    To Be Free to Be Me

    I do wish I could live my life differently. Differently enough to be myself. Without hesitation. Without hiding. Without being ridiculed or worse. Responsibility is primary for me right now, so my life is on hold. There is more to life, my life any way. One day the wish will...

    In My Perfect World..

     Like this group says, I want to live differently. But can I? I feel so tied down by all these social norms and expectations. I used to pride myself in speaking out when it was needed and no one could do it. I didn't care what people thought. But I feel like any other...

    Reality Would Be Prefered

    I live my life inside of my head. My entire life is basically on the computer. My work is on here, my friends, my brother. Even my love life is on the computer. I wish my girl wasn't so far away, and that my friends were here and wanted to spend time with me. But maybe I'm better...

    *You start life with a clean slate.

    Then you begin to make your mark. You face decisions, make choices. You keep moving forward. But sooner or later there comes a time where you look back over where you have been and wonder who you really are. πŸšΆπŸƒπŸƒ

    I Want More

    Life is short and I want more. I love my husband and my son. I don't like his family and my family drinks too much to point that they are embarrassing to be around.

    Sometimes I Think About Running Away

    Really. I never pack up my bags but sometimes the urge comes to move somewhere. Press restart. I am a young professional, but this feels reminiscent of a bratty teen. What separates is that I don't just take action like I would have around 15-19. The thought of relocation is...

    When Will Life Begin?

    I hate having a life with my depression and a disability. I hate not being able to drive and being lonely. I wish I could go back in time and change my life so things wouldn't be this way.

    we all make choices when we're too young and inexperienced to really know what we're deciding and then we often have to live with those choices and make the most of it. Some chaices can't be taken back or changed (eg. having children), so if you're any decent sort of person, you...

    Without Hiding.

    I'm tired of having to keep up an act for the sake of the people around me. Even though I'm sure people who know me well are suspicious about my sexuality, I make it a point not to tell anyone. Same goes for my religious choices, or lack thereof as it were. I wish people could...

    Everything Would Change.

    I would be able to show who I really am to my friends. I would be able to go into public without thinking about it first. I would be able to stay in High School, rather than me getting my GED. I wouldn't be getting kicked out. I would be able to possibly understand why...

    I guess really that is a trick question. I do wish that I could live my life differently, but at the same time it's the tragedy and mistakes that really shape who we are. It sounds like I'm a fatalist, but think about it. All the things that happen in life, the ones that really...
