I Am Currently Growing Into a New Person

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 387 People

    I'm doing a lot better.

    No more hotel with a crappy fiancé. I've been all about me and finding myself lately . I have felt things I never thought I'd feel before and changed so much. Sometimes I have slip ups though.. Days where I just break and I do everything wrong and take what feels like 20 steps...

    I cant say I'm liking the 'growing up' part.

    Not right now, atleast. I'm coming to terms with certain things, and preparing myself to face the real world. I have always been a dreamy person. Dreamt of playing about on beaches on islands all day long. Living on the countryside, in a tent maybe, and cooking and roasting my...

    The Explorer's Path

    Last night I had a nightmare. In it, I was writing another tedious email to someone who wouldn't leave me alone or forgive me in real life. I was responding to another one of his emails over "love" mistakes I made in the past when out of the blue he jumped up and grabbed me...

    Process of Reinvention (part Deux)

    I allowed myself to emerge from my past relationship emotional issues last week. It wasn’t the most comforting time, sinking so low, but I saw that I really do love myself and that I over-compromised far too much for others, that I had allowed people to impose on me because I...

    Because its all about EP,

    EP, No Real Life. Its a slow and awkward process, but I really do think that putting myself out there here has allowed me to connect with people as a new person, one not hindered by physical realities or life experiences. The result, while not a "real" new person, is the...

    You're Here....no Really You're Over There

    Transition has been a very important word in my vocabulary these past few months. It seems that everything I knew six months ago has somehow morphed into something different. Not all the changes have been unwelcomed, but the major ones definitely were not invited to my party...

    For me, there is always some change in myself,

    hopefully in a positive direction but truthfully, not always good. Continually trying to see more, think bigger, do better. Struggling to find the spot I feel I need to be at. The place that feels like it's mine, where comfort, strength, love of self and productivity with...

    Seriously Exceeding Expectations

    With age comes wisdom. Sure. I’ll accept that. You live and you have experiences. Yes. Now, if you are able to categorize and store the facts that you glean from those experiences, you can then probably parlay those little tidbits into what some might consider useful...

    Humbugginess Be Gone

    "It's just a thought, and thoughts can be changed." I forget which self-help book I read that in, but that's actually a good thought to remember. I guess the same can be said of states of mind as well. Holidays are difficult for me, as they are for most people who have...

    No More "Life Of Riley"

    I always felt I "lived the life of Riley". I worked part time, could get off when I needed to be somewhere else or just wanted to be somewhere else. I was not the bread winner in the family and I loved not having the responsibility and just leaned on Tracy. He was a great guy to...

    Finding My True Self

    My true self is funny, confident, and caring.   I'm not shy, that isn't who I am.  I was taught at an early age that children are to be see and not heard.  Then my ex would out talk me if I tried to say anything.  I was always wrong, or he just didn't listen to me.  There...

    Changing Changes Stuff (and It Ain't Always Pretty)

    I am growing into a new person. Have been discreetly changing mentally and physically over the past year or so, and am, at 40, ready to live my life the way I've always wanted to, not according to how some book (some church, some husband, some society) says I should live. I've...

    Almost There

    I've been forced to change who I am multiple times in my life, and it takes time for me to figure out who I am again. It seems that the cycle is that I get emotionaly hurt and than depressed and than try to pretend like I'm happy by going out and drink at a bar. That's happened...

    I walked a lot today. I walked mostly alone, sometimes with my dog, and I did some good thinking while I was out there.I've changed, good or bad I guess depends upon whom you ask. I doesn't matter though, what anyone else thinks. Ultimately I have to live with me, in this head...
