Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,962 People

    I may cut myself. I may feel suicidal sometimes.

    Another woman's beauty is not the absence of

    your own.... Just something to remember. Personally this is something that I struggle with. I feel good about myself until I look at another girl; but we all have something special and beautiful about us. Feeling comfortable and confident is a must and although it may take some...

    I am indeed still a work in progress.

    And I honestly don't want to be. I want to know stuff and be able to do stuff already. However, for me, it's not like that. And so I'm stuck with making mistakes and learning all the big stuff such as being compassionate, patient understanding and doing what's right etc blah...

    Yeah but so is everyone else.

    It's only that some of us become more complete than others.

    for 1,5 year now, and I'm getting better, but I don't think I'll ever become the person I want to be.

    I commit a sin. Sin against my own body.

    As I came to my senses, I feel guilt, ashamed and paranoid. I pray to the Lord for forgiveness and for his power to work on me. I look up to my ceiling just like talking to a man above. Then I wonder, Jesus doesn't always stay above, I mean he could be there at your side...

    I went to church today

    for the first time in a very long time. It was to a friend's church to be there for the baptism of their son, the boy I've been nannying for the past few months. Of all church traditions, baptisms have generally been one of my favorites in the past. But today, amidst the...

    Some people learn from mistakes

    and don't repeat them. Others try to block the memories and just delete them, but I. keep em as a reminder they're not killing me. I thank God for teaching me humility. remember to see things how they are and not how you like em to be cause even when the world is falling on top...

    Sometimes I regret venting here.

    Not because I've gotten overly negative reactions or anything (you all have been generally gracious with me so far, so I thank you), but I feel sort of whiny and I wouldn't want anyone to think of me in that way. Sometimes I write to figure myself out, as if I don't know what...

    Still Trying To Get It Right

    As a 65 year old you would think i would have much of life figured out by now. Not so. With age hopefully comes wisdom. Suddenly or sometimes not so suddenly we realize what we do not know, or even worse what we have been screwing up most of our lives. Some of it we can change...

    It is not important to defend your faults,

    it's important to overcome them.
