    Where Are You Spont?

    I remember the new exciting and spare of the moment challenges I would take on. It was always a question if there was enough time to get everything done in a day. I had no problem accepting and doing. Now have it a downfall from excitement and do not want to accept any new...

    Ever since third grade,

    my personality went from outgoing to zero. I don't know whether it's because of the fear I was harboring at my math teacher that time, like the way she constantly humiliated and stabbed me with her self-confidence wrenching words. Or because of my mother's constant insults she...

    Sometimes I feel so weak inside

    and I just wanna cry. But bc I know it won't make my situation better I jut keep pressing forward. Sometimes I'm extra happy that I was given the opportunity to see the truth about people in my life; other times I just want to go back to being blind and give in. I miss so much...

    I really miss who I was.

    I was never this sad or down. I used to have lots of friends who cared about me, now it's just me, myself & I. I hate this.

    Sometimes I wish I had the courage to be

    who I want to be again unlike who I am now trying to be. My youthful innocence was nice.

    I went through a mentally

    and emotionally abusive and controlling relationship for a year and a half and finally got out of it and it opened my eyes to the world, how it works, and my place in it. I guess I miss the carefree, Innocent, trusting person I was before it.
