    When I was younger my older sisters bullied me!

    When I was in my late teens and 20's they would criticize me, judge me unjustly and report me to my very unrealistically conservative parents. But now I've been married for 11 yrs. and conformed to the family values. However, one of my sister's is recently separated (which is...

    Anger management doesn't help at all!

    !! it just annoys me, I'm not a rude or mean person idk..maybe I have to search a little deeper inside myself to figure out what causes all the anger pain & frustration. Not saying I'm a bad person but I do need improvements on my attitude & the way I handle situations.

    I've hurt my husband a lot.

    I did not treat him well when we first got married. I also flirted with other men a couple of times which I told him about. I've apologized for everything countless of times but I've also lied to him a lot which makes him not trust me. He is still very hurt and the relationship...

    Sometimes I get so depressed

    that I can't even get out of bed in the morning. I feel so worthless for not having anyone and it eats away at me. I just wanna be happy and confident so that I'm able to be successful.

    I think being a better person begins with

    accepting myself how I am first. How can I put forth the effort necessary to improve something I do not love? I am a human being. I have thoughts, dreams, hopes. I feel. I am flawed and I hurt people. I am kind and I help people. I would like, always, to be the kind me...

    Everyone always says no one is perfect.

    For most people when they first hear, "no one is perfect", they give up on perfection. No one is perfect though, except Jesus, but nobody is Jesus. That doesn't mean we can't strive to be perfect though. Just because we can never get there doesn't mean we shouldn't keep trying...

    I feel incomplete, like I've missed the day

    when everyone receives their role in life. I have no place, no prospects of a future that won't kill me slowly. I have no hope left. I just want to find that little thing that makes me ME. I wish I could turn back time and start all over - and just find it!

    "In the end, nothing changes.
