An Insight To Angel


About Angel

New Zealand born, this kiwi chick took flight to live in the great land down under in Queensland Australia in 1988.

I am clumsy at times not known for my tact and or grace, straight to the point, and somewhat impatient, I have come to accept that what is in this life simply is.

Far from religious, I do not believe in a divine god per say that will come down and save the world, although I accept each to their own when it comes to their views and beliefs of what religion is or should be.

I consider myself to be my own worst critic as I tend to strive for best, and have a tendency to push myself physically and emotionally beyond my limits.

Still naive at times, still hoping to see the good rather than the bad in people, this has not been one of the qualities that I can say I am fond of, as it has come to burn me time after time over the years.

I am a strong believer in Karma, as I do believe in what we put out is what we do get in return, good bad or indifferent.

With a tendency to stand my ground when it comes to opinions, as we all have one, there is no right nor wrong, it is a perspective, a view-point on how we view a subject.

Zero tolerance for others who are self-riotous, I have no interest in people who claim to have never done any wrong in their lives, and who judge others, prior to walking in those they cast judgement upon’s shoes.

I am just your average girl who is trying to make my way through life as it is.

I am a mother, lover, friend, partner, co-worker, manager, coach, and referee, a Jill of all trades.

A firm believer that ‘ignorance is not bliss’ nor is ‘ignorance’ and excuse to be an arsehole in the world we live in today, those who continue to use the ‘ignorance is bliss’ rule are plainly arrogant and uneducated.

I love the water, beach surf and sand, the water is where I seem to find myself when I need to take 5 mins out of life’s hectic cycle.

I figure that each to their own, as it takes all kinds of people to make the world go round.

I believe that life is not learnt out of a text-book, and often wonder why we teach our lessons from one to our growing generations.

Although I can be a surprising wealth of knowledge I find it amazing how a person can actually no so much about nothing, yet be a master of the topic.

I am that girl who cuts her jeans into shorts because she got hot, am not one to enjoy shopping, in fact I hate the entire nightmare of going shopping and it has me  fkd how so many chicks say ‘lets make a day of it’ and love bouncing from shop to shop looking at things that are well pointless.

    Wow, I’m quite impressed by your strength and vocalism. Very cool angel picture! I am guessing that is you. I don’t know if they use the word “fiesty” downunder but that would describe you in my end of the world. I will follow along your blog to gain strength and fearlessness. I could use some of that which you possess!

  4. Angel O'Fire says:

    Yes that would be me, and thank you for your comment, although ‘feisty’ is a tamer way of describing an often over opinionated and always vocal Angel, I guess that’s just part of who I am, I believe in fairness and people being treated as people not mere number’s. Which is what led me to gaining the formal education that life had taught me first hand.
    Although I consider myself a realist rather than on optimistic person, I also believe that within our world people need to have access to the right tools in which they will gain the right information regarding things like mental illness, and mental health, I have also come to the conclusion that no matter how loud I may yell or shout, without the backing and support of those within our governments across the world, your voice will quickly be silenced, and you will discover the hard way, that to make a change, sometimes you have to become your own advocate, in order to help those along side you within the greater community to get the assistance directed in the manner that it should be directed.
    One of many joy’s within my world.

    Have you seen this book? The cover looks terrible!! Here’s the link and description. I’m gonna ask around.

    Based on former FBI Special Agent Joe Navarro’s experience as a criminal profiler and behavior specialist, “How to Spot a Borderline Personality”, provides the average person the tools necessary for identifying and assessing individuals who suffer from Borderline Personality Disorder. This is a must read for anyone who wants to “protect” themselves, their children, or their loved ones from such a personality.

    This short practical guide and checklist includes the 100 behaviors that are closely associated with this prevalent disorder. It is easy to use and intended for the average layperson: you truly don’t have to be a psychiatrist to use this.

    This short booklet will give you insight into this disorder by examining behaviors that may not be recognizable to you at first but have proven over time to be part of the Borderline Personality. Practical, fast, easy to read and simple to understand, this guide sheds light on a disorder that afflicts many with serious consequences for the rest of us.

