    I want to get out of here. Out of my house, city, school, everything. I don't feel like I belong here, and I wish I could just move to a new city and start over. People know things about my past and assume things about me or think I am weak. They think I'm still sick. They think...

    As long as I could keep the knowledge I've gained, then use it to make the RIGHT decision the next time around.  I know... it doesn't work like that.... cause if I hadn't already made the wrong choice... I would not have gained the knowledge and understanding that I have...

    Greener Pastures.

    I wasn't expecting the longest,most stable, relationship I have ever had (3 years) to end the way it did. She left me with all the bills and skipped out on rent. I have absolutely no other place to go, and as luck would have it, all of my friends are currently stuck in less than...

    that I could go back in time and have a second chance. Fix everything that went wrong the past 5 months. But, at the end of it all, I realize I have learned from it all and I 'm better because of it. Better friends, independency, I know now how to deal with heartbreak, how to...

    Hello people of the online universe,

    my name is Josh and I'm unique like each and every one of you. My whole life has been a series of mistakes, self discipline, and the feeling of loneliness. I learned how to be independent at a young age, because I've learned you can't trust people through a series of unfortunate...

    If Only I Knew Back Then

    I was never THAT outgoing. And I'm not that much outgoing now. If I could start over, I would make myself be more outgoing because its a special quality I wish to develop, but with my insecurities it's almost impossible. I hope that one day that I will be outgoing enough to be...

    Regrets

    If I could start over from my senior year of high school, that would be great. I'm not sure if I would pick a different university to go to, but I sure as hell wouldn't do what I did. I wouldn't jump into a relationship right away. After we broke up, I wouldn't have slept with...

    I have done too many bad things, and wish I could start over. I sometimes seem to mess up the good things that I have. I embarrass myself too much, also.

    I could never gain any self respect

    because of the way I looked so I was stupid meaning I built up a really immature reputation for myself, that always seems to proceed me. Now every time I do something people always think of my reputation.
