    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...

    It's been a little while

    since I wrote an experience here and I wanted to write about something positive instead of the depressing ramblings I do from time to time. But like the title I am working on becoming a better me. My state of mind fluctuates from day to day life and still being homeless or...

    I am truly working on the becoming the best me

    as possible. I am the type of person that has put others before myself and I am aware I do this, so, I have to find a happy medium somewhere between bettering myself and still being able to help people without the selfish factor coming into play. People tell me at some point...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 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 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.
