    From Death To Life

    What did it feel like to suffer? To feel like I was being tortured day after day? I want to share it with those who ever wonder if they'll make it through whatever's hurting them. I want you to know that you're not alone. Because when I suffered, no one was there to hold my hand...

    Looks Can Be Deceiving

    Look at the people around you, the one with the smile on their faces, the rich and popular, the carefree and indifferent, then there's the emo and Gothic, the ones that always wears black, the rebel of the group, the defiant of life itself, the ones that suck up on self pity from...

    And That's Okay

    Yes, I've suffered.  I've been hurt in a lot of ways by a lot of different people.  And that's okay.I'm safe now, and choosing every day to let it go.  I know that holding on to bitterness will only harm me.  It won't do doodly to the people that hurt me.  So I choose to let...

    I Do It To Myself!!!!

    I sure have.... I've spent a good portion of my life in pain. I've done plenty of suffering as the result of being mistreated... by many people... on many different levels. What's even worse though, as I am almost too ashamed to admit, is the pain and suffering I cause myself...

    I Guess It Could Have Been Worse

    If there's one thing I've learned, its that we all have known suffering. Nonetheless, at times I can't help but wish my suffering hadn't been so prolonged or at least that it was of a different nature. What do you do when those responsible for your suffering are the ones that...

    They Said It Was Depression

    Sometimes baggage can be locked up for a long time and, even though the keys to that baggage can be opened with a key so that you can deal with it, some of us seem to have no strength to turn it in the bag. 33 years ago my wife at the time asked to separate so that she could...

    The Blackness Inside

     Yes i would have to say that I have known suffering.I grew up living in domestic violence,watching my father slowly drive my mother to think that attempting suicide would be the only chance off escaping him. I hated seeing him treat her like that, and  hated...

    Some things are better learned through pain,

    and through suffering its when we break, we fall and learn to stand tall. From suffering, we get to discover new things about ourselves that we might have never known before, suffering has the ability to just turn the other sides of us, to show us different things in different...

    My Guess

    I'm guessing at this point we've all known suffering to some extent. I don't know that it matters if Suzie Q got more licks with the belt than Bobbie growing up as it just seems the thought of it at all would suck. Not going to make a list here of the kicks I've had but...

    All i am going to say about it is i have learned there are worst things in life then death. Pains so bad you would welcome death, but even so i would still fight to stay alive.

    Why...

    Why did I lose so many people? Why did 4 of my siblings die? Why am I still here? Why do I have so much pain? Why did I survive? Why do I suffer? Why can't I be fixed? Is this my fault? What did I do? Should I have died along with the rest?

    I don't think it's possible to compare pain. Your pain. My pain. His pain. Her pain. Their pain. Everyone experiences it differently. Just because someone doesn't show how broken they are doesn't mean that person's life is dandy.I have an issue with that. People telling me that...

    Again

    Here I am again in the psych hospital. I'm not ashamed because it is probably the safest place for me at the moment. I lived a childhood of abuse, physical, emotional, spiritual from my mother with a father who was mentally ill and so wrapped up in his own issues and need for...
