    Several people are mistaken to be introverts.

    I have realized being introverted and reserved are not equal. I've also realized all introverts aren't shy. Enjoying alone time doesn't make you a loner, and not being the center of attention doesn't mean you are an outcast. Introvert or extrovert, both are interesting and can...

    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 Am Mine

    I've been wondering a lot lately about who I am and why I'm here. I've come to the conclusion that I'm here because I think I have purpose. I don't know what that purpose really is yet, so I'm just going to let what happens to me happen to me. I think I'm an all around pretty...

    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.

    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.

    I'm a very straight forward person.  There's not much mystery to me.  I say what I feel and mean what I say so I'm one to put myself out there and just be me, knowing it can mean rejection or it can mean making a real friendship connection with another person.  And I wouldn't...

    The supreme act of courage is

    that of forgiving ourselves. That which I was not but souls have been. That which I would have done but did not do. Can I find the fortitude to remember in truth, to understand, to submit, to forgive and to be free to move on in time

    To feel we belong, we strive for perfection or feel insecure because we do not feel accepted for who we are. What we look like, how we feel, our life choices. Allife I've been looking for acceptance and I never found it, I've never felt I belong or fit in anywhere. There was...
