    How "Happier" Feels

    I'm not entirely sure how "happier" is supposed to feel, but I think I'm feeling it. I mean, in a lot of ways, my life is getting worse, but I seem to be feeling less pain, and more happiness. Since I started the most recent combination of medications, I've started to have more...

    I'm starting to enjoy life a bit more.

    Maybe because I know summer is on it's way? But either way, I'm just so much more cheerful and full of life and I love it! Sure I keep having knock backs but they don't keep me down for as long as they used to. Think maybe I've grown up a bit and jut took it on the chin too haha...

    It's True!

    For the first time in a LONG time, I feel like the sun is shining again! I've made the decision to shrug off my old negative identity, the past pain, the insecurities, and MAKE my own happiness. I've decided to love myself no matter what. I will never desert myself again- what a...

    A Slow But Steady Process

    I am getting happier day by day.  Happiness is frame of mind.  I know too many people who, despite financial security, wonderful lovers, great jobs, are all miserable with themselves.  On the other hand, you can go to poverty-stricken areas of the world where...

    Fifth grade graduation.

    It's sort of bittersweet isn't it? Watching us running around as naive as we were. You going to the camera yelling, "I PASSED I PASSED" and me laughing in the back ground. Your best friend- who is now a jerk of all jerks- was high fiving me. My best friend pushing you into a...

    Happy Happy

    Lately I've been feeling much better and happier about myself and things in my life. For some time I thought that everything sucked and that nobody could ever love me and that I'd never find another person in my life. Now I see that all that stuff is possible. Things aren't...

    Day By Day

    I used to wish that I could break your heart

    like you did mine. I used to wish you'd regret it. I begged for you to feel the pain you put me through. But, now it's been two years. It took me two years to finally forgive you for what you did to me. I will not ever be your friend I don't believe. I will not ever fall for...

    Slowly but surely. I have many nights

    when I lay awake thinking. I don't cry anymore though. And I'm happier during the day. I know that tomorrow will bring something new and better. That I don't need to ponder on the past and on people that don't care about me. Sometimes I forget to think positive though, those are...

    Wow. Just wow. I ran through all the

    experiences I've written so far and I am really happy to see life in a new perspective. I could just reminisce that sad sap from months ago and if I could compare to the me now, it's just so exhilarating. The days I spent locked up in my room, not getting out of my house, and...

    Looking back at my life I realize I am starting

    to get happier! More time has been going by between my bouts of depression, and said bouts have been getting shorter and shorter. I laugh more, just because I'm happy. I've been making an effort the last five years or so to be more true to myself; specifically, more true to the...

    Wow. I look at all these experiences

    that I have wrote years ago and I am so happy I am in a much better place now. I'm also grateful that I am still here to experience this roller-coaster that we call life. I was suicidal years ago and depressed but I don't feel like that anymore. Thank goodness that I gave my...

    Learning that it is okay to be me.

    You see even online, I could not be ME. I was scared that I would not make any friends because what I wanted to say they would hate me for being one way too much. But I am not a one way street, I am a intercession of everything. I am a bit of a gamer, I am a bit of a music geek...
