    My Choice To Be Independent

    I have turned into a totally independent person. I push people away from me. I want to do everything myself and not let others into my life even though I need them. I wasnt always independent. I forced myself to be. Now that im married. life is even harder.

    This Is MY Life.

    My whole life, I've grown up around unstable people. Unfortunately, I am the product of lost parents. I wasn't really raised by either of them. Fortunately, I had a stable side of the family to fall back on and got into a good high school where I was surrounded by smart people...

    Poetess: My father once told me

    when I was young, "Don't live your life relying on anybody...." I took his advice to heart. I learned how to do things on my own from working on a car, fixing stuff around the house, getting and keeping a job, cooking etc etc.. What he didn't tell me was how amazingly freeing...

    I'm an independent young lady.

    I don't like to be dominated if anything I'm the dominant one. I was raised to be an independent girl, not to rely on someone not be bossed around or used. Those of you messaging me about that, just know I am not one to talk to you if you want someone to submissive because I am...

    Independance

    Tears are best dried by your own hand, for if done by the hand of another, you loose your sense of pride,self-worth, and independence. You must never let the people, who have caused the pain to leak from your eyes, to see it shown.

    My Life

    I'm no loner, but I don't like relying on support from others. I don't really need sympathy. I enjoy the company of friends and family but I don't take handouts. I do things my way without interference and learn from my mistakes. In this way I'm free and independent, one of the...

    Independence

    I have learned in my life not to expect anything from others - you are the only person you can control or rely on, therefore don't expect others to keep their promises.  It may sound cynical, but it keeps me from being dissapointed, and when someone does something, it...

    From a young age, I had no choice

    but to be. I still fear loneliness and rejection. As far as I've come, that may always be a apart of me, in my make-up somehow.

    I am an only child, i have a rather unique family. I didn't have many friends when i was at school and so relied on myself. People say i am very in touch with myself. The relationships i have had have never lasted for long, probably because i end up feeling somewhat trapped. I...
