    Where Do I Go From Here?

    I took a stand to-nite. I asked more from my marriage than what is present now. As a recovering alcoholic I realized that the stress was causing me to question my sobriety and mental health. I want more from a marriage than to settle. I want to give and I want the person who I...

    I majorly need to change.

    Today was the breaking point. I have lost my identity. I have lost who I am. I was once easy going and fun, full of energy! Now, after being through struggle after struggle, I'm emotionally drained. I have no energy left. I regret a lot of poor decisions I made. This is not me...

    Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes

    I am a continual work in progress.  Over the years I have changed so much I am hardly the same person at all.  But I do need to rediscover parts of my old self, now thought lost. Life is boring without change.

    Similar Experience

    My ex-husband is an alcoholic. We were married for 6 years and had one child. The alcoholism wasn't obvious at first, at least not to me, but got progressively worse. I begged him to get help which he refused insisting he could quit on his own. Of course that never happened. I...

    The Funny Thing About Happiness.

    I've finally realized what it takes to be remotely happy. Do something for yourself. I sat there, emotionless, as I felt everything that could go wrong, went wrong, coal colored mascara filled tears invaded my face as I shook my head in disappointment. And that's when it hit me...

    Where will I be a year from now?

    A better place and a better frame of mind I hope. So much can happen in a year, especially in my semi-adventurous life. Last year by this time I was single, sad and bitter, now I'm living in a completely different city with my "new" man. Although I am grateful for what I do...

    Is it me? Everything is crumbling.

    Nothing makes sense. Relationships are broken. Bonds that should be permanent are severed, leaving behind ragged edges of frayed cord. I know I'm not wrong in facilitating the brokenness. It is time for me to be surrounded by people in my life who truly do love me. Family is...
