Anonymous asked: you told me to kill myself in high school. i will never be able to take you seriously and can't help but to think you're being incredibly fake. i just hope you know now how wrong and mean that was, if you are in fact genuine now. much love though, have a nice life. (seriously)
To be completely honest, I don’t recall saying anything like that, but I don’t doubt for a second that I didn’t say that. I was an awful teenager and I had a lot to learn about life and about people. I had a lot of things built up inside me and I realize now that I took it out on other people when the entire time, I should have been focusing on myself and the things that I needed to make right. High school was an incredibly long time ago for me. People grow, and people change. With that being said, I am incredibly sorry for the awful things I have said to you and I pray you forgive me for the hurt I have caused you.
Anonymous asked: What do you usually eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner? I'd love to give it a try in the future and I'm curious about it.
My girlfriend typically makes me oatmeal with fresh berries and fruits for breakfast. Or I’ll have natural oats as cereal with almond milk. Lunch and dinner is always different. I practically eat everything non-vegans do, but the meat is replaced with vegan meats and tofu. I like a lot of pasta dishes. A lot of Thai and Indian dishes are vegan because of their culture. Vegetables, fruits, beans, and rice are a vegan’s best friend. Google starter plans to becoming vegan if you are really interested in it. It’s not as hard as people think it is :) I hope you give it a try
Anonymous asked: Why are you a vegan?
For my health, for my animal friends, and for the environment. There’s no reason in my life for me to have another lifestyle
Anonymous asked: What do you do for a living?
I currently work in street wear distribution since I left the music industry. However, I am branching into ministry and world mission work this year
You feel depressed, sad, unstable - so you go to a doctor and he prescribes you with medication that numbs your feelings and tells you that you have a chemical imbalance in your brain.
Then you start to rely on the medication - which, with every prescription, makes the doctors and pharmaceutical companies richer while you are still sitting there depressed with a slightly numb mind thinking that it is as good as you are ever going to get.
You then label yourself with someone who has “depression” so you are telling yourself constantly that you have a medical condition that makes you unhappy and that becomes your safety blanket because someone with a degree told you so.
This is not true. You aren’t born with depression. You HAVE depression because of underlying emotions that are buried deep inside of you. The only way to fix the way you feel is to deal with it and find out why you hold such darkness within you. Not take a pill and convince yourself that you will be sad forever.
If you are telling yourself “I’m depressed” every day, you will get more depressed. Like attracts like with all things in life. It is the law of attraction.
All synthetic drugs do is cover up the problem, not fix it.
You are not depression. It doesn’t control you. You have emotional pain or trauma inside of you that can be dealt with and you can live a life that is beyond what you even imagined possible.
You just need to release the emotional issues in the right way, not cover them up.
There are beautiful things in life, and you are one of them.
When things fall apart, consider the possibility that life knocked it down on purpose. Not to bully you, or to punish you, but to prompt you to build something that better suits your personality and your purpose. Sometimes things fall apart so better things can fall together. Be still. Let the water still.
You don’t know anyone at the party, so you don’t want to go. You don’t like cottage cheese, so you haven’t eaten it in years. This is your choice, of course, but don’t kid yourself: it’s also the flinch.
Your personality is not set in stone. You may think a morning coffee is the most enjoyable thing in the world, but it’s really just a habit. Thirty days without it, and you would be fine. You think you have a soul mate, but in fact you could have had any number of spouses. You would have evolved differently, but been just as happy.
You can change what you want about yourself at any time. You see yourself as someone who can’t write or play an instrument, who gives in to temptation or makes bad decisions, but that’s really not you. It’s not ingrained. It’s not your personality. Your personality is something else, something deeper than just preferences, and these details on the surface, you can change anytime you like.
If it is useful to do so, you must abandon your identity and start again. Sometimes, it’s the only way.
Set fire to your old self. It’s not needed here. It’s too busy shopping, gossiping about others, and watching days go by and asking why you haven’t gotten as far as you’d like. This old self will die and be forgotten by all but family, and replaced by someone who makes a difference.
Your new self is not like that. Your new self is the Great Chicago Fire—overwhelming, overpowering, and destroying everything that isn’t necessary.
What are you waiting for?….
I’ve began to understand that suffering and disappointments are there not to cause distress to us or deprive us of our dignity, but to mature us and transfigure us
Sticks and stones may break your bones, but words will always kill you. It’s easy to forget how fragile we are as people. Oftentimes, we rush into words we do not mean and hurt those we do not intend. It’s in those times we must be mindful of of the seed we plant in others. What you feed your life becomes the fruit that you bear. Feed your life with compassion and you will bear love; Feed your life with anger and you will bear pain. Hearts matter. People matter. We’re all in this life together, so next time you think about hurting another or breaking another, be mindful of the seed you plant. This world needs more lives filled of life.
I have learned more things about myself this past year than I have ever learned collectively throughout my entire life. I have come to many realizations and I feel like I have been awakened. My purpose in this world is slowly revealed to me day by day, and it is a matter of embracing what I am becoming and utilizing the gifts I have been given. One of these self-realizations about myself is the way my heart works. I have come to realize that I am drawn to people not by their looks or their achievements or their popularity, but rather by the condition of their heart. I have learned that my heart is drawn to those who have battles. Those who have scars that are longing to be healed if someone gives them a chance. I have come to learn that my heart is far more powerful and far more capable of love than I have ever imagined. They say that love can conquer all things; And this, I fully believe in. Love is a beautiful concept. I can transform any darkness into light. It has the capability of transforming people. I mean, we’re all monsters in our own way…right? We’re all just longing for that one person to see the good in us.
I believe that I have been gifted with a special sight. This special sight allows me to see past the scars, the hurt, the grieve, the pain, the past, and the struggles that people contain within themselves; And rather, this special sight allows me to see the beautiful side of people. It allows me to see the true condition of their heart. I have learned about myself that I have an exceptional gift of sympathy and compassion. I have been blessed the ability to connect with people in a way that most others cannot.
As of now, I am unsure of what the purpose of this gift is. But as each and every day of this year passes by, I pray that I am able to use it for what it is worth.
Remember to love people for who they are; for you cannot judge them based on their past mistakes or their scars, for you have your own as well. Remember to feel real. We are all monsters waiting to transform.
Anonymous asked: You have inspired me to better myself as a person. To treat others with the respect and love that they deserve, and most importantly to never take for granted the friends and family that are apart of my life. Take pride in knowing you can have that effect on someone on the other side of the world. Happy holidays Logan.
I am so thankful to know that my life has had a positive impact and influence on your life. Merry Christmas to you
