    I really don't know myself. not my true self. Sure I know somethings; my likes and dislikes, my talents and my quirks. But even all of that stuff seems not genuine. or maybe I feel not whole. I tried religion, for the longest time I was a devote christian. I submersed myself into...

    It's a struggle, a search,

    maybe you even hold the key to a door that is unkown. Yet, no one can really find themselves... My thought was exactly, you try and find yourself in a search... a quest. But, I was wrong. The only time you can find yourself is in others. Because, others hold the memories of you...

    I've always found happiness through other

    people. I've relied on past boyfriends to make me smile, feel comfortable, and feel like I have worth. When I felt special to someone it gave me happiness in knowing I mattered to the world. Now after three failed, but loving, relationships I am left with this person I don't...

    I've had an astrologer email me

    for some time now. One of the things that popped out most was that I have a lot of potential and talents screaming to be used. Of course, without a credit card, I cannot get the full look into it, so I'm at a loss of where to go with this.

    You can only push yourself so hard until everything ends up collapsed. Being pulled back and forth, it's like you have no control. In reality, there's a way out of every problem.
