    I Sure Hope So

    I look at the title to this group and my first thought was "is it a negative statement or a positive statement"  and before I joined I had to set it in my mind that it was going to be a positive one.  I guess the reason I had to do that before joining I...

    Being a person primarily closed off from other

    people (by choice earlier in life), I never developed the skills that everyone else around me has, and have success in things I want. Now, I have come across another event in my life that teaches me this. I will get the lesson this time. I'm writing this message for all...

    At Least That's What I've Learned

    Good or bad, this is just the start, this will pass too. Sometimes you will eat your words, break your promises and just laugh at the irony of things. You start believing in different things, you break down, build anew, experience that you can live without a lot of stuff, learn...

    Cold To The Touch

    I drank myself to sleep after last night's breakdown. I woke up today without a tear in my eye. I just woke up, made my cup of tea, and got to my chores. I just drifted from task to task with a numb, I-don't-give-a-**** kind of mentality. I just don't feel anything anymore. I'm...
