    Try To Be The Best Me

    but you know, I find myself thinking that maybe I am not trying hard enough. Good is one level, great is another and a whole new set of energies. I wish I had the energy to be great.

    I Can Change

    For years I struggled with depression, apathy with life, feeling "not-normal" or awkward, and I was closed to the world. Since August last year, I have grown so much that *I* even notice the difference in me.  Recently I've been hearing this song on the radio, and each time I...

    Trying To Feel Worth It

    For my whole childhood, I have grown up with the idea that I had to prove my worth. I had to impress people- that was my job.  I worked so hard at that my whole life, that I have forgotten (or never learned) how to be me.  Now that I'm discovering for the first time how to be...

    I love my mom so much but she treats me like I'm not here. My mom makes me feel like I'm the reason for everything bad in her life. When I'm not being put down I'm being ignored.
