    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...

    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 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...

    Today we had immunisations

    and I had to get two needles (and I have a phobia towards needles). They both stung very badly, but I was the only one who didn't cry, and the only one who went in with a smile on my face and came out with a smile on my face.

    Its Been A While

    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...

    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 have achieved a lot

    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!

    Today I pushed my fears behind me

    and stepped out of my shell. I took a chance and did not think about the risks as much and it was good. Now I will push myself to do this more often! Yay!

    At the beginning of the year I declared

    that I would learn to love myself more and prove to those that hurt me that I'm not broken. I'm stronger. I have been exercising, trying my best to eat right and learn everyday that there is something to be thankful for. I realized my clothes fit much more looser, I have more...

    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'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...

    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!

    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...
