    Each day is a new opportunity to be better

    and do better. A chance to gain knowledge and understanding; to create connections and share experiences. Each day is brighter than the one before. I'm filled with so much hope that I can no longer contain it! If you're out there, lonely and afraid, and looking for answers, just...

    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...

    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...

    At Least That's What I've Learned
