    I Did It. I Stood Up to Him.

    I want to stand strong,

    I want to be independent, I want to stand on my own. I fed up of waiting for people to help me, depend on others for my own problems. Yet I do not know how to take the first step.

    I Find It a Bit Odd...

    A lot of the time I feel really sad

    and feel like giving in to self hatred and depredation. But then I think of everyone out there who feels sad and sorry for themselves. I always think to myself that if they just change their thought process, then they could get over it. Then I realize that the same is true for...
