    for years, it all stems from a pretty rough upbringing, but then I suppose in getting off topic. I have been in a relationship with my partner for all most four years now, and just over a year into our relationship, i decided to share my struggle and my pain with him. Anyone...

    The Only Reality

    I need to be a different person. I need to get real. I shouldn't let anyone think i'm weak or vulnerable or an easy target. I'm too nice to people and they think its weakness. NO. I'm done being nice. When people have bad intentions, you can't read them at their faces, its...

    Today I read a lovely

    Changes!

    I've learned a lot about myself here lately. For instance, I don't like being accussed of things I don't do, I don't like others assuming that "sorry" fixes everything, I don't like my feelings being tucked away because I'm too nice to share them, I don't like being ignored or...

    My life right at this moment is bad.

    I feel like my mom hates whatever I do. She always picks on me and doesn't let me go places. All the opportunities I had came and went away. She always finds to yell at me for. Now let's talk about my whole family. I tend to be very anti social at times. I've been really close...

    For the first time ever I'm going to change a

    part of me that needs to be changed. I have a demon but I don't want him, he is so bad I would rather cut myself the rest of my life than have him with me anymore, that's how distressful this thing is. It's shameful and must go.
