    How Ironic

    That I would come upon this group today.  My life feels so out of control right now.  I am not sure what I am doing from one day to the next.  What's it going to take?  How does one find the answer?  Does it come like a light that just goes on one day...

    Why do we hold on even

    though we know in our hearts the bitter truth? Why do we cling to a fake image that we have created in our minds even though we know the person we love is not what we have made it to be? Is easy to be blind and to cling to a false hope and sometimes when we finally wake up, we...

    I Know What I'm Not Doing...

    What I'm not doing is what I'm doing now. Being with my husband has been the tether (and how) that has anchored my decision-making over the past years. Take that away, and then what? I see possibilities everywhere. Where will I end up living? What career will I end up in, or...

    I Just Don'T Know What Went Wrong

    Lookie here. Another day of being an angsty 13-year old girl. Sitting in front of the computer having a pity party for myself. My stomach wrenches at how stupid and worthless I am. I wish I could escape from it all, but I'm too much of a coward to hurt myself. My childhood is...

    What Do I Do Next?

    I am not about to self pity myself. I am just confused and looking for what I want next. I have a great life, I'm not going to lie; but I'm bored. I am afraid of wasting my time at a meaningless job. I want to do something great. I am going to be important, I just have no idea...

    I'm 44 and I've never really known.

    Oh, at times I've THOUGHT I knew, but I didn't. I don't think we're really supposed to "get it" until we're breathing our last few breaths.

    I seems like whatever I used to live for has come to an end. I can't remember when I was ever motivated to do something and I have just lost the will to live. I find it difficult to do things for myself and I usually convince myself that may be doing stuff for others will make...

    It says here to write a title to my story. It's not easy when you cannot define things that you've done or where you want to go. I have never been one to dwell on things too much and have trusted that I can make it out of any situation by staying positive and working hard. If I...

    I started going to college, but I left that for the military. Right now I plan on leaving the military early to move on to something else. What that something else is, I don't know. But it seems no matter where I am I am never happy. I easily tire of the boys I am with. I don't...
