    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 tried to call my girlfriends earlier.

    ..two of them did not answer the phone and the other did not show interest in talking with me about my feelings for my ex and hand up the phone after 4 mins. It's good that I still have this place to write and express my feelings. I went on a date yesterday. This guy was very...

    My Road Is Broken

    My road is broken. Ever since I started breathing, everything has been broken. Not only broken, but broken beyond repair. Everything is shattered, it always has been. It’s like every where I continue to walk, everything I continue to touch ends up broken. It’s just me, I’m...

    I can't say its killing me,

    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!

    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...
