    This also leads to my self esteem.

    After 3 kids, I ended up with a lot of saggy skin & stretch marks. It really makes me severely insecure. My husband doesn't make me feel better about them. He's not the father of the kids. I workout almost everyday. Hoping my fit body will make my ugly stretch marks less...

    My marriage is shattered.

    . Scattered in pieces all around me. I know I can't change it. I've done all I can do.. I'm trying so hard to accept it. I just want this empty void to close so I can feel something again. I want to smile again without having to force it. I'm try to accept the fact that it may...

    Just because you choose not to be with someone

    does not mean you don't love them. It means you knew love was not enough to make it work and it was a unhealthy relationship.. But now I am being called fake and cold for it? I can't change how people judge me but I suffer pain from leaving the relationship also.

    I am so very sad. Just found out my husband's

    best friend molested our adopted daughter. He also molested two of his granddaughters and his wife's sister. I just want to kill him. Not possible my health won't allow me to travel that far. Why do people have to be so cruel?

    I am a nice person, I live by the Golden Rule

    even when it doesn't serve me. It seems several people in my life do the opposite ALL the time. It's frustrating. My ex came to get the kids, I ended up feeding him and he took some "to go" items because dinner was ready and the kids asked if he could eat and if they could...

    In this world there are some people whose lives

    are just meant to help others and their help make the nothing to something but unfortunately that helper always stay nothing. What I mean is there are some people who help other but there is none to help them when they need someone.

    I am accepting the things I can not change.

    I'm accepting the loneliness, the heart ache, and the independence. I will learn to be strong on my own and blossom into the person I want to be. In times of sadness I will allow myself to wallow in my self pity until I feel like I'm back to normal. People do this all the...

    When my wonderful girl left me

    after almost 12 years, I was so hurt and shocked. Especially when I found out who she'd left me for. I had cancer when she left me. And I must admit that I had given up. When I left, I took our son with me. Not to hurt her, not for revenge, but because she had the girls, the...

    Accepting is never easy.

    I sometimes feel like life's no longer worth living for. I have bad family problems, my parents divorced when I was a kid and my friends seem don't care at all. I don't have anyone to listen my story so here I am. What should I do?

    I cannot change my past,

    I try to practice mindfulness.

    I go for walks, but I'm in tears after fifteen minutes from the pain in my joints. I focus on my breathing, but my chest feels tight; I can't get enough air and it hurts to breathe. I do yoga and try my best to maintain contentment, but the suicidal obsessions always come...

    Note to self: There's no point scratching

    and clawing at the gnarled and muddy banks of regret. The raft is rickety, the torrents run wild, any moment you could just capsize, hit a rock, sink like a stone. Hold on, for just around that bend things will settle and you'll allow yourself to drift on. You will build...

    I can't make anyone want me

    for who I am. All I can do is try. And if that don't work than I just have to accept the fact that weren't meant to be in the first place even if I wanted it to be. It's their lost and theirs nothing I can about it.

    I'm still working on the marriage issue.

    It's not going so well. Today my husband told me that he basically has been using his mom and everything else has an excuse for his behavior and said the real reason is that "he's never loved me as a wife". I don't even know how to respond to that or what to think. I've given...
