    Unhappy With Where You Are?

    Where we are in life is exactly where we want to be. Not necessarily because it's what we want but because it's good enough. When good enough isn't good enough anymore THAT'S when we start living :)

    Why Not Start By Listening?

    Call it what you will, but there is this part of you – an innate wisdom, if you will – that has tried and tried and tried to get you to stop and fix a part of you that broke a long time ago but you've told yourself that you either don't have enough money, don't have enough...

    I'm sure that I need better ways of coping

    than intentionally hurting myself on the inside and out rather than cut, burn, bite, scratch, drink, and bruise all of my problems away but at the same time it's been my only coping mechanism ever since I was seven and everybody has their own ways of coping with things and I don...

    With My Past

    I am having a VERY difficult time coping with my past. It eats me day by day. I fear that soon there will be no more me left... Not as in my physical body dying... I mean as my mental side, the side that makes me who I am, the good me, is going to soon wither away and disappear...

    I Keep Going

    Sometimes I have those moments where I just want to give up. It would be so much easier. The light at the end of the tunnel can seem so far away. On bad days I can lose hope that things will ever get better. What if I just sink lower and get worse? But I know I just have to dust...
