    Stuck In Limbo...

    I'm an 18 year old girl. I live with my mother and it's hell. I love my mom and she loves me but she over powers me and i have no say in anything. She's not taught me how to drive. I have no job and she's barely doing anything to help. I don't have any type of identification. I...

    Glass Ceiling To The Max

    I am dissatisfied with my life.  I want so much MORE out of life but can't get it, or don't know how to get it. If I had control over my life,  I'd have SO much more.   I feel like everything I get in my life is always my plan G choice.  Not even plan B...

    I Might As Well Be Mute- The woman

    who raised me planned out EVERYTHING in my and my sister's lives! She chose our schools refusing to send us to local public schools. She chose our clothes. She chose our haircuts. I know that's all stuff good parents do but she took it a step further. She never let us play...

    No Control

    They say there is an art to life. And I wonder if I have got it all wrong. I wonder if I have ever been happy. I thought I had. I thought I was living good. But it all came crashing down. You think you got control and fortuna shows her hand. Life just rolls along, a flood tide...

    Well I have really controlling parents.

    The upside is due to the fact they obsess over my grades my average is 100.039. The downside is well I really have no control. I do my chores, my homework and well I sit inside the house never speaking unless spoken too. I am not really allowed to hang out with my friends...

    I Thought I Was Trying To Get Control. The Outcome Is Not Happening

    I thought I was trying to get 'Control' of my Life. The 'Outcome' is not Happening the way I wanted it to be. I don't see this as that we really do have 'Control' of our Lives. How in the Hell did I start getting a Lower Back Ache this Week End? It's been bugging me for...

    Fate

    It is an absolute fact, I have no control over my life. I'm not down or depressed or unhappy, I just admit the fact. Years ago I came to the conclusion that the will or one's own means to intervene and steer events is only part of the game of life. The other half is beyond our...

    I Crave It

    I control my emotions. More often than not I don't react when insults are being slung in my direction. I control my weight. It's easy to make myself fat or better yet make myself skinny. I control my effort. Sometimes it's all there, and sometimes it simply isn't. But everything...
