I 'm Ready For Change

    Change is something that I fear,

    as it swallows up the past and becomes something different. But even though i fear it, I also desire it to change as a person and become a whole of myself. As if a puzzle and its pieces asking "Is this what I want?" And accepting that it's for the better of me and others. Change...

    I have recently graduated

    and going to officially start a career. I have been single most of my life and want a serious relationship. I have been scared most of my life and know it's up to me to do something about it or it will never change.

    I need to stop lowering my standards.

    I need to start having more self respect. I am a funny, caring, kind, and beautiful girl. I don't need to settle for anything less than what I want/what is good for me. I'm not saying I'm going to be stuck up about my boyfriends in the future but I need to stop dating all these...

    The White Male: I'M Intrigued.

    So lately... I would say, since I've been working at the casino, I have developed this massive, uncontrollable attraction to white men. Something about them.. Maybe it's the innocent approach they give when they come to my window to cash their chips. Maybe it's the way they look...

    I'm ready to embrace the single life.

    I'm done crying. He may have left me but in truth I was alone for at least the last three years of our marriage. I didn't have to mourn the "death" of my marriage as I did that throughout the ten years we were together. What I mourned was the death of my hopes and dreams...

    I was ready for a change.

    But all the things that "changed" were not that satisfying. So I decided to take up zumba and I feel so great now! It was a small change, but as it turns out, It was all I needed.

    I Don't Think It'll Ever Change.

    My mother told me the other day, after one of her drunken episodes, that my siblings will always think me as a child. It did bother me because I know that it's true, and no matter what I do, or try to do, they won't ever see me as a grown adult. Sure, they'll look at my age, and...

    family and friends, who keep telling me I deserve better, that if I want him to change, I need to give him a choice. To choose his family, over his partying, or to leave. I never expected that we wouldn't be his choice.. And I guess that's what hurts the most. If you start to...

    This just isn't cutting it, and I'm starting to loose my mind I swear. So instead of playing the poor me why me game I'm gonna get up, and brush myself off. Made a promise to myself that from now on things are gonna be different.
