I Want To Help Theredlady Come Out Of Her Shell

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 25 People

    Hmmm

     I could tell about myself in any group on this site. I have for awhile. Not every one reads about me. Not my friends here nor the ones who are not my friends. I guess since someone thought this is a good place for me to venture out of  my shell, I can do that here...

    I Will

    Ah Well....

    Now is the time I guess I should say it..... I never thought I would. I thought for sure just a few months ago I was destined to spend my life alone without the love and companionship of someone special. I was wrong. I met the most wonderful man. Loving, caring, sensitive but...

    I Reserve Judgement

    I try my best not to judge people. I grew up being judged by adults and peers because of the way I dressed, my social status, my looks, and my personality. People rarely took time to know me. They didn't realize that the reason I was so reserved and shy was because I'd spent my...

    I Get Tired

    Sometimes, i read in the confessions because it's where my friends reside, conversing amongst themselves. It's where I tell them good night because that's where I know they will most likely see it. i don't usually go to confessions other than that. I read the occasional...

    Who Am I

    Who am I? Perhaps not the best place to ask this question of myself. This group was made to make me come out of my shell, not to justify it. Who am I? I am who you see not....... I am me. Pure and simple. The words I write are who I am. My thoughts and feelings, my dreams and...

    Ha! I Still Love Snow!

    I had so much fun with the snow we had. If you lived where I do, you might understand more. We NEVER get snow here. Oh, we've gotten dribbles and flurries that usually melt as soon as it touches ground. It never accumulates. A couple of rare occasions when we got an inch or two...

    Not Sure.....

    I'm not sure if it had anything to do with the q&a introduction the other day or not, but I have suddenly got a whole new flood of friends coming through. For a change, it's not full of questionable characters.

    A Poem

    A shining New York City night, a gum-smeared, trash-lined concrete red carpet and flourescent bulbs replacing stars. But soft!  atop the roofs where gargoyles share a  home with pidgeons the red lady perches, waiting for evil, cape billowing in the...

    I Think I Think Too Much

    I think, sometimes, I say too much. I shouldn't try to fix everything all the time. I don't have all the answers, but sometimes I just want to help so badly that I think I stick my nose where I shouldn't. I also am afraid that I ......disappoint people. I think too much about...

    One Thing Ticking... Heheheheh

    If you really want to me to come out of my shell. You need to know what makes me tick. To many things whirling round my brain to just settle on one of my faults, so I close my eyes and pull the first one out. Here it is... as I sit in my bedroom, huddled in a ball, too...

    Drinking

    I love a good mixed drink. I don't care for straight whiskey or tequila or beer, but I do love a mixed drink.... 7n7, fuzzy navels, margaritas... there is a list. I gave it up though when my husband died. I was afraid. I was afraid of dying in a glass of liquor while my kids...

    There Was A Time.

    There was a time when I would write to my heart's content, about all that I was feeling and experienced and dreamed.  No one knew for the longest time that I did this, except for my mother. When I went into high school I had such a miserable time because I was such an...

    There is only one of me. I can't do it all. Certainly not alone. I feel alone. At this moment I am alone and feeling sorry for myself and there is nothing any one can do, because here I sit. This is my story tonight, this night. Tomorrow may be different, but tonight, I am...