  6. Angel, thanks for following my blog, i will also be following yours!

    The mall is filled with crap one doesn’t need. Once you buy this unneeded item you no longer have the money that could have been allocated to something you will need. It’s sort of a brainwashing scam designed to keep the public poor and the corporations fat.

  14. Mandi says:

    On of my friends just commented saying I MANIPULATED the system. (we’re good friends who disagree about stuff ALL the time. We’ll be good) She must not have ANY idea what saying the word manipulation means to someone with BPD, even though she’s researched it. You don’t have to agree with me regarding what it was about, I don’t mind. But if you get a few minutes will you comment on how you feel about the word manipulation? You can even ream me after that if you disagree with the rest :)

    I don’t think you manipulated the system, I think that people tend to use words in the wrong context at times, which throws the whole balance right off course, I think that you have done well honey to come so very far, and should remain focussed on your goals, regardless of who thinks what. Manipulation is something that is carefully thought out the meaning of the actual word is: behaviour that influences someone or controls something in a clever or dishonest way 2: the process of skilfully handling, controlling, or using something 3:to negotiate, control, or influence (something or someone) cleverly, skilfully, or deviously
    Mandi my thought’s are you did none of the above, you are not in the wrong, and those who think you are, that is their thoughts and opinions and they can think what they will
    Stay strong honey
    ((hugs))

    Thank you! I know those of you who have been at this a lot longer than I have know about the whole “manipulation” thing. I just feel like people use it because it’s mentioned in the DSM-IV. I will admit that I can manipulate, but I don’t feel that it’s in the way that so many people think. I have seen this Dr. since December and could have asked him for this medication a lot of times and I didn’t, and I wanted to. But I’m far enough out now that I when he mentioned it to me I grabbed onto it! I LOVE this medication! I’ll only have it for a few months, but that’s better than nothing. I’ve been off it since Oct last year, some really bad stuff happened. The doctors said I had a bad “meth trip”. I did, like holes in my skin because I was sure bugs were there and that our house was full of bugs. I ended up in the hospital after trying to kill myself but I don’t even remember that. Celena does. She stayed here when I was having seizure type things and saw me in the hospital. It was very very bad, but I was on a TON of REALLY bad medications then. I knew she’d be mad, I would be mad to. But I didn’t manipulate the system.
    Thank you SO much for taking the time to write! It means a LOT to me to have someone else with BPD back me up on that!!! Other people who don’t have a clue will now have at least 2 opinions, not just mine. Thank you thank you thank you!

    Mandi,

    by now you now (I hope) that I have this habit of just saying things as I see them,

    often lacking in tact, ;) I call a spade simply a spade and think later about how my words may or may not have affected the person.

    you have no need to thank me for simply telling you what I think,

    really I deep down know that people are cunts, they will use what they see to be a persons weakness against that person regardless of who that person is,

    simply because they have found that tender spot.

    I know that we are all capable of manipulating any circumstance or situation, but I also know that this is something that you have not done, and are not doing with regards to your medical condition.

    Medication is a great thing,

    yes you could of asked the Doctor for it, but would he of given it to you?,

    the fact is for what ever reason you had not asked the doctor for medication,

    we can’t go back and change what has been, all we can do is look at what is coming, and somehow try to prepare ourselves for what comes next.

    its fucked that your beating yourself up about the whole meth thing,

    I can safely tell you that although I am Angel in name, I am certainly no saint and have found myself down that crystal road.

    Unfortunately you had some bad gear, and at the time you were in a very dark place in your life, I think that everything happens for a reason in our worlds, sometimes there is no logic or explanation we can find to explain or understand why shit happens it just happens.

    You are a beautiful person, with a heart of gold, and honey, I don’t give a flying fuck what they say, I know your not a manipulative person full stop.

    ((hugs)) now quit beating yourself up about the shit others think or say, hold that head of yours up high, (this pisses em off) and keep on going girl friend………..

    Angel x
