    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 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...
