    This Is For Myself

    Because no one else ever has, and because no one else ever will. This is because I am the only one who knows my story in it's entirety, and I am the only one who cares. If I am not going to change my life, then who will? Well despite what I may want to believe...no one

    And I'm afraid of that I might not be able to

    find what I need and changing my life for. According to what I have been through, all the people that I have ever met/known the chance is very small that I will find it. For sure I will find other options but I feel like it doesn't worth to try anything less/similar or don't...

    Vacation Realization

    Due to my preparations for college I went to visit university abroad. I'm staying here at the capital of this further not described country. I'm going "home" tomorrow already, but just this short time away, made me realize a lot of things. The feeling of freedom as I sat on the...

    Happiness

    My family is not one for socializing. They hardly ever socialize with each other. But I want to be different. I'm going to get out and do things. I want to see the world and all it has to offer. And most of all, I am going to be happy with my life, and myself.

    I Slipped Tonight...and It Woke Me Up

    Today is the Jewish day of atonement, or "Yom Kippur." My experience tonight was so strange and painful, I just need someone to pat me on the shoulder and say that it'll be okay. I have been struggling with marijuana dependence (yes, it exists) for over a year now. I basically...

    Someday, Somehow

    I know that sometimes, things seem pretty hopeless. Sometimes I fall and think that I will never be able to get back up - but I also know that this feeling in my heart isn't just a thought; it is hope. Hope has essentially brought me back to life many times in my past. Hope...

    For The Better

    My life (after being in the ******* for 2+ yrs) is finally looking up. I found a job, I'm saving money, I have a great supportive best friend/roommate, and I met someone I'm pretty sure I want to be with forever. I am so thankful that the higher powers sent me someone who...

    I Am Going To Change My Life

    Twenty five to one in the morning does not seem like a very appropriate time to make such a proclamation. But at twenty five to one in the morning it has occurred to me that I need to change, so, then again, perhaps I am at my most observant in the early hours of a Thursday in...

    Soon

    I sense a massive change coming on for me; much needed. Stuck in a serious rut with work and I am in a depressive funk that I desperately need to dig out of. My kids are older, 1 will be graduating in May and the smoke is clearing, regarding my needs. So here I sit, nearly 50...

    Constantly Changing

    I am constantly changing small things about myself that ultimately don't serve me. I believe changing your life is as much a journey as living it. I believe we all evolve, sometimes it's uncomfortable and necissary, sometimes it's uncomfortable and unnatural. I believe endurance...

    Change Is Inevitable

    I have changed my life so much and it would seem that a constant state of change is inevitable.  I am married to a wonderful man, he is my 4th husband.  I never had children with the others that I was married to because somewhere in my soul I knew none of them would make a...

    Definitely!

    I just turned 23, it was my birthday yesterday, and I feel inspired enough to change my life for the better. Although it may seem unfair to some of my friends, I've decided that it'd be best to cut ties with them - I don't need friends who're only interested in using me. More...
