    I'm not ready to tell my friends about my

    self-harm and I might go swimming tomorrow. I can't hide my cuts when I'm swimming. I suggested going to a movie instead. I'm afraid our plans to go to the movies won't happen and we end up going in the pool.

    When I was a child people would tell me

    that one day I would be a heart breaker. I didn't really understand what it meant but it didn't sound appealing to me. I was confused as to why they had huge smiles on their face while exclaiming this. To me it seemed like a horrible concept, breaking peoples hearts. Whatever it...

    I'm sure I knew this was coming.  I hoped it wouldn't.  But here I am, 31 years old locked in my parents bedroom with my two year old daughter waiting for my drunk husband to try and beat down the door.  For once in my life though, I actually know I am doing...

    Next week, it's parent-teacher conferences.

    My mom doesn't know where all my classes are so I'm forced to go with her, maybe even my dad is coming too. I haven't been doing good so far especially in science (I have a 16% F). I know I'm going to die when we get back home. I just know it.

    I used to be afraid of normal things,

    like the dark or dying. Now, the normal day-to-day things scare me. Meeting people. Going places. Driving. Basically anything that involves leaving my very small, safe bubble. Oddly, the things that used to scare me, no longer do. Its like my whole perspective of fear has been...

    I live in constant fear every day.

    I have two really big fears, and tons of anxieties. I get stressed or anxiety a lot, and I get so scared that I make myself cry or deal with said fear because my mind makes it happen. I'm tired of it, but there's no relief.

    To Be Honest I Am Scared.

    I don't think about it much as I employ mindfulness in my daily life, staying in the NOW, so my thoughts don't wander. It helps. But, when I lie in bed at night, in the dark, in the silence, my mind goes to the future. I try to feel how it will be when I leave the home I love...

    My biggest fear is never finding myself.

    Being swallowed up by outside influences and living a life created for regular people with regular minds. Never finding out what I'm capable of.. What my true desires are.. Slowly losing sight of what it's like to have a completely independent outlook on life.
