    I as a person has been through hell

    and back. I've experienced things that others couldnt possibly imagine. At the age of 3 my parents divorced and that when everything started, the molestation that had went on for years, the beatings, and all of the heart break. Sometimes i wonder why god chose me to suffer and...

    Always Reminders

    I try very hard not to let things from my past interfere with today. But... the best laid plans... There are times... in the dark... that I go through the what ifs. At times I take a chance and reveal a little more, a few more pieces of me, to select few others. Wanting no...

    My past was hard, I didn't have a childhood at

    all. I had to grow up at a young age. But I won't let that stop me today, now I'm living my childhood at 20 years old. Doing all the things I wanted to do as a child but couldn't. Why? Because I owe that to my self, I can't blame myself for my past. When one door closes another...

    No, I Won't

    And neither should you.If you buy into the idea that the past is part of your present and will forever be part of your future, then you have paid for something that is worthless.Life has some really bad turns in it.  Everybody gets thrown into a ditch from time to time.  Some...

    So True

    I have so many crappy stories about my past, and I have a ton of regrets. However, every day I choose to not let those memories dictate who I am or who I will be.

    What Matters

    I've come too far along to just let the progress I've made slip through my fingers again.  I'm also never going to let another person have the power to control my heart and mind and make me believe that I'm worthless.  I used to think that hiding all my problems...

    Fungirl's Thoughts

    I got tired of my past dictating my future.  One night I had a dream that changed me profoundly.  In the dream, although he didn't say it in real life, Silver said to me, "Don't lose sight of your future by allowing your past to cloud the view."  Pretty...

    Breaking the Cycle

    I have concluded that yesterday is past,

    but I get to decide what my future will be like. This is not a cliche. I will set my path toward my goals. I'm 17 and will graduate next May. No more stupid mistakes (that many assume girls make). I am an intelligent black young lady. You want to step with me you must come...

    Changed But Not Destroyed

    I know that trying to insist I'm not damaged because of my past is a waste of breath...and an outright lie.  I am damaged.  I have scars, both physical and emotional.So what?I am no longer that helpless child, that trapped teenager, or that paralyzed young adult.  I no longer...

    I've heard many women say,

    "I want to be just like my mother". I've never once in my life had that thought. Don't get me wrong, I love my mother. But she was never a good mom, even now at 27, I'm still not close to her. Yes, she made sure there was a roof over my head and food to eat, but that's pretty...

    Forgiving Myself

    What I have learned, am still learning, is to know who you are and set goals that are within your reach. Some of us have come from terrible backgrounds, others have made poor choices. We first recognize our faults and confront them. We must learn from our past and move forward...

    It's been a tough road so far.. I've had some smooth sailing and some really rough bumps... still going through them too..  People have hurt me, and I've hurt myself..  but I refuse to let things that others have done to me stop me from loving or living.
