    I had an eating disorder

    as an athlete. I lost my friends, the trust only fmaily, and myself. I no longer play national tennis tournaments or get straight A's in school. I no longer love life. I feel like I lost the part of myself that actually loved living and not just surviving.

    For with God nothing will be impossible (Luke

    1:37). There yet is hope for you in Christ. Whatever your problem may be, and however seemingly grave the situation miay be, it is nothing to the Age of Ages. There yet is hope for you in Christ. All other things are void of actual help. Some may help in soothing the problem...

    That pit in your stomach

    when you don't want to go to work, when you would rather be ANYWHERE but there. When you would really like to tell them to F off but you're trying to keep your heart right with the Lord!

    At some point between birth

    and now, I have blocked off whatever part of me would allow me to ever truly ever be myself. I try to search for it often, but I am constantly met with the catacombs that have become my brain. Wish me good luck in traversing these catacombs.

    I'm glad to be alive part of me... I don't know how to explain the reason why but it's like I woke up one day and everything I loved doing seemed gone. No one really understands me anymore and I have changed in so many ways that sometimes I hate the person I've become... but...

    I think as we get older,

    and we learn more, we all lose certain things. It isn't a bad thing; sometimes parts disappear so we evolve into stronger people, full of wisdom. Hopefully, we, in turn, share it with others, and can help people. This is a wish I have, that the things that have happened in my...

    05.1995 that I had the accident while at work and got my hand stuck in machinery. Do I miss my right index finger. To be honest of course I do as who wouldn't. At first after I had the accident I was depressed as people kept staring at my hand but do you know what I got over it...

    that is your absence. I thought I knew how to swim. Loving you has been the most difficult thing to face this past 3 months. Everyone thinks I'm crazy. No one understands that a love like this rarely happens. I won't find this again. It's not just a piece of my heart you obtain...

    I lost part of myself.

    I'm finding it hard to be happy with who I am & who I'm with anymore. Used to be the one to make everyone laugh now I'm so full of self doubt that I can't even fake a smile. I don't know how to get back.

    if your love doesn't happen to come to "Lived Happily Ever After" and you have a heart ache in love because the person you really thought would be their 24*7 around you and will pamper you, will prioritize you suddenly happened to have lost all interest in you. No you don't die...

    I used to gas up the car and just freaking go. I visited places that I was curious about all the time. Once, on a holiday weekend, I packed a cooler of Dr. Peppers, some sandwiches, cashed my check and took off to Chicago, just to try real Chicago style pizza. It was a ten hour...

    Haven't we all, be it good,

    or bad? People are like waves, and touch our lives for only a short while? Perhaps, it was my honesty, or your need to fly. Whatever the reason, I will fondly remember the things we've shared, and if you return, my arms of friendship will always be open to you.
