    Paulo and I had this whole trip planned. 2010 starts in Ireland and we'd take a year or two to travel around Europe. We have the money saved up and everything. We had train tickets at the ready, people to stay with, hostels picked out. We knew what we wanted to see and what we...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    When Will My Life Begin?

    I spend most of the day daydreaming what my life would be like if I was out on my own. I would be able to go wherever I wanted to go and make my own decisions. Having a place of my own would be paradise...if it were real. All I do is stay in my room and watch television all day...

    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...

    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...

    *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
