    Crossing over into a new year I'm wiping my

    slate clean. For now on I'm going to focus on positives no matter how many negatives come my way. Care less what others think of me. I know there's much more outside of my shell that I'm slowly breaking free from. I'm ready to show people just who I am no matter if they like it...

    I am starting over again,

    again. I have done this three times now. Every time I trusted someone and things sort of blew up in my face. I am a mess emotionally but I figure, everyone feels like a mess sometime in life. I'm 25 and I hit rock bottom, emotionally, again. I think all of it was my mistake. I...
