I Still Have a Long Way to Go

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 502 People

    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...

    Everyday I Learn Something New...

    That is the most important thing to me in life. I have so much to learn and I love learning new things from my friends and just people in general. I think I've grown up to be a respectable young man with a very understanding mind. I give a lot of thanks to my mom for that one and...

    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...

    I Sure Hope So

    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...

    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...

    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...
