    I realize that I want to be a better person.

    I have done mistakes than the share allotted. I want a new beginning, a fresh start. I am looking forward to forgive myself so that I can show the person I love that there is a difference. But the question is can I move on?? Is it possible??? Any advice??

    I always feel like cutting my wrist every time

    I'm upset or angry. I haven't done it yet but every day I'm getting close and closer to it. Now I already put the knife on my wrist but I don't have the nerve to pull my hand. I'm afraid that on day I'll do it. It's like I'm a different person when I'm angry and I have no...

    I am going to start doing something

    once a week or more that stretches my comfort zone, and helps me feel alive. Today I will pay for someone's groceries in front or back of me, or pay for their meal in the drive through, or some type of random act of kindness that presents itself. I'll return and report.
