    It's Got to Be Enough

    Different. Bent. Broken. Eccentric. Unique. Developing. All this and more. A work in progress who emerges slowly over time. Heading toward completeness and being unbroken. Can't be anyone or anything else. Can be me. I hope that's enough. I hope I can be loved for that.

    For The First Time, I Registered In An On-line Dating Site.

    In an effort to cure my loneliness and longing, sometimes, for intimacy, I have taken the advice of a good EP friend and set up a profile on an on-line dating site.  At first I was totally nervous and feeling very self-conscious.  I put up several pictures, then took...

    I Am Who I Am..

    I'm not going to change who I am for somebody, if they don't like me then, that's kind of too bad for them.  I love who I am and nobody can change me. "I am who I am and that's something that you can never be." Just a quote I've heard before. Thanks...

    Yes, I can only be who I am

    and hope to be loved as I am. I can never pretend to be someone else or even loose my identity in the name of love. The man I loved with all my heart left me for being too honest but that is ME.

    A Departure

    This is a departure for me in that in the past I have not known who I am, I have not dared answer or seek things about myself, have not admitted that I am on a journey that could take a while and can involve a lot of changes, take so many different turns and will involve more...

    I Will Seek No More... I Will Just Be

    The Group's Name Says It All.

     I'm loud, strong, opinionated, awkward, blonde, funny, driven, smart, naive, hurt, optimistic, and empowered. I am me, and that's all there is to it. To quote Rent, "I'm looking for baggage that goes with mine." But I'm not looking for it on EP. ;) ~Jennie

    Yep... I may be naive sometimes, annoying, and sometimes I think in "black-and-white" terms, forgetting the grey. I may be weird, dorky, clumsy, a little too passionate... and a little overbearing at times. :-o But this is me. I can't help it. I am sorry if I offend...

    I Am Changing

    With the recent epiphanies I've had, and the new medication I feel like I am changing into "Myself". As I'm growing and changing, I fear that my husband will not love this new person as much. I am not the same person that I was when we first met, yet I am in a way. I mean, I was...

    Spite, The Other Side Dish

    I can only hope for this too. However, despite everything, I just feel like since my ex and I broke up that he just used me. Used me like a dish rag to just throw me out. Ever since this, my demons have been poking at me that maybe no one will ever truly love the person within...

    Depression Is A State Of Mind
