    I Have To Improve

    I've known this for a long time, I guess I've been afraid of being mean or something, but I have got to guard my heart. I can't let just anyone in anymore. I know what I want and he will come one day. I have to re-focus myself. I can't be in a relationship, until I handle my...

    To End The Family Cycle Of Eating To Death

    Compulsive eating has taken a heavy toll on my Mom and Dad personally. Let me explain both: With my mom, I've never seen her be happy with her size. I've never seen her NOT on a diet. I've never seen her drop the "magical 30" that she's always wanted. Last year, she found out...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.
