Being here helped me to realize the meaning of some lyrics I heard many years ago... "I saw ten thousand people, maybe more... People talking without speaking, people hearing without listening, people writing songs that voices never shared and no one dared disturb the sound of silence...." This place was an outlet for so many, but was never actually helping anybody... We can hear everyone's fears, talk about our pain at every opportunity, release our feelings through words, but the only thing we aren't doing: is learning to face our demons and stand up for ourselves. There's so many more stories, experiences and things I'd love to share in the hopes that someone is listening... But what will telling my secrets to the Internet accomplish? Just more people reading about how sick I am without offering to help in any way...? Telling the world about my problems, but never doing anything to fix them...

As it closes, I've learned that living isn't about telling stories about my life, so much as it is about making stories and memories about my life. We aren't our past, we aren't our mistakes and wrongdoings and we aren't our good choices either... We are ourselves and that's worth more than anything else...
