    I was chosen to be class president (second term

    now). I am literally the last person fit to be class president, with my social anxiety and shyness. I just recently became comfortable around my classmates (all 28 guys), some continue to ask me why I'm so quiet (still less than other would, thankfully). I don't do public...

    I always try to improve myself

    because I've had so much problems controlling my emotions and learning how to be the best person I can be to myself and others, it gets really tiring sometimes but making the people you care about happier is always worth it in the end. I tend to have trouble with controlling...

    The first step was and is healing

    and it's been a six year process thus far. I never thought the child of abusive drug addicts who lived in a van for weeks as a girl would be this strong resilient role model. I'm 24 and for the first time in my life I'm actually acting on this notion I don't deserve to suffer. I...

    Depression Free...

    When I was a kid and told what I want to be when I grow up, I never once said "Depressed and Suicidal." Fast forward 30 years later: I lay in a darkened room for days... crying, feeling hopeless and alone... popping any pill I could find, drinking day and night. I withdrew myself...

    The only thing at matters in life is the climb.

    People will come and go. Money is just a tool. Love can be found, lost, and found again. But the climb to better yourself is forever. The moment you stop climbing is when the small fleeting things take you over. When the best you can do for fun is drink, eat and have sex. That's...

    Life is like a rope with a boulder at the end.

    At first the rope is strong, then as time passes it gets weaker, and soon begins to break. Everyone still has that end of the rope, life as you know it falls into the unknown, nor will you be forgotten- my great grandmother
