    A Blessing In Disguise

    I posted something earlier about the way my cousin treats me. A bit after that, he comes over as usuall, and we got in an argument. I ended up punching the wall, throwing a refridgerator, and cussing him out. Mky hand really started hurting. My knuckle was gone, and I ended up...

    Don't Call 'friend' When Action Is Not!

    Dear Mr. & Mrs. Coward,It's been so disappointing again for such an arrogant couple like you two who act as if you are truly in love and would like to extend your true love to those people by saying something of making friend. But, both of you are well aware that your actions...

    Last night I made up my mind

    and did something that was really difficult for me to do. I told my boyfriend about my learning disability. I knew that it was inevitable that I would tell him one of these days but I was hoping it would be later rather than sooner. Anyway, I have non verbal learning disability...

    Holding It In Til It Explodes...

    I always hold things inside until I can't bear it anymore and something terrible happens. It's just the way I grew to understand the world. I was abused growing up, and telling things never helped only hurt, so I grew to keep so many things secret and locked up. In my college...

    But It Feels Like....

    Everything I say comes out wrong somehow. Like somewhere between my heart, my brain, & my mouth, it loses it's meaning. Drives me crazy, probably my family too. I don't think any of them ever know exactly what's gonna come out of my mouth at any given time. Well, at least I'm...

    Articulation

    It's hard for me to properly articulate what is on my mind, and it frustrates me to no end. I'd like to think that it's because I haven't found the proper words to say what is on my mind, but sometimes, I think these words don't even exist.

    Expressing Myself.

    I do, I wish I could express myself when I write but I don't seem to be able to do it. I read peoples poems on here, and sit back and take in their stories and experiences, and I am amazed at how the words all seem to flow and fit together. I really want the ability to express...

    Locked Up

    I feel like I've lost the ability to communicate effectively in some ways.  I really want to learn to talk more frankly about my own life.  I'm not too bad with talking about other people's lives but I tend to lock up when people ask about mine.  And I feel like...
