    Just agreed to start the process of a divorce.

    She was throwing up about an hour later and then wanted to talk when I was in our daughters room. Strangely the conversation ended with us talking about sex but never went any further. I don't know where our relationship is headed but I still want to be best friends with my wife...

    There's a difference between surviving

    and living. I was the type of girl who would walk with her head bowed in the hallway, going straight to class without stopping to "chat" or "catch up" or "hang out" with others. I didn't willingly engage in human interaction, and perhaps I made good grades. Perhaps I did well on...

    Hey Allie, you seem awesome.

    Due to the fact that you have so many friends on EP, I'm including below a post that I have floating around out there dealing with my DUI. If you know of any ways for me to receive feedback that's pertinent, I love to receive it. Thanks Craig... OK, sometimes it’s easier to...

    Thoreau

    I've always loved Thoreau's writings, and in particular Walden is my favorite. One of my treasured passages and one that I've quoted at different stages of my life comes from the second chapter. "I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only...

    routine. I'm tired of the way I've been acting. I need a change. A big change. I need to flip this life upside down, turn it around, turn it inside out, something... I can't stand living this way anymore. I'm not going down a good path, and I need to take action. Starting...

    The first and the last time of everything seems

    Life is short! Break the rules!

    Forgive quickly! Kiss slowly! Love truly, laugh uncontrollably & never regret anything that made you smile.

    As many of you already know,

    I have lost both my mother and my best friend to cancer. The thing about cancer, specially in the final stages, is that you know the end is coming, and it leaves you time, sometimes too much of it, to reflect on your life and what really matters. What struck me the most is...

    What kind of life do you live?

    We all have similarities no matter where we are, what culture we are part of. I think it's good to hear & interesting to see what lives so others lead, share it πŸ˜€πŸ‘Œ

    I really want to. I see my friends having fun,

    living their lives with boyfriends and girlfriends and they seem to follow the idea of "life is short to be too serious" and I'm quite the opposite. I try my best to concentrate on studies and manage to gain a good rank in class and even though it makes me happy, it doesn't...

    I am different to a lot of people I know,

    because I don't want to just vegetate and survive - go to work, go home, eat, sleep etc - and I'm not interested in status symbols, marriage, children or settling down. I want to live my life like a beautiful adventure or like a work of art. I want to travel, I want to make...

    I feel like I'm at a crossroads.

    Nothing significant has changed, but that may be the reason for my discontent. I want things to change. I want to look forward to something, lie awake at night unable to fall asleep because I'm too excited. I haven't felt excited for anything in too long. I feel like I've given...
