    It Starts Out So Innocently...

    I have lost who I am in the pursuit of who I want to be. I am now seeking a general definition of who I am that is more all encompassing than the personalities that I have refined for work church family etc. It is not all bad to choose who you want to be even if you loose who you...

    If I Can Still Think Right

    I can't see what I'm doing any more, these days there is just nothing to fight for. Now that I lost my way, don't even bother listening to what I say. These words weren't in my mind back then, when things made sense and I was still ten. I had a place and a reason to be, but now I...

    The Story Of The Girl Who Used To Be.

    This is my story. I fell in love with a guy who seemed wonderful. He used to think the world of me. He loved me. And then he met someone else. He is the only person who has seen everything, and he didn’t like what he saw. He was put off when he got to know me. I used to think...

    I Slipped Tonight...and It Woke Me Up

    Today is the Jewish day of atonement, or "Yom Kippur." My experience tonight was so strange and painful, I just need someone to pat me on the shoulder and say that it'll be okay. I have been struggling with marijuana dependence (yes, it exists) for over a year now. I basically...

    At Times

    I used to be able to tell you exactly who I am, that person deep inside. I can still answer somewhat but feel that slowly these years are taking bits of me away. The stress of life and struggles of family, the career and juggling it all together. I am absolutely exhausted at...

    Lunacy, As A Way Of Life

    I am not hysterical...I am not "upset".  But.....I think I AM losing myself.  I have no idea who I even am, anymore, or what I want.  It's such a long, complicated story, and I barely know where to begin.  I have LOTS of questions, but no answers for myself.  I'm feeling...

    I Don't Know Who "me" Is

    I feel like I'm changing somehow. I can't really explain it. It feels like I'm 14 all over again. Ever since I left high school, life has just been a jumble to me. My friends have mostly gone to university in different cities, I have to pay my own bills, I have to decide what I...

    My Path..

    I think I am losing myself... I feel as all I breathe lately is death. It's like I've never been myself or someone I can care about myself. I am so lost in this world and the only path I seem to see is one that is dark and there is no light and possibly there is no end to the...

    I Don't Know What To Do

    I lie because I don't know the right thing to say. I know it's wrong but I've survived so long because of it. I don't know how to find truth in my words anymore. It's to the point that I can't trust my own feelings. Everyday that goes bye seems to take away one more thing I can...
