I Am Trying To Accept The Things I Cannot Change

But it's not easy! 39,434 People

    My and my boyfriend were together 4 years

    and we love each other very much still as friends. I've moved on and kept my business to myself, he's now met someone awful who posts every detail of her life online and has a very bad reputation. I feel like I've made him a better person for someone who doesn't deserve him it's...

    I know you won't change what you are,

    though if you wanted to you might. Having just heard a familiar tone it makes me wonder why I bother.There's so much more out there to life than sitting here wishing you were too and knowing full well you aren't. Somewhere inside another part of me dies.I'll put it all back...

    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...

    I told my husband that out marriage is not

    working. We have been at war for what seems the entire span of our relationship and it's not improving. We separated briefly and I came back hoping for change but everything is still the same as it was.

    Accepting the fact that I can't change how much

    people care or not, no matter how much I care is one of the hardest things ever, but I'm learning to accept and move on. People take things for granted very easily these days, but that's life I guess. Sigh.

    I have a lot of bad habits I'd like to kick with

    both feet. At the end of the day though, I dont have a choice but to accept the things I'm incapable of leaving behind rather improve on the things I certainly can.

    I have been having problems with myself.

    And that has led to other problems. I grew up in such a terrible home. I grew up to violence by myself and by others, and I grew up with abuse, drugs, alcohol and other things a person shouldn't have to go through. Later in life it became more of a disaster because I couldn't...

    I cannot change my past,

    I was going through a tough part of my life

    and was very depressed an unfortunately self harming. Finally, I told my mom what I was doing and she cried so hard and blamed herself, and to this day it's still the toughest thing I've ever had to experience. The worst was the disappointment in myself and guilt I felt.
