Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 232 People

    A few months ago I had bought myself some new

    clothes. This isn't something I do often but when I do, its a treat. A few weeks ago...I got to wear my new clothes for a special occasion and they were tight. Not just a little tight either. I was devastated. So, I decided I didn't want to waste my money and I was going to...

    So I've been struggling with self-confidence

    issues for a very long time but it really flourished 5 years ago. I've never been comfortable with myself so I've never really formed many friendships where the relationship was defined as best friends. I spoke to everyone and was really friendly with them all but I never got...

    I have came a long way I feel in my life.

    I've gotten over some fears and have done some awesome life experiences. I've helped people when they needed it and always will offer it. I'm proud because I wanted to donate blood and I did, I will also do in future. I'm prod because I'm not like everyone else, I'm unique. That...

    Just finished registration at school.

    As soon as I got in my car and took a look at my school ID I was full with so many emotions. I stopped myself from crying. Tears of joy desperately waiting to drift out of me. I am proud of myself. Another stepping stone. Everyday I feel more complete. I am a work in progress!

    Well Kinda....

      I am kinda proud of myself. Just having someone comment on a story that I had written on, I realized that I am going on almost four months without cutting. I think that is a great accomplishment, at least for me. I was cutting almost everyday for a long time, and had...

    I Am...

     I am proud of myself. I thought I wasn't going to be able to get myself out of the hole I had dug for myself. I remember thinking to myself eight months ago after my sister had passed away why should I even get better? It doesn't even sound like anyone does want...

    I Got Myself Out of This Hole :)

    I had a pretty stressful day today. On the one hand I was longing for a quiet Sunday, then there's been my family who wanted to spend time with me, and of course there's school. Everything was just tearing me apart into little pieces, until there was just a little...

    Life Changing

    Well, my Cory left this morning and I didn't get to see him off. But at least this time there was a reason for it. I was up late last night studying for the ASVAB that I am taking at 2pm or so today. I have made a very big decision to join the Navy. I got a 35 on the practice...

    One of my friends stumbled across my EP account

    today. I doubt that they'll remember the username long enough to actually check it out, but I would barely mind if that person saw. Yes, some of the experiences are related to him. Yes, I had a crush on him, and I would talk about that here. But I'm not ashamed of that. I'm not...

    I almost don't recognise myself.

    I am so proud of my achievements. I am proud to be content, and happy! I have come a long long way and managed to say goodbye to all my fears. It's fantastic to feel this way. I have such light mind! :) IT's progress, and it's everyday learning, and I love it! :)

    I never meant to hurt anyones feelings.

    I don't feel I should not talk about being proud just because it makes them feel less. It was something I focused on, something I did not want to be and it was very important to me and I accomplished it. I did not become a teen and/or single mother. Many of my friends had teen...

    I was so cruel to myself.

    I've now gone nearly 25 hours and I haven't eaten anything at all! Well, my mom forced me to eat a piece of salmon, but I ate the smallest piece I could get away with. It was only half the size of my thumb, so it probably had 10 calories in it at most. Besides that, I haven't...

    since I left Stavanger. I survived three months alone in Newcastle. I have been steadily raising funds to explore more of Europe and the world as a dancer, and I have been able to explore Great Britain, alone. Last month I went to Paris alone for a week!

    After great results at the gym today.

    After 8 weeks of lifting heavy I've managed to: loose 1/2 a stone, gone from 26% body fat to 23%, from 4 to 3% viscular fat, gone smaller all over except from my thighs (good!) and my metabolic age has gone from 26 years old to 23. And I'm 38 so cannot complain on that one. I...
