    You Have To, Man!

    If you lose hope in just one thing, that can start a pattern that you don't want to get caught up in. Despair is like a fungus, it eats and grows and can envelope us, consuming everything good that we will ever have.

    Today while I was working,

    a little boy around 3yrs ran up to me and said 'my daddy told me that when I see a beautiful girl I should kiss her, because life is short! Can I kiss you?' I nearly cried but let him kiss my cheek.! Made my day ☺️

    Hopefully Thanksgiving will be nice

    and I won't think about everything that's going wrong in my life. I did something today that was very hard to do and I'm hoping it will pay off. I won't have to see if it paid off until the end of this week so I'm ok until then.

    We Will Survive

    I really love the song, O-h-h Child, originally recorded by the Five Stairsteps in 1970. I’ve always found it to be very uplifting and inspirational.  When I’m feeling down, listening to this song seldom fails to make me feel a little bit better.   The original recording...

    Look Past The Dark

    You see me and think that I am happy. People could look me in the eyes and see nothing but joy, if only that was true. I have secrets too, like everyone else. I have things that eat at my core but you will never know. Most expect me to be healthy and happy. Though I am bulimic...

    No matter how strong my depression gets,

    there's always going to be a reason to be living. I may procrastinate at things sometimes, but I am incredibly ambitious, and I am determined to make something of my life. Even if, I don't know, I go down in history as the worst writer of all time, at least I could say I made...

    I've had a lot of reasons to give up the hope

    of ever feeling like it's going to be ok but I'm still trying. It's so hard at times and sometimes I forget to hope but I'm still here. As long as I'm alive I will always have at least a little hope.

    Thankfully. Though I have at many times throughout my life lost it. Along my journey through this world I let it slip from my grasp, allowed myself to fall as I'm sure many of you have also done. Falling is inevitable, it's the "getting back up that can seem impossible all too...

    To someone who feels

    so alone, sad or depressed (for whatever reason): Hang in there. You're not gonna be sad forever. Remember that to every thing, there is a season. :) So please put that smile back in your face and just hope for the best. Take one day at a time. :)

    Still Have Hope, Beyond Reason

    I have my own reasons for continuing to hope that one day the love of my life will wake up and know we are meant to be.   Sometimes this hope is a burden, because it plays with my mind.  Does it keep me from moving forward, in meeting others?  I "hope" not...

    that I haven't dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.” ― Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl
