    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 Actually Did It

    I went out and tried to meet someone and got interest from them. After years of being shy and not doing anything, I am glad I went out and actually did it.

    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...

    Hmmm

    I am proud of myself for being an animal-loving, Earth-loving, Universe-loving, miracle-believing, gay-marriage supporting, non-racist pacifist that sees what others don't seem to :) I just wish they would see it too :(

    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 Found Ep Myself To Explore.

    I am proud of myself. I found EP for myself. Here is a sight where I can explore myself and relate. Learn from others and be inspired by theirs. A place where I can be open to myself, while being polite to each other. I am proud of myself I found EP.

    For the first time in a long time I am proud of myself. I've been smoking for the last 16 years. I decided it is time to quit. For the last 3 days I have not had a cigarette. Even though they are sitting in front f me. And it is so tempting to grab one but I have not. I figure...

    Taking Hold of My Emotions

    Last night I shocked myself and my girlfriend with something. For the first time in my entire life, I took hold of my emotions, instead of them controlling me. My girlfriend and I have been going through a rough time. This stems from her loss of respect and trust in me...

    I was so cruel to myself.

    Before...i let them paint those heavy weights on my confidence. Worse, i painted the world on my worth, slowly crushing any hope i had left. They kept telling me that my accomplishments were not worth a story. I would cry because they did not know my struggle. Through winter...

    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!

    Nearly 25 Hours Down And I'm So Proud!!

    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...

    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...
