    The time for change has come. I ended a seven year relationship with a very bad boyfriend who I now realized manipulated and abused me to the point, I had no self-confidence and was honestly contemplating suicide. The heart break still hurts. I miss him like crazy, but I would...

    Paradigm Shift

    I joined Experience Project several months ago, at the cusp of my transition to university. It's very humbling to read back on that first post that I made; I was a scared, confused eighteen-year-old, with no idea of her purpose or value. If I had the capacity to speak to my...

    I guess it's just a way of growing up.

    It's tough growing up extremely poor but coming from this part of my life I have learned to give and love. My parents are my motivation for me to become better. What they did for me I want to give in return.

    I have felt like a loser

    for a long time, because I have made nothing of my life, and I am ashamed of that. But I want to become successful and happy, and for others to be proud of me, and to be proud of myself.

    I honestly love who I am becoming.

    I was SO SO sad last year, and I never let myself be who I truly was. I was bullied a ton in high school, and just kinda floated through hoping it would quickly end. It finally ended and I began college with one person who I went to high school with, she was really holding me...

    I'm focused on becoming a better me.

    Than lashing out and blaming others for the weaknesses I may have. i.e. temper. I have decided that I won't allow anyone or anything to have that much power over me to ruin my day or to alter the smile I place on my face... looking forward to becoming a better me...

    My worse behavior is cutting people off my life.

    I don't know why i give up on any kinds of relationships easily. I don't want to feel reluctant, uncomfortable around those people. I am just selfish so that is why i only think about myself. Sometimes, i just think i would be better without these people. Or i think i feel...

    Who Am I?

    One thing that I believe is really important in life is to know who you really are.  Not someone that someone else wants you to be.  For the past 3 years I feel like I have lost who I really am.  I tryed to be the person he wanted me to be. ...

    When I was in high school I went through some

    intense drama one summer and had a huge falling out with friends. I went through a lot of internal ups and downs but in the end one of the things I thought was I could either lay down and take it or I could be proactive and do something about it. So slowly but surely I started...

    I don't think any body should ever stop trying

    to be a better person. It doesn't mean you're not a good person the way you are. Just that you could always find another way to help out, or another way to make the world better.

    I am truly working on the becoming the best me
