    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...

    More And More Lately

    Sometimes  I wake up in the morning, look in the mirror and just wonder "what happened?" Sometimes I'll stare into the mirror for 5, 10, or even 15 minutes. Sometimes I like the guy on the other side, sometimes I hate him, and sometimes I just feel sorry for him. But every...

    If I Could Turn Back Time

    Although I blame my ex for being partly at fault and for giving up, there are things that I wish I could do over. I wouldn't demand your attention everyday and get mad when you want to hang out with your friends instead. I would have made more of a life for myself, like I am now...

    Start Over

    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.

    Second Chances

    For years I've lived with the mistakes I've made, over and over. Before I never really thought I deserved a second chance honestly. I've never been a forgiving person so to speak, but since I've screwed up so much, the one person I seem to be trying to forgive is myself...

    And it just seems to keep getting worse. I'm so sick of walking through the hallways alone. I'm sick of having no one to talk to. It's not that I'm mean or rude or awkward, I try to make friends and it never works. My first serious boyfriend left me when I needed him most so now...

    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.
