I am both a positive and negative person. I find the good and the bad in people. I struggle every morning on deciding whether I'm going to have a good or bad day. I am impatient and I am hard headed. I overthink. I stay up at night contemplating over situations that are highly unlikely to take place. I see the world differently. I try to be compassionate and I try to be understanding, I try to live day by day and not worry so much about the future. I have loved and I have lost. I have succeeded and I have failed. I have gone down the bad road and I have taken a U-turn. I have my whole life ahead of me and many memories to make and share. I have been alive for about 18 years, but I have not really lived. Without God, Faith, Love, Hope, Compassion, Sincerity, Honesty, and Family, I don't know where I'd be. I am fond of Buddha's teachings and look up to His Holiness, The Dalai Lama.

You’re in love with him, and he’s in love with you, and it’s like a goddamn tragedy, because you look at him and see the stars, and he looks at you and sees the sun. And you both think the other is just looking at the ground.
Rae: “Well, because, if I eat unhealthy food, then people will think ‘Oh, look at that fat cow. No wonder she got to that size,’ and if I eat healthy food, then they think ‘Well, who’re you trying to kid, love? You didn’t get to that size by eating salads.’”
The fat experience in a nutshell. Bloody hell, My Mad Fat Diary is brilliant.
