    depression, lack of self worth, perfectionism, shame, no self confidence, guilt, and more for my entire life. Yesterday I found this actual classification that fits me like a glove, because I was trying to explain what my mother was doing but couldn't find the words to explain...

    Into The Alcoholic Pit And Emerging

    If anyone has described concisely his descent into alcoholism, I have yet to hear it. Words to describe the hopelessness, helplessness and hellishness of that downward spiral still elude me. Also as elusive are the words to describe recovery, emerging from the fog and seeing...

    I really hope this isn't the last year of my

    life (I have no reason to believe it will be). I'd hate to think my last year on earth was filled with stress over a job I hate.

    So I dated a guy who I had very strong feelings

    for. I also had a close friend that I trusted. Well when he dumped me he hooked up with my friend. I took it hard at first but then I realized I was okay. If someone doesn't want to be with you or doesn't care enough about you to not hurt you, or at the very least be honest with...

    The last thing you should loose in life is hope.

    I have hope that tomorrow will be a better day and that I'll look back at this sour time in my life and be able to take this as a lesson.

    I often wanted to solve everyone's problems!

    I never wanted anyone to hurt like I did. I have learned through counseling that you have to set boundrys and live in the here and now. Don't jump 5 months ahead. Keep your mind clear by dealing with the problems as they come and take care of what's important to you. In my...

    Hope Still There...

    I sit in my windowsill bright yellow-orange maple leaves wafting off the nearby tree. A few sparrows dive out of this tree pretending they too are falling for winter. Their weight gives them 'way, these rock-like sky-divers strut-stuttering after a claw-screetched landing...

    The Last Bit Left

    The last bit of hope left in me I am putting it on the healing of planet earth. Paradigms will shift, a reorganization will occur. These may take a long time. I am hopeful and confident that our dear Gaia will find back its glory.Peace & Light,Sapphire
