectives. When determining truths I stick to facts. I don't tend to believe anything without facts. Therefore, I don't believe in God, spirits, ghosts, mythical beings, the "soul", angels, demons, ect.
About My Livejournal
I have had a livejournal for about 10 years and it has seen me through lots of change. It has been my therapist and my closest friend. I have talked about lots of sensitive subjects on my livejournal, some not appropriate for those under the age of 18. I talk about things going on in my life and things going on in the lives of my family members. Some of those things deal with self harm, suicide, mental illness, sex, and depression. I try to put a trigger warning ahead of sensitive subjects but I can't guarantee to filter out all triggering subjects.
I also use the livejournal for fun memes I find or my friends post. It's not all dark and glum, I promise. I always love reading and participating in some fun getting to know you activities. I also tend to rant about things I don't feel safe ranting about anywhere else. Usually it's stuff that happens on facebook. But sometimes it's just a reaction to a picture or news article I found. It should go without saying, but you're free to disagree with my opinions and politely voice that, but I'm not going to tolerate abuse/degrading/mean comments. I'm open to hear your perspectives but I won't do it while being insulted. I hold myself to this same code of conduct when approaching others who I disagree with.
Also, I had a daughter in October and a lot of my entries are about her or parenthood. I'm getting better at keeping the entries varied but if hearing about other people's kids isn't your thing it's probably best you keep moving along. I guarantee you'll be sick of hearing about her in no time. But if you love kids or hearing about motherhood then I'm your woman.
