I Am a Girl Just Trying to Find Her Way

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 222 People

    I’ve found that the more friends I make the

    more I forget myself. I get so caught up in gaining their trust and keeping their friendship that I lose myself along the way. I’ve become this stranger to myself and I’m not even sure who I am anymore. Or what I’ve become. It’s not something I do purposefully. It just...

    Where's My Path?

    I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I- I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference. ~The Road Not Taken ~Robert Frost I wish I had the courage to take the road less travelled by. I wish I...

    I Certainly Am.

    I am just a girl trying to find my way. I'm trying to find my way through life & it's not easy. In fact, it's very difficult, especially since most things are very difficult for me. It's hard to find my way through life when life is nothing more than an elusive dream. I have no...

    Where Do I Belong?

    I know who I am, most of the time. I know my virtues and flaws, but I also know the parts of me that I can't figure if they are a virtue or a flaw. Sometimes they are both, but I never know which is better. I navigate my path daily, consciously searching for each step that...

    Always!

    I'm always trying to find my way, in life. I am walking close to finding all of me, which I know may take a lifetime to do. Not to mention, I'm always changing and morphing as a person. My experiences and quest for knowledge (obsessively so), doesn't allow me to stay in one place...
