    I won't expect others to enjoy my company

    until I first learn to enjoy my own.

    Most of the time, I am able to be a positive

    person no matter what pain is swirling around inside. After a ten year battle with depression, I have mastered the art of faking a smile. But when I am in the war of my life and a real bad day comes- I hideaway and ride out the storm alone. I don't want to be a bother to anyone...

    I have had a few good days.

    My kids always tend to help when I'm down. I'm very hopeful of the future. I have a good plan now. I'm reaching out into a few endeavors to do some things I've wanted to do with some help from a good friend. I'm actually excited to see what life will be like this time next month...

    Well just left the gym.

    . My goal is at least 15 min everyday.. Walking to my vehicle I looked in the western sky and saw a bright star and just a sliver of the moon. I thought how like my heart the moon is. And how now the only thing left is the sliver but I have hope that someday it will be full again...

    Sometimes I wake up and I feel like this should

    be the end, its been a while since I felt that way and I hate to be back. But I try to find solutions for myself. I do things to make me feel good physically and mentally. One day I'll be the person I'm meant to be, I will feel satisfied with life and I will feel like I'm on the...

    I need to start doing this more now

    as I was stupid I had invested so much of myself into this one special woman who told me to look out for myself but I thought it was for life she was the one but now I am a mess yet again from now on its about me and protecting my stupid fragile emotions.

    So, I thought I'd try something new- something

    I've never done before! I need to have a place to vent- to say what I need to say out loud, but don't have the courage to talk about to anyone who knows me. I'm hoping by being here- I can help strengthen myself, and maybe regain a little bit of confidence! I hope!

    As I get older I'm learning more

    and more to be myself.... I don't only live to please others, to take care of others, to make everyone else happy....Sometimes I have to be a little selfish...to think of ME first..... After all, this journey is mine.... And the clock is ticking

    I want to be mature and be confident of myself.

    Back then, people would always tell me that I'm annoying and it would hurt me a lot. At times, I would just stop talking to them and then avoiding them as much as possible. After I got rejected by my crush, I felt like a loser and cried myself to sleep last night. So its still a...

    And I really mean it this time,

    I'm not as sad as usual. I'm on a mini-vacation with a few random people and two of my closest friends. Lately I haven't been so cheerful due to some intense stress and for me to be able to not feel totally dead inside, while we are partying is a great step forward...

    I loved you. And you destroyed me.

    As it turns out, this was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. Because you destroyed me, I was able to build myself back up.

    Everyday. Without fail.

    I want to learn more and more, I want to have read more than everyone else, I want to improve my personality. Every single day I try and try and make me better. It looks like it'll be for nothing.

    In fact, the last ten years of my life have been one great adventure, most of it not very good. Now that I am older with the mistakes of my past behind me, I am trying very hard to better myself, but it is difficult some days to say the very least. One minute (or one day) I am...

    I've been thinking about completely changing my

    life. By that, I mean changing my entire situation - mostly my job, but possibly my location depending on how my situation turns out. It's kind of terrifying. I'm no stranger to trying new things, but I'm also no stranger to those things being complete failures. It's a risk. I...
