    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...

    A Father Ignored

    My father was never really apart of my life. He was there in the household but he was never what a father should be when it comes to being involved with their child. Now several years later in an apartment on my own, he apologizes and asks for forgiveness. How am I supposed to...

    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.

    About two months ago,

    my boyfriend of 7 years left me unexpectedly for one of my close friends. Today is his birthday. I'm struggling to be the better person, to be kind regardless of the pain and suffering he has caused me. I sent him an e-mail. It simply read, "Happy Birthday, I wish you well." I...

    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...

    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...

    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. :)

    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...

    His Work Of Art

    He works diligently - never giving up. Sorting through the debris seeking anything salvageable. Gently piecing together those things that can be mended. Discarding those which cannot. He stitches. He tacks. He cements. He works long into the night molding all the pieces together...

    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...
