    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 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 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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 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'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.
