    Advance Notice

    Whenever I have left any employment, neighbourhood or a party I have always said “Goodbye”.  I think it is good manners; you form bonds – not always pleasant ones true, but bonds nonetheless.  You don’t just disappear without a word. I’ve not been here long and have...

    I Make My Choices and Live With What Comes Back

    I can't imagine living in such a bubble that the state of my life is everyone else's fault but my own.  This life is mine and no one else's. I choose what I want, need and do with every moment I have here. Now as I embark on the second half of a life now cherished as a...

    What A Choicy World.

    We are cruel, but we can be the kindest creatures you will ever meet. Life is this fragile entity, or is it nothing but a state of mind. Do we fabricate what we want to see or feel. Is anything of this even real? Choices are all that we have in this world. We can choose to give a...

    We are all on a path. There are many . . . some lead to rewarding and healthy lifestyles and some initiate a life of misery and few options. We choose a path early in life thinking it's the correct one for us; it is based partly on our thoughts of what is an appropriate and...

    I Am A Human Female

    We have choices, we can choose, we don't need anyone to do it for us, we are capable to make our choices, even if they're wrong they are our choices! How many times have you made a poor, even a stupid choice? Can you still count them without using your toes as well as your...

    I think of all of the directions I could go

    with my life. And it seems that in any direction I take part of myself will be compromised. I'll never be able to make every aspect of myself happy. Life is just a combination of your decisions. Some inspire happiness for a point of time but the feelings are still there. The...

    Ultimately, I Do

    There are so many small things, I don't have a choice over because my husband is controlling and feels he needs to have the say on most all things, even if it has nothing to do with him. But I like to think that at the end of the day, I do ultimately have control over my choices...

    Some Good Some Bad

    The point is, they are my choices, I own them. I don't let others decide what is best for me because in all fairness to their desire to perform a good deed, no one knows what is best for us as individuals but us. If I make a choice today, I know that I can live with the...

    I'm a leader not a follower.

    I do what I think is best for my life not what other people say.

    And More Importantly...

    take responsibility for those decisions, I don't seek scapegoats for my mistakes or point the finger of blame away from myself.

    Why I'm Here

    I came here because my life is very depressing and I have no friends and nobody to talk to. My social phobia is so bad I get anxiety even when I have to be around family. I figure if I joined the site I could find more people like me and find some ways to cope or even break the...
