I Got Smacked In the Face By Reality

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 255 People

     Now i just love the poster for this group, this what-was-that look is just so cute, and cruel, 'so you thought you owned the world, child, now you'll know better!' I had this look over my face a few times, but i must say sometimes reality had caresses to offer. And I guess...

    .

    I still remember the way his long, messy hair felt against my skin as he clung to me. I felt his tears on my fingertips. Suddenly he seemed much smaller. Much younger. "Please hold me," he whispered. And I held him. I held him for hours, and I can almost remember the exact words...

    Lots Of Times!

    Ouch!

    There's a time where every young person thinks they know everything and can do anything, then get hit with a dose(s) of humility and reality. It still hurts, but I'm stronger because of it.

    Reality Bites

    Fortunately, I pack quite a punch myself... I totally won that battle. Reality bites but imagination kicks butt! Thank God for blessing me with a creative mind when life gets hard.

    Talk Is Cheap, Actions Speak Louder Than Words.

    Talk truly is cheap. Deception is apparently an art, and some are much better better artists than others. I've known some pretty good artists. Some find it so easy to rattle off pretty poetic eloquent loving words without any substance to back them. Words not backed by actions...

    When She Said...

    Does your father sexually abuse you? Reality hit me like a ton of bricks and I suddenly realised what was happening to me, what I had done, what I had been scared off all those nights. Reality smacked me one, and I knew that my life would never be the same again. Oh how right I...

    "Reality Bites"
