    I Think I Love My Dysfunctional Family

    I am learning what I need to change about

    myself. I realize I don't share how I am feeling. I worry that if I do people might might judge me or leave me. I know that this isn't true in fact probably the opposite. I can give my heart to someone and give them all I have. I still am scared to share all of me. I am so...

    Things

    I think we should quit thinking too much. One should get over themselves once in a while. Hope is a virtue and keeping it is like keeping water in your palms. What do we do when there's nothing to look forward to? We look around and do something. Dejavu is knowing everything...

    I was never a fan of going to school.

    Even today, taking all these classes, that I don't want to be in. The only thing that keeps me going is that I'm constantly learning new things. Not just by burying myself in books but about key aspects in life and how people react to certain things. I hate school but I love...

    I'm There, I Can't Believe It, I've Finally Found The Better Person In Me

    For at least the last 20 years of my life, I have been interested in self improvement and applying it to myself in many ways. And of course all through that time I have learnt and grew as a person. But in the last 3 months I seem to have hit this wonderful high. I feel like...

    I am learning. I am learning to love myself

    more and more every day. I am learning that no one is perfect and I have finally accepted that I am not nor will I ever be. I love my imperfections because they make me, me. I am learning to trust myself and my instincts. I am learning that it is okay to say no. I am...

    I am learning the importance of happiness.

    Once you lose your happiness and the people and things that make you happy, you finally realize that life is more worthwhile when happiness come first.

    I guess being successful doesn't mean getting

    what you want but it means taking what life has given you and making it better than what you wanted. "If life throws you lemons, make lemonade." its everywhere, but not many people can actually do something like than in real life. Thats why depression exists. Anxiety, anger...

    I'm mad at myself. For years I've

    second-guessed, hesitated, doubted. I assume the worst from myself and constantly push to make up for mistakes that I never made. Why did I spend so much time pulling myself underwater, drowning in self-perceived failure? I am learning. I am surprised by this human that seems...

    I Didn't Know That I Wasn't Good At Communicating

    I never realized just how disfunctional my marriage really was - the things that were swept under the carpet, the words that were never said, the communication I never learned. I am learning that I am quite socially retarded when it comes to my ability to communicate in a...

    This year has brought on

    so much.... Uncertainty. Fear. Directionless. And gray skies turned clear and bright. Chance. Surprise. Love. Hopes. Dreams. Purpose. Fire. Determination. And through all this I am learning. I am learning to trust, to believe. I am learning to open my eyes, and see the beauty...
