    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...

    ALTHOUGH It Keeps Trying

    I KNOW THAT THIS, TOO, IS ONLY A TEST. I'VE MADE SO MUCH PROGRESS OVER THE LAST YEAR. I WILL NOT GO BACK. I AM TRULY BLESSED AND I HAVE NO PROBLEMS REALLY. OK, MY EXTENDED FAMILY DOESN'T KNOW HOW TO ACT AND I CAN'T ATTRACT A LOYAL FRIEND IN THE REAL WORLD TO SAVE MY LIFE. THERE'S...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Breaking the Cycle

    I have dealt with a lot of crap, from having an alcoholic father that my mentally ill mother finally left, then ending up with a stepfather who is verbally abusive, feeling like I wasn't good enough ever, spending a lot of time with guys because I wanted to feel...

    Mark My Words...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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...
