I Am Working On Becoming a Better Me

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 457 People

    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...

    Change

    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...

    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...

    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 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 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 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...

    Because It Matters!!!

    The decision to become a better person is or can be the most important decision that you can make. I realize that life can be so much simpler if you focus on making someone elses day or making the world a better place. You will begin to notice that life has more to...

    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...
