I Am Not Who I Was

I'm Not Who I Was 261 People

    Changes

    I change rapidly as I grow as a human being. I learn life lessons very quickly and rarely repeat mistakes I have made or have seen others make. I'm pretty observant, so it's easier for me to learn from others. I am a completely different person in many ways from who I was...

    Change

    I change on a daily basis... It's just hard to tell. I am different today from what I was yesterday, the day before, or the day before... But change is measured in weeks and months. Change is measured in years. But what of the daily steps that are taken towards the noticable...

    A couple years? Most of what I wrote,

    at least the things that were significant, seem to be from 2012. A lot can change in a year or two. I feel like none of it really applies to me anymore. Things I'd felt, thought, believed then are all different to how I think, feel, and believe these days. It's weird reading...

    I'm Not Who I Was

    I don't know if any of y'all have heard this song by Brandon Heath. "I'm not Who I was"  It really hit home for me. There are people from my past that I haven't forgiven .(not really) Then there are those that I need to ask forgiveness form. So I began writing...

    About ten years ago, I was a very different

    person. I was on my own for the first time in my life. I hated the world; saw evil in every single person I encountered and was sure those I didn't encounter were just as bad. I was afraid of everyone, everything, the world. That changed after I met some pretty good people, but...

    "Or why cinnamon is as delicious as it is..."

    My parents loved me very much and they still do. When I was in kindergarten I was their little sunshine, their little princess, their little everything. But because of all the bullying in school (see my other story on my profile) I've changed. A lot. When I was small I was always...

    I Am Stronger Than You Will Ever Be.

    I am not going to hurt myself to protect others...I am not going to let others hurt me.  I deserve so much better and I will protect myself from people who have said they love me and betrayed me when I was innocent and naive enough to believe that was what I deserved and that...
