    Not Quite

    I guess I'll keep changing until I die, right? it would be hard to be a person that you really wanted to be and then have to live out your life not discovering new things about yourself and not letting your experiences shape you.

    "Just Yet" I wanted to say "I am not the

    person I want to be." EP offered me up this group instead. And after the typical feelings of "Why doesn't EP ever have what I'm looking for?" a new idea surfaced which said, "Well, maybe EP is right this time. Maybe this group is *better* than the one I had in mind." "I am not...

    Sometimes I Wonder If I Ever Will Be

    I look in the mirror at this person staring back and at times I don't recognize my own reflection.  What I have become is nothing like the person that is inside of me trying so hard to break free.  Breaking free requires the self esteem that I lost somewhere along the...

    Little Steps

    I do have moments where I'm quite confident that I will be okay and be able to get past my problems and have a decent life.I need to work on having more of those confident moments. I'm not terribly sure how I should be doing that though. I guess I'll just have to gradually try...

    Just Yet

    Unfortunately, I am not the person I want to be just yet.  There's many things I would like.  I don't know if it'll happen or not and for now, dreams is all I can do.  Not a bad thing after all.  :)

    Not Yet...

    But it is a work-in progress.  I hope to be who I want to be very soon.  It's hard to change though.  But I know I need to.  I want to be happy, and to do that, I need to make changes within myself.

    Gnosis Ego. . .

    And knowing me. . . I will never be that person. Though I always aim for the highest, as I grow I realize just how high one can go. I am the person I dreamed of being several years ago, except where the dream has changed. But now I want to be so much more. But that is life! A...

    Hm.

    I doubt I'll ever be the person I want to be.Maybe I'm not quite sure who I want to be anyway.Sometimes I have these moments where I feel so complete and content,where I'm positive that I belong only to myself and that I'm my own.Everyone else could disappear and I'd still be me...

    I'm Lost..

    I look at myself, and I'm disgusted. I hate what I've become. I've let myself do this. I go out and drink, I cut, I have a terrible family life.... I don't even try anymore. I hate it. I've lost almost everyone I love...  -- No matter what... I can't stop cutting. It's...
