    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...

    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. ...

    I Can Not Own What Is Not Mine

    I have begun to realize through self discovery ( and the support of so many here ), that I can not be everything for everybody. I have to take time for me. One of the things I gave up years ago was my music. I spent hours and hours practicing, composing; I had...
