***Pretty Ugly***

Marie from Flaxmere

I'm very ugly So don't try to convince me that I am a very beautiful person Because at the end of the day I hate myself in every single way And I'm not going to lie to myself by saying There is beauty inside of me that matters So rest assured I will remind myself That I am a … View moreI'm very ugly So don't try to convince me that I am a very beautiful person Because at the end of the day I hate myself in every single way And I'm not going to lie to myself by saying There is beauty inside of me that matters So rest assured I will remind myself That I am a worthless, terrible person And nothing you say will make me believe I still deserve love Because no matter what I am not good enough to be loved And I am in no position to believe that Beauty does exist within me Because whenever I look in the mirror I always think Am I as ugly as people say?

Move On!!!

Marie from Flaxmere

Eventually we'll forget the past, the reason we cried & who caused us pain. We will finally move on & the memories will slowly start to fade. It's time to move on & forget about those who forgot about us. We will realize that if they still wanted to be with us, they'd … View moreEventually we'll forget the past, the reason we cried & who caused us pain. We will finally move on & the memories will slowly start to fade. It's time to move on & forget about those who forgot about us. We will realize that if they still wanted to be with us, they'd still be here but deep down we know the truth. they won't come back, they've moved on with their life.

No magic switch

Trevor from Havelock North

Why is it that a lot of people think there is a switch that will turn off the virus when we go into lockdown 2? They seem to think that as soon as the rules are relaxed that they can't catch it and can start socialising again.

Sorry, the risk is exactly the same as it was the day before. … View more
Why is it that a lot of people think there is a switch that will turn off the virus when we go into lockdown 2? They seem to think that as soon as the rules are relaxed that they can't catch it and can start socialising again.

Sorry, the risk is exactly the same as it was the day before. THERE IS NO "ON/OFF" SWITCH.

I urge you all to stay within the rules, keep your distance, and keep washing your hands. If this gets away again we will be living in a third world economy, our way of life will likely never return. Not in our lifetimes anyway.

💐 Mother 💐

Marie from Flaxmere

She struggled to climb stairs, she got breathless quickly and even a simple task like putting her shoes on was a huge struggle for her. She suffered many sleepless nights while you kicked and squirmed inside of her and while you demanded that she scoffed junk at 3.a.m., she then went through EXCRUCIATING PAIN to bring you into this World. She became your Nurse, your Chef, your Maid, your Chauffeur, your Biggest Fan, your Teacher, your Agony Aunt and your Best Friend. She's Struggled for you, cried over you, fought for you, put herself second for you, hoped the best for you and has driven herself insane with worry for you but never has she asked for anything in Return because she Loves You and did it all on Love Alone! Most of us take our Mums for Granted but there are People who have Lost or have never even seen theirs. If you have a Loving Mother who did all of this for you, you are very lucky, never Devalue her Worth because Oneday, you'll wish you Hadn't 🌹🌹🌹🌹
