“If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?” - RuPaul - - - - - - - - - - - “if by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people -- their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties -- someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.” - John F.

And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -


Hmmmm. Let's see. I guess I can start by telling you two beliefs of mine in the form of these two catchphrases: "It Happens" and "Karma". 

How did these come to be? 

Ever since I can remember I've always been the unpopular nerd. I was bullied and picked on everyday from elementary through high school which lead me into depression and thoughts of suicide. Around this time I also dealt with the notion of being gay which didn't make things better. Ultimately by learning to love myself for who I am, accepting the fact that bad things do happen; I fixed it, shrugged it off and moved on.  Hey, "It Happens." 

I came out to myself at the beginning of college and surprise, surprise, I'm no longer depressed. I met friends, best friends, and friends with benefits and had a great time. I tried dating two guys but that failed so I went back to just playing around and chatting with guys on the internet. This one guy wanted to talk to me so I did and we had a great conversation which of course lead to us meeting, greeting, and......well you know. 

Both of us thought that we would never see each other after the dreadful deed, but turns out what was a one night stand developed into a great friendship. The more we talked the closer we got and after that I passionately kissed him. I stared into his eyes and didn't want to ever leave him. I fell in love with this beautiful man. 

I'm very proud to say that we're still doing great together after 10 years. I can go right now, look into his eyes, and feel the very same way I first felt when I in fell in love with him. I consider him my life partner because there is no one else I'd rather spend the rest of my life with. 

You see, both of us, though it was worse for him, had rough times and we'd wonder why this is happening to us. He is a great and wonderful person and is the nicest guy you will ever meet. I also like to consider myself as being a nice guy too. Why do bad things happen to good people? The universe has to have balance and when one side either good or bad out weights the other, eventually it has to balance out. We suffered a lot, but through it all we always kept our kind personalities from becoming the very people that hurt us. I believe the universe balanced out because of this, and now life is great with each other. 

"Karma," what goes around, comes around. To this day I strongly believe that if you do good things, good things will come back to you, and visa versa. Sometimes it takes a little time to work out, but in the end it always comes through. 

I am extremely happy with life right now - it is so wonderful.  It's hard to believe that a few years ago I held out hope of ever being happy again. I'm actually at a point in my life where I'm the happiest I have ever been.
