    We Can Change The Way We Look At Our Past

    We cannot change our past, but we can change our present and future. I over think a good majority of things, especially my past. What I have come to terms with is that our past cannot be forgotten and that we cannot change it. But, we can change the way we look at it. All my life...

    In The Past...

    I was unstoppable, was confident and things seemed to come easy. Now in my middle forty's I seemed to have lost it all. I can't seem to connect with any job, even some of my old friends... Just no fire??

    I'm stupidly stuck slap in the middle frame of

    my life's past. It was the only place I truly loved; the land, the culture and people, the friends, just everything. It was my escape from a living hell. It was the only small window of 'freedom' I've ever had and have not yet retrieved back. I try not to forget or regret my...

    Will The Future Ever Measure Up To The Past?

    So many beautiful memories from the past, sometimes I wonder if the future will ever measure up. I miss so many people who used to be dear to me but they do not wish to be in my life anymore. Nor should they. What's over is over, but I always have this urge to reach out. To go...

    I wish I could just go back in time.

    I wish things were different. I wish you were mine. Still. Not a day goes by I don't think about you. When I see you instead of just saying hi and bye I would kiss you.

    I've just recently been diagnosed with depression. Apparently my doctor says I've had it since I was fifteen; I'm now twenty-one. It's nothing new. My mother always suspected I was mental. The fact that it's depression and not something more serious (apparently mental disorders...

    I think about my past a lot when things in current events turn negative, and as cheesey as it sounds, I wish somebody would come along and change me into someone beautiful and likeable, approachable and confident. Life isn't that awful right now, I'm not depressed, sad or in a...

    Scars

    I think about the past a lot... probably to much. It really affects the way I am today. My childhood kind of haunts my mind at times. I usually can block it out almost like I didn't have one but everyone has a trigger. Its very vague but the smell of old beer on his breath still...
