    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...

    Endless Road

    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...

    The Art Of Feeling Better

    I decided to perform an experiment, see if it impacted my life at all...I decided to log out of Facebook AND turn off my cell phone for 72 hours. I went about my usual routines, school, grocery shopping, etc. Just with no outside influences. It was tough, but I did it. And now...

    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...

    Well My Body Says: 16 Years, My Mind Says: Over 20

     Yeah, like the title says, i'm 16 but somehow i can't talk to people my age, i just... don't understand them... But when i talk to people over 19 years old, I feel "normal" or maybe happy. Sometimes i hate being like this, because you are like the mother of the...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...
