    Independence

    I have quite a few friends that don't feel complete unless they are in a relationship. They will be constantly searching for "their other half" because they think that are not good enough by themselves. Since I'm currently in college I see so many females just dragging their feet...

    My whole family consist of narcissists.

    One is Authoritative, the other is the co dependent enabler and the last one is passive aggressive. What's my place in all of this? Well, I'm breaking away slowly, but I am the perfectionist scape goat. Everything that goes wrong I am to blame. The Authoratiative narcisst says I...

    From Me To Them And Back Again.

    As a child I was blessed with parents who were very laid back, and thus I have fond memories of the mere enjoyment in the experience of life. I'm not saying my life was a breeze as my dad had anger issues and my mom drank a lot. But in terms of values or world views, both my...

    I Am Not Your Little Girl.

    My parents raised me in a manner what I consider appropriate for the times we live in. I have nothing but love and respect for them, for all they've done and taught me. They showed me how much they really love me. They taught me how to respect the old, the young, the living and...

    I've spent a lot of time trying to people please

    and just go with the flow of others. I realized I let a lot of good opportunities pass me by. Now I am doing what makes me happy and doing the things I want too. I've had people hold me back and I've even held myself back, but not anymore. I am happier now that I am spending my...

    I'M Not Perfect

    I'm still young, a teenager. Who didn't grow up with the adults today. I grew up in a messed up society. Of course I am not going to be perfect, no one is. Telling me to go listen to better music with words that aren't filthy just does nothing for you and I. I don't live to...

    For Better Or For Worse

    Meaning: What you see is what you get. The one thing that never fails to bring me to anger is people who tell me what to do. Especially ones that are younger. I will literally run circles around them. And they will promptly hear the words: MAKE ME.  Another is "Smile." If I don...

    Myself.

    I used to follow crowds and pretend to like things my friends did even if I didn't. I never made my own choices I let others make them for me. Something happened to make me see that I wasn't even myself anymore, I was some clone of the girls around me, so I changed. I am my own...
