    Changes

    Today my Narcotics Anonymous sponsor came over and had me read her the letter she had me wrote to myself. The letter was me apologizing to myself for all I have put myself through. It's a very uncomfortable feeling to actually acknowledge how much I have neglected and hurt myself...

    Ive realized many problems

    that i have been dealing with is because of things I couldn't let go I never thought logically why I need this "poison" to keep infecting because my emotions have been blinding me with fake illusions. I guess wisdom comes with age I slowly begin realizing that I had to give up...

    Thankfully

    I am slowly healing. It takes time but I'm getting better. My scars are slowly fading. I am forgetting him. I am letting him go and moving forward. I am removing poisonous people from my life and starting over.

    Motions

    It's like im in a daze, kinda hard to say. I know where I've been and i know what feelings bring me back, so i don't ever position myself to ever end up feeling some type of way. A way that brings me back in time, and when my mind wants to remember, it wants to feel what it felt...

    It's second nature for me to be happy for him in whatever he does. I'm mending my relationship with my parents and aiming for the moon. It's going to be okay. :)

    Read This.

    Depression hit me so hard. I have scars on my arm to prove it. But the physical pain never will compare to the pain it inflicted upon my soul. I'm not even trying to be cheesy right now. The **** I'm saying, it's true, because I lived it. Depression crushed my essence, my very...

    I Crave Substantial Connections.

    I crave substantial connections.  Everybody needs them.  But some are more in touch with that truth than others.  Some pretend the shallow relations they have are enough.  If they were to peel the layers of self-deceit, they would discover that is not true.  But we lose our...

    Healing

      This profile is dedicated to my healing, which is slow, but I hope sure. Here, I don't want to hold back. I have a compelling drive to please and serve, which is partly what slows down the healing process. It is important to be caring for others, but it's important to...

    A New Life

    It is difficult to walk when until only a few years ago all you knew was to crawl. It is difficult to see when until only a few years ago all you knew was darkness. It is difficult to understand when until a few years ago all you knew was what you were told to. The scars that...

    This wonderful guy has been helping me heal. Truth is he has been for about thirteen years, I just never looked up to see how special he is. I had my heart broken rather harshly and he has helped me through it. I didn't think I would ever get over her but he has proved me wrong...
