    I Tried To Be Fake....

    But I can't, I open my mouth and my opinions come out. I have a huge laugh, it sneaks out often.  My face is expressive.  I get hurt and try to hide the pain and anger, but it too gets away.  I think a naughty child is funny and try to hide my giggle.  When I am lonely and...

    I Don't Know What Changed It For Me, But It's Awesome!

    I used to hate myself and be depressed a lot. I used to sabotage friendships and relationships, thinking deep down that I didn't deserve it. I used to believe that other people were far better than me, and that they could ruin my life and there was nothing I could do about it. I...

    I Always Want To Be

    You know what I really want? Never lose my sensitivity, Even when sometimes it „scratches“ my soul, Because without it, I couldn‘t feel myself.I wouldn’t be real...I am myself and I always want to be.

    Self-acceptance

    This is wonderful, the emotions I feel, the blood keeping me warm, the immeasurable thirst I embrace and the "now" that unfolds before me each and every moment. I like this. This life, this time, this me. Almost insane, but it feels so liberating to be unbound by fears, by...

    I am one of the people

    who love the why of things. I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can't be helped.
