    It's Taking Some Time

    I'm not one of those people who look back at there life and say: "oh, those were the good times".  Frankly, they weren't.  I used be bullied and was the last kid picked for dodge ball and a million other things.  The one thing I can say is that I used to...

    But There's Just One Problem.

    I don't even know who I am anymore. I don't know who the real me is, or where she's gone, or if she'll ever come back. I don't know if the emotionally devastated girl I see in the mirror each day is the real me. There's so much I don't understand.

    I Really Dont Know Who I Am

    I used to be such a strong person. I never had to think twice. And I never needed a guy to make me happy. But now, none of those apply to me. I do need him. I cant make a choice with out giving it a second thought and I am so weak. Some days when I think about my choices I just...

    Wholey Me

    I was divorced a few years ago and from then to now I've been finding who I was. I'm bubbly and outgoing as I was before my marriage. I like the fact that now I'm more driven and determined to make something of myself and I like most of the changes that have occurred. I...

    False Messiahs

    Drink the poison. Trace the veins Your saviours will not be saved. You got the devil's mouth and it's full of lies. Black eyes.

    The Past 3.5 Years of My Life ...

    The past 3.5 years of my life have been filled with hectic undergraduate work. Last night I was accepted to my first medical school, relieving a huge weight off my shoulders. Next semester I will only be taking one class -- 3 credits. This mean I can finally kick back and relax...

    Right now I am a complete stranger to myself.  I don't like the ME right now. It seems the past two years I have lost me piece by piece and now the person I was is kicked to the curb. I am trying hard to get that person back, but it is going very, very slowly.  ...

    The Way We Were

    I look back to childhood, when everything was much more simple. Deciding who we were then, was not an issue. We just existed to have fun. Those were the formative years when the way we "wanted to be" was our main focus. Dreaming of the future and what path it would take...

    Hoping It Will Happen Soon

    Well I guess I've never really known who I am to begin with, but the girl I am now is definitely not me. I have a hard time focusing on school, struggle with my eating disorder and I have a lot of mental issues like Bi-Polar disorder, Social Anxiety, and especially Depression. It...

    What Went Wrong?

    I used to have such a great attitude about everything!  Nothing could possibly bring me down or make me upset.  Back when I was in high school, it was like it was a different me.  I had great self-esteem, I got involved in many activities, I went out and socialized...

    She is not stuck up at all,

    she just doesn't want to find herself stuck in another situation where she gives a man everything and she gets nothing in return. If she could rewind time to pay attention to the signs, she would. If she could go back in the past and fix her mistakes, she would. She would have...

    This Is Me

    Except me for who I am and what I want to be.  If you want to walk with me fine, but please don't expect me to change.  I tried that and wasn't happy.

    It's ironic.  When I was a kid, I couldn't understand why my mother didn't have more energy.  She was 35 years old when I was born, and was always a hard worker.  Whenever there was open time, she just wanted to sit and relax.  Soon she was asleep. As I grew...
