I Am Trying To Accept The Things I Cannot Change

But it's not easy! 12,813 People

    When I was 19 I got kicked out of college

    because my mom refused to support me. She never called and accused me of selling my body for tuition money. When I was just working really hard to have a good future. Eventually the school forced me to go home because I had no guardian to fill in my paperwork. It's been two...

    It isn't the easiest thing to do,

    it's definitely a learning process. There's a lot of things i wish i could change, especially my past but...i can't and i need to accept that and move on. I'm trying to accept that there's no such thing as perfection, that there's always going to be things that we don't want to...

    I used to be very cynical about the facts of

    life that I cannot change, I was always very angry and sad that no matter how hard I tried, there were some things that I couldn't change. But now, its different. Accepting that there are some things for which I cannot change, has made other aspects of my life more enjoyable...

    It follows me wherever I go.

    I've never invited it along and I can never tell it to leave. These memories have broken something inside me. I don't think I'll ever be happy again, but I'd like to be. I was young when these memories attached themselves to me. I'm forever haunted by the events that linger in...

    It's July 28th. It's been 167 days

    since we last spoke. Yes I'm still keeping track. But these days it's getting overwhelming. It might sound weird, but I'm proud of this streak of not talking to you. It makes me feel powerful or strong in some sort of way. I don't know. Maybe I'm just crazy.

    I will never have a normal family

    and I will never be loved by any of them. It's hard but I try to live with the pain every day.

    True love exist of its own volition.

    It can't be created or imagined, rushed or stopped, bought or sold. True love will feel and find its own path. I will follow and enjoy the journey!

    I can't change the fact my "mother" is insane

    and trying to get rid of me. I can't change my past. I can't change that I was attacked and raped. I can't change that destroyed my relationship. I can however change one thing. I can get clean of the drugs that have controlled me for so long.

    I'm 17, female, and I'm in love with a girl.

    We've been dating for 7 months and today her parents, who are strict Muslims, found out about us. I haven't been in contact with her since this morning because her phone and computer have been taken away. I'm going crazy not knowing the next time I'll here from her.

    Well you only need the light

    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...
