I Am Trying To Accept The Things I Cannot Change

But it's not easy! 23,779 People

    When you're only 17 seems

    that you cannot do much to change things around you, so you just have to accept them. And sometimes it's so hard to deal with that!

    I came across this site yesterday

    as I had nobody to talk to, talking to friends - besides the fact I recently isolated myself...they don't really understand and maybe I'd just bring them down, and talking to professionals - maybe back into psych ward. The main reason is because although I have always thought...

    My boyfriend and I were together

    for nearly 10 years. He was the first and only man I've ever loved, and the first man to ever tell me he loved me. Shortly after exchanging those three little words (with a very big meaning), he cheated on me. Instead of leaving him, I stayed, though I had misgivings. But I...

    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?

    for him even though he dropped me like I was nothing. He moved on deleted me off his Facebook but still continues to like my photos and follow me in Instagram. I can't help but hope that the girl he is with now breaks his heart.. I feel awful wishing that. All because I didn't...

    Accepting the things I cannot change,

    does not mean that I like them. It means that I let go of the idea, that I am in control of other people. places or things, Or that I even should be. I don't always make good choices, for myself, so the idea that I know what is best for other people is very arrogant. I still...

    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 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...

    And I hope it will make me stronger,

    more humble, more loving and happier. Yes it means I have to push my own needs to the side at this moment in time but I try too look at that as doing something good for a greater cause. Even that in itself will make me a better person.
