    Getting Stronger, One Day At A Time

    No matter what happened, breathe. You are here, you are alive. Breathe. The hurt and pain can go away, if you open your heart and release you anger. Breathe. The memories may last a lifetime, or you can replace them with better times. Breathe. You can have power over your...

    I believe that the saddest thing in life,

    is caring so much for someone & then one day, u'll look in their eyes & listen to them talk & realize that they are gone. All u see infront of u is a stranger with just a known name.

    Life's Game

    Anger swells inside my chest. Rage controlled I do my best. I look at the world with a cynical eye. I can not help but laugh and wonder why. My life is nothing but a joke. How could I have sat and hoped. Sometimes I think all is lost. I played Life's Game and I Lost!

    So all divorce negotiations are over.

    A settlement has been agreed to and signed. I put deposit on an apartment and move out next weekend and I find myself broken, hollow, empty and sad. I find little to no joy saying goodbye to my husband. Will my life ever be the same again? Will I ever find true happiness? Will I...

    Acceptance...Sort Of.

    Things change. People don't really change, your perception changes. The lens of your past shapes how you see your present. Maybe that's an incredibly selfish way of looking at the world: You look at someone and only see what they've done to you, be it good or bad. People aren't...
