    I am changing. And I am afraid. Where will I end up? I want to move away from everything I've ever relied upon. I have no choice but to start anew in an unknown city, on limited money, limited experience, limited wisdom. Limited as I am, can I make it? I've known joy...

    Someone liked a story I wrote in 2011,

    This is the first story

    that I've posted in a while, I didn't realize the formatting had changed. I don't exactly like it, but whatever. I'm 24 years old (will be in 2 days) and in the last year, my personality has grown so much. And, in my opinion, it's definitely for the better. I feel like this...

    And people are changing all around me.

    It seems that life is a whirlwind. I find this amusing, strange, and a fright. I learn new traits idiosyncratic to people. They are always shifting and molding to one another. I feel lonely whenever I can't make myself lighten up at a party. Being so concerned and observant is...

    Lately, I find myself trying to distance myself

    more and more from people. I want less and less connection with others outside my home. I miss the summer months, the independence being outside gives me , and the warmth, but I don't miss the confusion, aggravations, and pressure from social settings.

    About six months ago,

    me and my girlfriend at the time broke up due to how I freeze up when things are distraught around me. Around the same time, I became homeless and swapped between any available space to sleep. I spent so much time walking or biking across town to get to work and school when...

    Transformation Complete: Four years ago,

    I lost myself. And with it went any and all motivation I might have had to participate in my own life. I just sat on auto-pilot, watching my life pass me by. It started getting to a stage where I was disgusted with who I am and where I am in my life. But I did nothing. So many...

    Remember that sweet little girl

    that wanted to please you so much. The one that always wanted to please you. The one that believe everything you said. The one that wanted to make you proud. The one you said wasn't tough enough. The one you traded for you alcohol or your own selfishness. You killed her. Now it...

    People don't change. Their priorities do.

    The better you understand that, the easier it'll be for you to let go of unnecessary people and/or situations.

    I can feel myself changing.

    Like I'm shedding my skin. I feel raw, but I know i'll grow and metamorphose into a heartless beast. Something I have yet to see. I can feel it. And I'm already done with everything, so what's the point in veering the change towards a good one?

    When you go through a tough time in life,

    it changes you. Your a little wiser and you make better decisions. You see things differently. You learn new things. It makes you into the somebody your meant to be. You can like the change or dislike it. But either way it will come no matter what. I've had people tell me that...

    I'm trying to: concentrate more on the things I

    like, stay calm and keep my anxiety under control, figure out my gender while writing a "diary", keep myself busy with school, friends, ideas, projects and hobbies, take risks and talk about things I care about. It's not always easy, but I think I'm doing well.

    First and foremost. I can attest to the fact

    that what doesn't kill you DOES make you stronger. Through hardship and adversity-we grow! Sometimes we get so stagnant that God creates certain situations to change us for the better. ~I, am changing:)! It has been a slow and steady road but I can see a lot of things WAY more...
