    I used to be the happiest and most hyper kid that just loved to smile. Everyone loved me and my positivity was just contagious. Now? It's basically the complete opposite. Too negative in thinking, too dark in ideas, too depressing in actions. Nobody really loves me anymore, and...

    I Am Not My Past...why Won't It Leave Me Alone?

    I hurt my former best friend in a really bad way awhile back. It took her awhile but she forgave me, we're still friends but our relationship has changed significantly. We had dinner recently and she told me that she was worried about me and a friendship I'm in now. She believes...

    It Is Where I Was But Not Where I Am Headed....

    I Am Done!

    I am really starting to see how I have lived in the past for so long. There are times when I think about people or EXPERIENCES from the past and feel the pain all over again. Some of it is still so fresh I feel like I am being choked by it. I don't want to feel that way anymore...
