Dear Diary

Dear Diary,
It seems as though everyone has gotten into the cyber world, proudly displaying their personal thoughts for the world to see. I think that’s really cool, but at the same time, I feel as though we are losing the more personal diary. I would love to read one of these, one that wasn’t “edited” so that people thought the person was “cooler” “smarter” “more fun” than they really are. Why can’t people be true to who they are? Why do we have to care so much about other people’s opinions? When we die, the only thing that will matter is what we have done with our life, not who we have pleased.
Isn’t it true than underneath all the designer clothes, pounds of makeup and facials, is the same lonely person as everyone else? A person who strives on the looks of others, who is insecure and hopes to be brilliant, who questions everything he or she does? Why do we hold up a perfect scale and try to hold ourselves up to it to see where we stand?
I feel as though Satan is everywhere around us, trying to poison us and it frightens me. You know what else scares me? I hate that I try to think I’m such a great Christian, when I know that’s not true. I hate that I always try to defend myself when I’m being given criticism, never allowing myself to take responsibility for my actions. There are many things that I find wrong with myself, and I don’t know if I can ever change that. I think we need to accept the negatives with the positives and just hope for the best. It’s all we can really do in the end anyway.
