    With any luck (and perhaps some hard work),

    I will thrive. I'm not going to give up. I might change my mode of operation, but I'm not going to stay down. "There ain't no power around, can keep a good man down."

    I always felt awkward in life.

    I didn't fit in. A stranger. Ugly and unlovable. I had a few girlfriends. I never really connected with any of them. I mostly felt that I wasn't worthy to be with them, and I think, because of that, I never opened up to them. One day I found someone I could open up to...

    It hasn't been easy. I've swam to the surface,

    to freedom and, I've been pulled down to the floor again. But, I know I can do this. I'm still finding myself. I'm still trying to figure out my place in this world. I know, I can win. I will find myself again, no matter how tough it's going to get. No matter WHAT.

    I will survive through my horrors.

    I want to tell someone so badly but I am afraid of being judged. I just want to be happy. It's hard to be truthful with people on your secret that will forever last your life even on this app. It's hard to say and even as I'm writing this it's hard to not care or not think of...
