    I am writing this here

    as an experience because asking questions limits you to 120 characters which isn't enough at all. Anyway. I am a young adult, always smiling, but I don't think I'll ever be more depressed and sad.... This past summer I went to a 3 day camp. I really enjoyed it.. Last 10 mins...

    I'm having trouble in life making new friends.

    I fear my past has damaged my way of socializing. I know that's probably true for a lot of people but whatever. I have a lot of regrets and I'm just feeling overwhelmed to the point where I feel low.

    Everyday I think about being thin again.

    I am carrying twins right now. I have gained 30 lbs so far... I know my kids will be worth it. but it's hard for me to keep my anxiety in check. I know it's important to gain for them- but, I miss being thin, being in control. eating disorders suck. but, I gotta keep on...

    My life's a lot more complicated

    than I let a lot of people know, so when people call me names or judge me, I don't let it get to me. They don't know me or what i've been through, or what i'm going through right now. Don't judge people unless you really know what's going on in their life.

    it's too easy to judge someone.

    I've made that mistake before, but many make it about me too. If only people were all genuinely trying to get to know someone else, out of pure friendship!

    If people judge me without getting to know me,

    or still misjudge me when they do get to know me, they aren't really my friends anyway and I don't need to give them any more of my time.

    If you really think about it,

    To see me, doesnt mean you know me.

    To meet me, doesnt mean you know everything about me. I am a very deep and complex person and if you only knew the trek I made to make to where I am, you would have a better understanding of who I am and why I am the way I am.

    than that of someone else. But it is important, how you feel, what it does to you and how you deal with that. Each of us has to fight with his own demons. The only difference is how we handle it? fight or give up?! Only that's what matters. Because experiences can make you weak...
