    Commitment Phobe

    I have realized something...I'm a commitment phobe. I want a serious relationship someday, but the thought of actually HAVING that kind of relationship scares the hell out of me. My brother says I haven't met the right guy yet, that's why I feel like this. I want to agree with...

    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...

    And I'm Looking Forward to It.

    I'm young, and I still have A LOT to learn. The path ahead is extremely long and intimidating, and I can't afford to go off track again. There's plenty of times where I've just wanted to give up on everything. Where the pain I was in (physically and emotionally) didn't seem...

    I think the path I walk is an endless one, and it is a path of personal growth. I will never be satisfied, which I believe is a good thing, so I must keep moving forward and growing with every step.Like the great Bob Marely said- "Life is one big road with lots of signs. So when...

    When One Door of Happiness Closes, Another One Opens

    I turned forty this spring, and lost my job in the middle of last week.  Those are minor blips on the radar, though.   The rest of the journey lies ahead of me, not the closed doors behind me.  I'm confident with who I've become, where I am today, and where I...

    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...
