    But I Still Feel Like One.

    I am overly sensitive, incredibly self-conscious, terrified of strangers, passive aggressive, and worst of all...giddy. Will I really be stuck this way forever?

    Past Present And Future.

    While I write stories from the past. I no longer want to use those stories as excuses for my behaviour. While memories and feelings of the past get to me I no longer want to open the wounds I have already healed. I thought that facing the past can give me more strength to...

    What Kind of Woman Am I Ever Going to Be...

    Troughout my life I have always questioned everything, disagreed with most and trusted little. I don't know why. It's in my nature. However, I am also a very affectionate and kind of dependent person. I've always had a hard time being alone, and maybe that's why I always felt...

    Don't Feel Like An Adult Either

    Although I am 25 years old sometimes I feel much younger than I am. I don't feel like a child, I'm not a girl but I don't feel like a woman either. Most of the time I do not feel like an adult, which is very frustrating at times. I realize I just graduated from college and being...

    I'm A Woman And An Adult!!

    I sometimes wish that my parents would recognise that I am not a little girl anymore. I am in my early twenties now. I am able to form my own opinion on things.. My mum, who lives in a different town(!), wants to know where I am all the time, and if I go anywhere and don't tell...

    I have always been a beanpole,

    of a girl, and I've never had trouble with my weight. Obviously, girls need to be wise about their looks, but I've never had problems over my weight. I don't take life for granted anymore, I'm not that little girl anymore! Appearances, including all perceptions, are important.

    I feel like I have been blind to everything my

    whole life, but now I am starting to see what is reality and what is fake in life. I have no intentions of harming other's but I'm not perfect, won't make promises I can't keep, and I can't prevent how other people react to my decisions. I am a woman now, I no longer crave...

    Here's a short rant that bothered me at work.

    Today at work, someone called me a "Little Girl".... I didn't look at them when they said that because I believed that they weren't talking to me even though they were. I'm sorry but I do not like being referred to that. I am an 18 year old, who is very independent and I work...
