My life philosophy is very simple: I do what I want. This includes knowing and following my own heart - so whilst I *can* be cold, I'm not an asshole, I do care about not hurting others. Beyond that, I don't see the point in being overly stressed or hyperactive about things in a life... which ends. KISS: Keep it simple stupid.
Anyway, I respect those who are strong enough to stand alone, but not afraid to wear their heart on their sleeve. It's representative of their ability to face life honestly.
