    In order to find yourself you need to know

    who you are. All of the things that you've encountered in your past needs to be properly & maturely dealt with. So many think running from relationship to relationship is cool and popular but when you really hit "maturity" you will learn that it's all foolishness. Never let...

    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...

    As a young adolescent in this day and age, it's typical for a teen such as myself, to constantly wonder, who I am or who I want to be? When you determine your future, does it have to be under your parents expectations? Do I have to live up to society's standards? Who's standards...

    Broken And Lost

    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...
