    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...

    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...

    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...

    Who Is It??

    Life is so precious to waste it!!! Why live with a woman I don’t love? I thought a lot about putting an end to this play that lasted more than five years, but still can’t decide on the right time. Am I waiting for having kids to change everything for the best? Can the kids be...

    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...

    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

    I need to do things to improve my life

    and make me a happier human being than the state that I'm currently in. I'm tired of coming on here and avoiding my own problems. I make myself feel better by trying to help others out on here. Which is a great thing, don't get me wrong. But it's easy giving advice. Now it's...

    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...

    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.
