I keep asking to have my old old heart run over.

I think I'm a pretty good guy. I love people, I care about people, I always try to act out of compassion for others, I will always offer my help, but I am on a bad streak. I am so fucking ready for the tide to turn. I have been getting beaten against the shore for a long time. I keep telling myself it has to get better soon. Then it keeps coming. I watch others who don't always act out of compassion and they seem to be up to their necks in the roses.

When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.
-Harriet Beecher Stowe
