I Believe Its Our Experiences That Make Us Who We Are

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 836 People

    I do believe this. I've had failed relationships

    and I've learnt a great deal from them. I think you have to experience the bad to appreciate the good. You learn to choose your battles rather than wading in to a full scale War. You appreciate the small things and value them. You can understand other peoples pain because you...

    It Is What We Think About Our Experiences That Make Us Who We Are!

    The map is not the territory. We can think and feel any way we choose about an experience, that in it self is what shapes us. If you are unhappy with where you presently are in life start seeing it differently and changes begin to happen almost effortlessly. Don't allow people...

    How You Respond

    Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have - life itself.Walter...

    Listening To Iris.

    I break down. I want to scream. I want to bleed. I want to cry. I would rather have pain than have to bear this deafening silence. My life is flying away before me and yet I am going nowhere. That moment when I realize that this is all for nothing. School. Relationships...

    All Of Our Life Experiences Form Us!

    Form the time we are born until the time we die. All of the things we experience make us whom we are. Only you can change yourself for the better or worse from those experiences no matter how bad or great the experience was! Only you! Ask Nelson Mandela!!!

    I believe my past has made me the person I am

    today. A lot of bad things have happened. And those things have made me a stringer person and it's made me wiser. Those experiences have changed my outlook on the world and without them I wouldn't be the strong resilient person I am today.

    Life

    I have made a lot of mistakes in my life. However, I would not take back any of them. These mistakes are what create our personality. They give us backbone, and wisdom. The older I get the more I realize that I am perfect the way I am. I do not need to please anyone or allow...

    She Loves Me

    Today is my birthday. I suppose I'll get a little bit of recognition for it but I really do like to keep things simple. Coming up, it was never a tradition in our family to celebrate birthdays with too much enthusiasm. Though I don't think the lack of fanfare was because of a...
