I Changed When I Learned The Truth

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 546 People

    Mirror on the wall. Tell me what you see.

    I Changed Many Times... For The Worst Most The Time

    I changed when she lied to us about the divorce, then changed again dressed in confusion when I found out the truth... I changed when I found the truth that drugs can distort your reality. I changed when I found out I was a drug addict, getting high wasn't for fun it was to live...

    I Had A Dream

    Bittersweet Symphony

    I think I was born into this world with great cards to play with, not the best, just great. I had been given a family who loved me, some looks but not the finest. I had been given athletic genes, I have stamina, strength - but can't grow big muscles fast. I have been given a what...

    Sharing A Life With Somone Is Far Different Than Them Completing Yours...

    I guess I changed when the realization that a single individual can't complete another person, finally kicked in. They can only make them better, improve them, or in the words of the lyrical "genius" that is Beyonce: upgrade them. I guess that's what they had in mind when they...

    It's complicated. I was young,

    open-minded, curious, alive. I figured out I was a therian. I kind of got to know myself more, I changed. I turned into this dark, sadistic, self loathing thing because I didn't know how to feel about myself. Also, everything that's happening in the world. War, starvation...
