    I Keep Going

    Answer: One bite at a time, lol :) While it may seem that everything that's causing you so much pain and sorrow is like a big, giant elephant, why not try tackling it one itsty, bitsy bite at a time? Start, start anywhere it doesn't matter. The idea is to just start. The joy...

    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...

    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 :)
