    New Beginning

    I broke up with my girlfriend of 5 years on Wednesday, I leave my job of 6 years next week Wednesday and all I feel at the moment is nothing. I don't feel as if I'm in denial as I don't really feel a lot. Historically I have been afraid of change and lacking in self confidence...

    Moving On

    Moving on can be so hard sometimes. Especially if it's dealing with someone you care about. We don't always want to acknowledge the fact we have to move on sometimes because it hurts. It really does. But I know I can't sit around and soak on the things that is out of my control...

    Moving On

    I guess, for me....moving on doesn't mean~moving 800 miles from where I grew up. I woke up this morning and wish this "vacation, bad dream, disaster move, what was I thinking" was over! Yup, I am fully home sick, so to speak. If it wasn't for the house; some how I...

    How?

    Please tell me how!  i am begging!  How do you let go of the past when the terrible things were drilled into you.  It baffles me that a few years of abuse can screw you for the rest of your life.  Sometimes words are terrible things.
