    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...

    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...

    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...

    ...I was born. I was born to wonderful parents and I loved them very much. And I wish sooo much that I could end my story at this, and say I live "happily ever after" but I can't. When I was 2, my parents got a divorce, and my dad had visitation rights. So I saw my dad...

    Who Am I?

    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...

    I keep routing myself,

    even though I love and excel at what I do. I have a mental block and it feels like a ton on my head. Why do you think this is happening to me?

    Feeling Spacey!

    For the past couple of weeks, I've felt almost as if I'm in a daze.  School is going by at a snails pace, the kids are getting to me every second of the day, I can't seem to find the energy to clean the house.  The thought that keeps running through my head is that I need some...

    I want to stop relying on others

    for my happiness. I am tired of love being portrayed as the only way to be happy. I want to be alone and not be lonely. I want to know myself.

    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.

    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...
