    I'm Scared To Feel This Way...

    I've been dating you for a year and a half, and you're so special to me. I've never met, never even knew it was possible for someone to be so good. So caring like you are. Gentle and yet... So strong. God, I just need to be saved from my own self. This is wrong, but, I can't help...

    I'm Not Talking About Extreme Situations Though

    But a lot of things I thought were bad actually made me better. And when I look back I'm grateful for some of those lessons.

    It's All In Your Perspective

    I remember about 8 years ago when I was diagnosed with the hepatitis C virus. Needless to say, this seemed like a really bad situation to me. After all, it means that although I may not die quickly, I still could eventually see an unhappy ending in my life. Next I found out that...

    I'm Like A Butterfly...

    At times...I'm like a butterfly caught inside life's net...and it feels like there is no escape for me when these particular moments occur. I've had a lot of these moments over the past year. Life can be simple...yet so incredibly complicated. People fall in love and live life...

    From Pain To Hope

    Character Growth Requires The Essential Shockwaves (good And Bad!)

    It's a proven psychological concept that we are a product of our experiences. This in itself seems to make a whole lot of good ol' plain common sense. Yes true we go through experiences that shapes our frame of reference and dictates (or at least influences) the way we react to...

    Most Bad Things

    Bad things are- let's face it- BAD. No one enjoys them, everyone dreads them, and we all sometimes just wish bad things didn't exist. But I think what we forget or don't realize at all is the positivity that often stems from bad things. When we go through something bad, it...

    Him

    I'm fifteen now, but when I was in middle school I knew this guy and I was like, love sick puppy. But he was mean to me a lot and four four years I wouldn't get away from him, even though he used me, was cruel to me, physically hurt me, and one day during the summer, he tried to...

    Disabled for unknown reasons

    but it has changed my life not only physical but mentally. I think I become this way for many reasons. Some are clear. Others are not. But I do believe everything happens for a reason. This is the path that I'm suppose to be on. God only knows.

    My Worst Nightmare.

    I remember watching the movie "Awake"and being scared of that happening to me (anesthesia Awareness). I hoped it never would happen, and it did. I woke up during surgery only 8 weeks after watching the movie. It scared me, scarred me, and gave me PTSD. Then, a few years after...

    I Would Not Have Survived

    It sounds weird to say this, but I am glad my dad was so tough on me. I am positive I would not have survived my life if he had raised me to be a little wuss. Granted, he didn't have to break bones to get his point across!

    Unexpected Episodes Of Exponential Potential

    I learned a major lesson this week: Sometimes, a tragedy is an opportunity in disguise. So, the last week has been pretty much one of the worst ever. (This could be considered the sequel to my other story, "Give 'em Enough Rope...).  For those who don't know the back story, I'll...

    Every day above ground is a good day.

    I used to not think this way. Growing up was a violent adventure for me. While I must say I learned a lot and how to be strong I still went through terrible things to get here. I remember when I was 13 spraining my ankle and going to my father after missing the bus. He felt...
