    Unfortunately.

    I just recently made the most difficult decision of my life. It was sooo hard on me and when I needed my close girl friends most, no one was there for me other than my very best friend. I thought that we were so close and that they would be here for me no matter what. I was...

    But As of Right Now _ I Am Counting On Me!!!

    Starting this moment - I am standing firmly, proudly and strongly on these two feet. No more meekness - no more resentments - no more excuses.  I am taking back my life - and that is an empowering feeling.  For my EP friends on here that have talked to...

    Yeah, There Are Those Times

    Like, you know, you thought they could be there for you, but they can't. Like, all you need is someone who can listen, someone who won't judge at that moment, & yet, it still happens. You feel helpless, and alone. and it's disappointing, frustrating, but it usually happens.
