    I didn't always enjoy life.

    There was a time when just being alive hurt so much, it seemed pointless to stay that way. But I could see the way my suicide would break apart my family, that nothing would be the same for them again, and I couldn't do that to them. So I put it off, until I didn't want to kill...

    Happy Days

    I met this lovely person who seems to enjoy just spending time with me. I realized I don't have to fill the empty space in conversation just for the sake moving my lips. I found someone that can kiss my soul just by being near. It is nice having a friend and a lover at the same...

    At This Moment, I Am Happy to Be Alive..

     I am not usually this happy. About three hours ago, I was on here, feeling alone and depressed. I am 14, and my moods are never average. They are either very high, or very low. It's a bit hard sometimes. I am happy for a reason that would probably sound very simple...

    Being Grateful

    Isn't it funny, in a sad sort of way, how often we get so mired down in every day depressions like bills, job, responsibilities and such until we forget just how lucky we are to be alive? It can take something as simple as anaphylatic shock, a sever car wreck or as in my...

    Pleasure and Pain Loss and Gain Praise and Blame Fame and Disgrace.

    Those 8 feelings constantly pooling us in different directions, causing suffering. They are also known as eight worldly dharmas, or 8 worldly concerns.  Getting what you want, and avoiding getting what you do not want. Wanting (instant) happiness, and not wanting unhappiness...

    Death

    Each one of us is a Universe.  Driving to work today in the dark, white lines visible as they come rushing toward me and disappear under the car.  Dark shadow of my hand on the dark shadow of the wheel, moving back an forth with the rhytum of the road.  Shadows and light, the...

    I'm Glad Those Pills Didn't Work...

    I used to be suicidal. But now I'm a mom, and I can't imagine my life any different than it is right now. Granted, it could be a little bit better, but I'm thankful for what I have, especially my son!

    I pretend to be happy for everyone except ep. No one cares really, but it usually makes people happy when you're happy and smiling. That's all I want, for everyone to be happy.
