I Have An Accent

Unconventional Even without reading other "I Have An Accent" stories, I would suspect this isn't the usual story one would find here. My accent has nothing to do with the way I pronounce my words. Rather, it has to... [more]

  • I Cherish True Friendships

    Let Them Know I have few true friends. Fair weather friends are many and come and go, but I never seem to have more than a handful of true friends - the ones who will go out of their way for you - see you th… [more]
  • I Believe We Are Slaves Masquerading As Free

    Where Do You Stand?  My story is about training. It’s about being persuaded and coerced, however innocently or intentionally, by authorities, parents, siblings, peers, merchandisers, the media - into beli… [more]
  • I Always Feel Not Good Enough

    My Shadow I have NEVER felt as though I were good enough. I'm sure it's the product of being treated that way - parents who expected perfection, didn't tollerate mistakes - whatever. Regardless of where it come… [more]
  • I Battle Depression and Anxiety

    If Only For A Light At The End Of The Tunnel I've been dealing with depression and anxiety all my life starting as a child. I've seen doctors and practitioners of all kinds over the past 50 years or so and nothing has helped that much. One thing… [more]

    Sadness
    I knew the day was coming. they don't live forever. But, my father passed away peacefully today - early this afternoon. He made it to almost 90 years of age - was married to my mom for an incredible 67 years. Seems so strange - knowing him for over 60 years and not having him here anymore. I'm both very sad and very grateful. If you haven't already, get to know your parents, make peace with them, drop your resentments, love them - no matter what they may have done to you. There is no such thing as a perfect parent.… [more]

    Dazed and Angry
    I got a phone call today from my older brother who told me my 28 year old nephew - the son of my younger brother - had killed himself. He semed to have so much going for him - an absolutely beautiful girlfriend and a 3 year old son, good health, a job. Seems he had money issues, or at least that's the only problem I heard about from the family. I can't believe money alone would drive an otherwise perfectly healthy person to do himself in. I know he used to be on some pretty heavy drugs and had been arrested several times for his involvement with them. But that ended several years ago, so we think. He never let anyone else know about his problems, kept his feelings and involvements to himself… [more]

    Up In Smoke
    It was a beautiful car - a '94 Honda Accord 5 speed - excellent condition - custom wheels - custom lights - great custom sound system. I kept it in immaculate condition. Tonight it got totaled. Rear-ended by some kid with no tags on his car, a revoked driver's license, no insurance and no brain. He said he couldn't stop because his tires didn't have any tread on them. I looked at the tires, and they didn't, but even with no tread I should have heard some skidding sound - or horn - before the impact. I'm sure there's a good reason his license was revoked, and there's ceertainly a better one now. Funny, he volunteered to me, as soon as he got out of the car, that he hadn't been drinking, wasn'… [more]

    Guilty.
    I killed a cat tonight. It looked bright enough, it's eyes shining in my headlights. Looked right at me as I drove up the street, so I thought it wouldn't bolt out in front of me. I slowed down, swerved to miss and ran right over it. Saw it in my rear view mirror just lying there - no movement at all. I feel so bad about it. I love all animals, and have 2 cats myself. And what about the owner(s)? Maybe it was part of a household with children. I'm having a hard time with it. This is a bad feeling.… [more]
