    But Really...

    i suppose we really COULD choose to just up and quit.  i mean, if i really wanted to, i could just give up...  but the thing of it is, too many people have too much riding on me.  if it were just myself, i can see myself quitting.  but it is not.  i have...

    Over and Over Again...with Feeling

    I was born to parents with middle class aspirations and a clear vision of what they wanted to provide for me. I was kept warm and safe and dry. I knew my limits with them and I was definitely loved. How I came to be so filled with dread and self-doubt is a mystery to me. I...

    Learned It a Long Time Ago

    Never give them a chance to get over on you was one of the first things I was taught a very long time ago.  The day you stop trying is the day you need to sit down, curl up in a ball and cease to exist.  OK so it didn't work the first time so just walk back, look at the...

    My ex and I are trying trying to date again,

    we're trying to go do different things that we've never done before to make it even more fun for us. Usually, every time we try to be with eachother we argue about small things such as, trying to help eachother out, talking to much, overreacting a lot, on the phone to much...

    Keep It In

    You know it's funny how a smile can hide everything you feel inside. I don't really tell people how I feel. I just keep it all in. Even the things that have happened to me in the past are still inside my head. I act like I'm OK when I'm not . I know I should say something and...

    Keep "Fighting"

    I'll always keep fighting and never give up on the one that I love. Sometimes he's distant and he never says he loves me. He's in love with someone else. Yet he cant live without me. He cries if I say I'm going away. Maybe one day he'll love me and be with me forever. But no...

    It's All That I Do.

    I try, It's what I do. If I didn't try, I'd be nowhere, and I'm somewhere, even if the place is unknown. Trying is my only and best suit. It's all I can do. If I didn't try, oh man... who knows where I'd be? I'd be nowhere, with nothing, alone, with nobody. But since I try, and I...

    Don't Give Up

    Life is very difficult at times. I have friends and a good job...but I live alone. Some tasks seem insurmountable for a SWF. I am just learning to rely on self for most things...not used to it yet. I know it will be much easier with the passage of time.

    I Had That Moment Again

    I started to get down on myself and try to drown myself in self-loathing again. BUT I kept thinking of the things I HAVE accomplished in the last two weeks. I have a really really unrealistic view of things. I have also fed the thing in me that says 'you suck'. I need to stop...

    Practice Makes Perfect

    I Could Lie Down & Sob

    That is something I have seen grown men be reduced to before. I just keep on keeping on. Every single thing I was ever at one time convinced was never going to get better did, so I fall back on that when I need reassurance.

    Don't Quit

    Well, I Am Heading the Right Direction

    One Day At a Time

    One step at a time ... move forward. Try and try again to complete that job or achieve that dream. When knocked back, move forward again. When knocked down, get up and move on. Always forward. Always try. For when you stop ... it's over.
