    Wow...I haven't written in over a year.

    I guess if I was the person I want to be, I would have nothing left to do. Perfection I think is over-rated anyways....

    I Want To Be Strong

    I want to be strong, not weak and frail.. And I don't mean physically either. :( I'm very afraid that I will never make it in the real world because I may not have what it takes to compete, and still have the remaining energy to charge through to my goals. I'm sheltered...

    No matter how often anyone says otherwise, i will never feel like enough, just the way i am. I'll never be smart enough for my mother, who treats me like a child- she still sees me as an emotional and unintelligent prepubescent. I'll never be pretty enough for my boyfriend...

    I Am Who I Wished To Be Finally

    Growing up I was raised not to be who I was and had to spend years evolving into who I am now. I live and work every day as the transgender goth that I am and have totally rejected the clean cut Christian boy I was forced to be and I've never been happier. I think it's torture...

    What Should I Do?

    I thought I knew what I wanted to do. I thought for sure I would become a doctor like my parents. They kind of expected me to become one. "No pressure. Do what you want..." They said. But for some reason I got the feeling that there was pressure. That I should become a doctor...

    Well Obviously..

    Everyone has this picture in their head of how they wish they were. Some of them are lucky and actually get to be that picture. Some aren't and have to live as being something or someone other than they feel they should. I, unfortunately, fall under the latter. I know I'll never...

    Why is love so hard to find? Why does every woman turn on me the instant I ask them out? Am I just destined to be alone? Why do I feel so wrong when I do finally get a date? Is it because I have known I am a girl at heart since I was a small child? Is this why my ex left me and...

    Younger and less restricted by a lifetime of

    trying to be someone that doesn't fit my basic personality. I might or might not really be happier but I like to think I would be and I definitely think I'd be a better person.

    Throughout the past few years, I've been through some tough stuff. Worse than the average kid should have to- court, abuse, suicide, medication, bullying. Since the beginning, people, usually in my support groups, have always called me brave. I've never felt that way, though. I...

    Growing up as a kid was difficult for me.  When I was five, my family had moved to a new house in this quiet suburban neighborhood.  Being the "new kid" at such a young age was painful, considering everyone else that lived nearby had grew up together...

    I Want To Be

    Looked as a person who is mature, which I am but no one ever looks at me that way until they speak to me and they are blown away. I wish I could be a person with a car and I license, a job so I can keep busy and happy. I want to be a person who is out of high school and one step...
