Ten Things I Wish I Could Say to Ten Different People
1) You are a good person but you keep making bad choices.

3) For someone who is so smart, you can be very, very stupid.
4) I am really worried about you.
5) You are an emotionally selfish bastard.
6) I have never seen someone so accomplished and with such potential have such low self-esteem.
7) I am glad that I no longer have anything to do with you.
8) Grow up, already.
9) You are not the center of universe.

Eight Ways to Win My Heart
1) Be present, and I mean be present emotionally, mentally, and physically.
