I Am Currently Growing Into a New Person

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 324 People

    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...

    I Feel Good About It

    Like I have said that I have overcome depression. I am experiencing new emotions that I never have before. I am not changing myself entirely. I am just knocking away the worst parts of my thoughts. I know I will never be perfect. However I know I worry to much about things that...

    Swinging

    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...

    The Art Of Reinvention

    I joined EP as a way of expressing those areas of my life that was keeping me back from moving forward the way I wanted to. I wanted to share my stories and receive feedback from as many people as possible. On here, I can tell the same stories over and over again without boring...

    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...

    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...

    A Year Of Firsts Continues

    I find myself drawn to this experience group even more than the Recently Widowed group. As my Year of Firsts continue I find experiences are more about change and becoming a new person. I know the hardest "firsts" are yet to come. As I get ready to accept another birthday, it...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
