People are complex organisms. Human beings have free will, and they make their own choices. Some are good, some are bad, some are downright eeeveel, but they’re choices. I’m all for religion, worship in whatever form it comes in, faith to whatever deity or principal someone chooses. When one person or group’s specific moral leanings begin to encroach on the rights, beliefs or thoughts of others, I have a problem. People are free to choose what they believe in, and only when their actions contradict societal norms, then their society can sanction them accordingly.

I don’t mind pets. Feel free to have your dog, cat, fish, alligator or nine-metre snake. When your pet then decides to shit, vomit, piss, bite, sting, kill, eat or otherwise screw up another person’s life, maybe it’s time to consider doing what other lonely people do. Have a fucking baby.

Life is for living. The world is one big amusement park, and we need to learn to treat it like one. There are challenges, trials, but all leading to boundless joy and wonder. Don’t look for monsters in every closet and hoods around every corner. Live a little.
Read: don’t be afraid to try new things, new people.
Love exists. Just because someone hurt you before doesn’t mean the next person will fuck you over as well. You have to believe in the power of the human spirit; you have to believe in people. In feelings. Follow your heart – love will pass you by if you think all men are dogs and all women whores. Take a chance, your heart will thank you for it.
Read: go ahead, open yourself up.
People are fallible, and they make mistakes. A moment of stupidity does not a villain make. Learn to appreciate that and you’ll see people for who they are … simple creatures. Give them a chance.
Read: forgive, and you’ll be all the better for it.
That’s me, and those are my principles. If anything is ever said about me, let it be that I lived my life, loved my women and took my chances. Staying true to yourself is about the best any of us can ever do, and I think I’ve done that.
Just thought you should know.
