    My Life

    I grew up in a very poor family. We didn't have proper water supply, the water we had was from a well and the roof was often leaking after rains. We had no bedroom. My father changed jobs often. Sometimes he was unemployed. It was hard for him to find a good job as he doesn't...

    I was abused and molested by my father

    for 8 years. My mother never realized it because she was so stuck on her failing marriage. At school I was bullied. Made to be a freak because of my deformity and because my family was poor. We got most of our food from the church and from my hunting and fishing. I chased tail...

    I came from a home of brokeness & bitterness.

    But, sometimes there was laughter. And, when there was, it was the purest, most honest laughter any human being could muster. I was born in Terrell, TX. Life wasn't the worst there. Meaning, there were beara.ble moments. My extended family were country-intelligent, if you get my...

    I recently opened up to my best friends mother

    about my life. I made her cry and she told me that I needed to see a therapist. Should I be a little offended that after four years I'm just now opening up to her and she says I need therapy?

    it's hard to say my past.

    but when I do tell you. it means your special and that I trust you. When I look at my past I see a broken heart, regret, pain, and suffering. but when I look in the mirror I see a strong confident girl ready to take on the world.

    I read a poem one which really encapsulates my

    life. In one part, it goes; Life for me ain't been no crystal stair. It's had tacks in it, And splinters, And boards torn up And places with no carpet on the floor- Bare. But all the time I'se been a ' climbing on. Well, there you have it. I was born in a shelter for battered...
