A PATH TO HAPPINESS & FULFILLMENT
This was written to help ANYONE find a Happier and more Fulfilling life. I wrote it especially for those of you who feel Depressed or Stuck in Life.
It is my hope that all of you can find a measure of happiness, contentment, and fulfillment in your lives, no matter what the circumstances of your lives are. It is my hope that you will be able to look in the mirror and see the true beauty of who you are, and love yourself.
I know this seems like a lot to read, but isn't happiness worth the effort? I believe that these steps can truly help you in a major way, as long as you actively choose to improve your life, and commit yourself to the process. Some people have plenty of Dopamine and Endorphins to keep them feeling good, motivated and riding high, but even these people can find there lives feeling empty and unfulfilled, and all of us will experience depression at some point in our lives.
Concerning my friend with OCDI'll never wake up the way you do,Concerning my friend with OCD1 month ago in Free Verse More Like This
whether in the middle of the night or first thing in the morning,
curling up in bed to hold your head because the thoughts are already twisting your mind like a hurricane
(Is the day going to make it worse?)
I'll never brood over the things you do,
your mind latching onto the very scenes that lacerate your skin and bleed you dry,
no matter how loudly you scream against it
(Shh, it just gets worse when you do that.)
I'll never dislike daydreaming the way you do,
because my dreams consist of gentle rocking seas,
while yours are filled with a constant struggle to escape the wave that's bound to paralyze your body
(What outlet will you choose this time?)
I'll never fully understand your illness,
No matter how many ways you explain it,
Or how hard you fight against it
(But I know you do, every day.)
I'll never know what you're going through,
but I'll smile the way you used to,
just in case you forgot.

My opinion matters,
Just like yours does.
It may be unpopular, but…
It is still my opinion.
Dad says my opinion will change,
though I should not let people forcibly change my views.
Isn’t that what you are trying to do, Dad?
Aren’t you telling what and how I should believe?
I will not compromise my beliefs for others.
I hope that this is understood.

It was now morning at the Kurosaki manor. But it was a special morning to wake up to,it was the morning after Ichigo submitted his love to Rukia. Rukia sighed as she woke up from her sleep. She looked at Ichigo,and sighed again. 'What happens if I get pregnant with Ichigo's child? Since he's the one I'm not supposed to marry. Oh Ichigo...' thought Rukia. She was really worried about this. "What's wrong with you Rukia? Worried about our relationship?" said Ichigo as he woke up. "Ichigo...Yeah I am worried about it." confessed Rukia. "Mostly about me getting pregnant with your child." "Rukia,you don't have to worry about that. No matter what happens,I will protect you and always love you. Especially that."

Stunning ivory eyes finally came into focus. They glistened as water balanced on the edge, threatening to pour out. He was occupied by something in the distance, something that was unaware of his presence lingering like a bad odor smell. The more he gazed at the girls beauty the more his mood darkened. He cursed himself at how much valuable time he wasted on her, just standing there, watching her from afar.
She was so lovely, with short lilac fur that looked as light as blossoms, amber orbs that almost matched his and the type of eyes that made him forget everything, including himself. And a delicate, but firm voice that sounded like a melody to his ears. Her voice alone caused his legs to wobble like jelly.
“Silver?” His head jerked instantly towards the source of calling, the sound of his own name wasn’t enough to awaken him from his daydreaming state. Silver frowned at pink hedgehog who approached.

I groaned quietly, and tried to sit up. Yet, my arms wouldnt seem to obey me when I wanted them to get out from behind my back, as if they were stuck at the wrists.
Then I tried moving my legs, which didnt help me at all either. They wouldnt come apart no matter how hard I tried. I looked down in the very dimness of light that I had with my eyes readjusting, and saw a rope tied tightly around my ankles, sticking them together.
My eyes widened immensely in shock and fear. That must mean my hands were roped together also!
I then took in where I seemed to be. It definitely didnt have very good lighting, which made it hard to find out where I was exactly. I felt a rough carpet underneath me, like when I had blacked out. My head moved back and bumped into something that soundedand feltlike metal. I yelped as I felt it come in contact with me, and I rolled over, onto my other arm.

She reached her down in her pocket and pulled a golden necklace with an oval-formed locket, with small diamonds around it and a special wavy pattern too, hanging from it with a matching golden colour as the chain.
It was a gift from him. Her friend. The psychokinetic male who seemed to haunt her mind. Every time he was around, she always felt the same very small jump in her ice cold rock heart. A weird feeling she wanted to figure out what was.
'Why is it so difficult to find out what I feel?' She thought as she stared down in her hands, stroking her fingers over the oval-shaped golden locket. Her mind was racing through every possible emotion but Blaze never knew how they felt and just passed them with no thoughts, no worries of them.

Sometimes being with her 2 brothers got on her nerves.
Sonic was a cocky, ego-head with a big mouth and even bigger appetite for the disgusting food called chili dogs, and Manic was a sarcastic, sneaky, ex-thief who still had some major issues to iron out. Like taking her hair dryer and hiding it from her.
That really cheesed her off.
She'd been raised in a luxurious household, and despite her slightly tomboyish nature, preferred things to always be in order, clean, and highly fashionable. A concept her 2 siblings had yet to grasp. Before she knew her brothers, she'd always wanted a sister.
She'd gotten two brothers.
Irony could be a jerk.
She heard a tap on her door. "Yo sis, can I invade for a sec?" It was Manic. Sonia groaned inwardly. "I guess " She said. Manic came in, about to ask her if she'd found her hair-dryer, but when he saw the look on her face he decided he didn't want to tease her.

The gunshot echoed as it impacted with the metal door, screaming as it tore metal instead of flesh.

A drip of what looked like petrol at first, splattered onto the foxes pure fluffy cheek. He didn’t dare to raise a hand to brush the liquid away because he feared in the back of his mind that he’d ruin something or put something out of place.
