What keeps you up at night? What haunts your dreams, maybe even while your awake? Would you admit it? Is it something that happened to you or because of you? Are you afraid to let it define you? You run, and you run but do you know where your going? There’s a conflict within yet the more you try to understand the cloudier it gets. AM I HERE TO BREATH ONLY? Your plagued with the mistakes… the what if’s…. what could be’s… But you’re not meant to live in the past, you’re not meant to worry for the future. Your mistakes are great and your meant for the HERE and NOW! Everything that has happened to you defines you, whether you admit… whether you let that sink in, you are what your afraid of. Some days looking into the mirror is the hardest thing to do. Seems impossible to let you see…. You,...

To Whom it may concern: Writing this is the support worker that you have come to know ever so well over the past few years, or so you think. Your son/daughter was born with learning disabilities and you've fought their entire life for equal rights and the best quality of care. Your life has not been easy but has been worth it, they have grown and now face a comfortable, long future. A prospect that would of been almost comical not so many generations ago. The problem that you face now is entirely different. The world is changing rapidly and opportunities for supported, even independant, living are becoming more and more available. On paper it is perfect - 24/7 support provided with individual living space. Now you can stop worrying about the looming prospect of what happen when you...

My boyfriend and myself have been together for almost four years and there is no doubt in my mind that I will be spending the rest of my life with him. We have made our intentions known to one another and currently are enjoying saving up, traveling and planning our future together. Maybe I am overreacting or maybe I am not, I'm not sure. So many people come up to us - friends, family, co-workers, etc. and always ask "When's the wedding?" or "When are you going to get married?". The thing is, it is not your decision to make nor is there a proper timeline we should be following. We want to save up to make sure we start our lives together on the right foot. We want to have the wedding of our dreams without financially stressing out/wanting to kill one another. We want to buy a house...

Would you look at how far we've come! I think we all collectively share this grandiose view of the future and all of the fascinating advancements that will come along with it. It seems as if being human means that our only true desire is to make things easier for ourselves. It can always be faster. More reliable. Less issues. The longer we live on this planet the more we figure out what works versus what doesn't. This is wisdom. But somewhere along the way we became entranced in this idea that in order for things to become easier, we must make life harder to ensure a positive outcome. In the name of progress, this makes sense. You have to struggle in order to achieve the results you want. But what if we're confusing our inherent struggle for betterment with drama? Perhaps because the...

I hear a voice in the distance… What are we to do with madness? What are we to tell the children, the youth, the future when all around is burning? When the very fabric of our moral fibre is torn apart? As a child, my heart would beat like thunder at the very possibility of diversity. Colour meant one thing… vitality. It represented the sheer beauty in all things. The idea of hating a colour was as alien to me as the many galaxies spinning light years away. I am by no means a very religious man. I walk to the beat of my own drum. I feel what I feel, I love what I love and I strive to be better than I was yesterday. I have been surrounded by love, possibility, hope and strength for as long as I can remember. I have witnessed hate, violence, horror and felt loss. I see the darkness...

Hello There, You constantly pester me asking ‘’ When are you getting married?’’ What I want to shot back with is ‘’ Excuse me, why do you even think it’s your business???’’. But I can’t say that. If I do, the image I’ve depicted in everybody’s mind is going to get tarnished. That nice, soft spoken, kind girl who wears her big smile 24/7, can’t be snappy at anybody even in the times she’s faking it! So I have to be nice and give you response that you’ll accept. How unfair life is? If I’m not nosy about your personal affairs, why can’t you leave me alone? Let me tell you, why am I not married yet. It’s because I haven’t met ( or met but for some reason we had to be aprt) that person, whom I want to spend the rest of my life with, whom I want to grow older with, who I can’t live without...

I was an addict. I was a drug addict. It took me a long time to utter those words in my own head, let alone speak them out loud or pen them down. Looking back on my past as a drug user, I can tell you that we, us ‘addicts,’ never intentionally set out to become that way; we never intended to hurt ourselves, but most of all, we never intended to hurt you. We are sorry. I am sorry. Here is how it works: something strikes our lives that is not emotionally or physically bearable, and we seek help. Oftentimes that ‘help’ results in medication. At first, the medication is a welcome reprieve from the pain and torment our bodies and minds endure each day. We are trying to medicate against sad things like the death of a loved one, a physical injury, a disease, or some other emotional...

I think that transgenders should be able to use the bathroom that they are turning into. I don't think its right for a guy that wants to turn into a girl should have to use the guys bathroom when she don't feel that she fits in their. I feel that they should be able to use the bathroom they feel the most conformable in than happing to use the bathroom that makes me feel not welcome because they want to be a girl and not a guy. Some transgenders don't even feel the need to use bathrooms at school or in public because they feel unwelcome but I think they should be welcomed any and everywhere they go because they are just like us just changing their body parts.

Seems to me the narcissists and abusers have several things working to their advantage (NOT), in their twisted diabolical plans. The worst is SILENCE and ISOLATION. Parents and families who want to keep things secret lie because of shame or worse, getting caught. People either can’t fathom that someone could do such a thing (Thank God!): Or that any parent could allow it to happen to a precious child. If such a horrible truth were to be acknowledged as the travesty it is…Then surely something must be done about it! As conscious beings we are forced to make a decision on where we stand and make a decision on what to do, or not do about sexual abuse. Unfortunately, taking a stand is just to hard for some people. Even well meaning friends and loved ones if they can’t grasp why their...
