    That Missing Puzzle Piece

    Looking through the others posts, here, I can totally relate to how you're all feeling, as I feel it too. Being in a room full of people and feeling like I'm there alone. You're not the only ones who feel that way. There are just many of us afraid to come out and say it. I've...

    I Don't Know What It Is

    Ever since I was in the third grade, being alone in my house was the greatest feeling in the world. There was no one to yell at me or talk to me like I'm idiot. I could just play music and video games without a care in the world. Even with people around I feel alone because I...

    My Name Is Mike.

    My name is Mike. As I'm writing this, I’m just two months away from turning 32 years old. The idea to write this book has been on my mind for a few years now. I always wanted to share my observations as a fat man in a skinny man’s world, but I was never motivated enough to...

    I've Never Felt Whole

    I had a difficult childhood. I was forced to grow up way too fast, my mother was always jumping from mood to mood and I felt responsible for my younger siblings. I don't remember a time where I felt truly calm and cherished growing up. Things were always chaotic and I ended up...

    I once stepped out of my comfort zone

    and expanded my reach. I grasped onto something that felt good. I tried to make it mine but it wasn't mine to be had. I had to let go. I've since then come back into my bubble, but now the area inside is bigger. Too big for simply me. It leaves me longing for something I can...

    Something Is

    I used to be so content in my life and then everything fell apart. I was worth something. Now? Not so much. I know what's missing. Purpose and meaning. I had a family and was the central core and now? Husband is off with another and my kids are all grown with kids of their own. I...
