    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...

    Try To Be The Best Me

    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...
