    "Reality Bites"

    When I was a small child, all adults were honest and knew what they were doing.  My mom was a goddess that could do no wrong.  No matter what happened, there would be a roof over my head, electricity to power the appliances and food to eat.  It was just so.  Teachers held the...

     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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.
