    She Hasn't Grown Up And Never Will, But I Love Her!

    The little girl in me hasn't grown up and I do know why. She's still hurt, afraid and feels lonely. She is the part of me that split off when I was at her age, thanks to my miserable abusive parents. I didn't understand when she took over at times, but now that we've arranged...

    I know what I really want for Christmas. I want my childhood back. Nobody is going to give me that … I know it doesn’t make sense, but since when is Christmas about sense anyway? It is about a child of long ago and far away, and it is about a child of now. In...

    Still A Kid

    Many people in real life think that I am mature because I act proper and try to make the right decisions. I interact well with adults and seem focused. I have decent grades and have a high potential for success. I didn't goof around much and act like most of my peers do. ...

    On My Own

    I am now 18. Inevitably, I'll have to adjust to the change I will soon encounter, but still, I am hesitant. This is all I've ever known and although I REALLY want to get on with my life I am unsure if I will be able to handle all of this on my own.

    I'm Not Sure She Ever Will.

    The little girl in me is definitely still there. The side of me that still wants to be adored and cuddled and tucked into bed each night. The part that wants to lie in my bedroom floor with my crayons and color in coloring books. The child with the unruly brown hair, laying in...

    As A Little Girl I......

    Got away with all manner of things where my parents were concerned! I still do, and my parents still don't lecture me about the things I do, people I see. I think gone way a person develops should be guided by parents but in a very relaxed way, to coax rather than berate.
