    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 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...

    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 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...

    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 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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    It's cool when you get to a place when you're excited about working out instead of it feeling like a chore or obligation. The added energy is also a plus.
