By Zu on October 18, 2018 / 64 views

Hi! My name is Zu and I have an important story to tell. I have a friend called Kat and he is an absolute hot head. His ego is sky high and his pride higher. I have known him since I was 6 and ever since I first met him, I’ve looked up to him. He was never afraid and was strong, I really admired him for that. We would do everything together, go running through the woods, fishing at the stream...

This is my family's story from a poor, broken background that I've been meaning to share for a long while. Life can be really difficult for many of us and I feel like I have something to offer to those of you that feel low, unmotivated, or stuck in a difficult situation. It's a bit lengthy, but definitely worth the journey :) So! On that note, here I begin. (This starts off pretty...

By A Friend on October 17, 2018 / 114 views

I haven't been this genuinely happy since I was 9 years old, and I'm 23 now. This is not a joke or an exaggeration, throughout all that time between then and now I've been depressed. I recently stopped going to therapy because I don't feel like I need help anymore. And I'm finally on medication that works for me. Every little achievement brings me joy because I'm finally not miserable....

By A Friend on October 15, 2018 / 353 views

A friend and I did a drive to collect costumes for the kids at the domestic violence shelter. We were camped out in front of Walmart and we'd ask people to grab a costume while they were inside and this was pretty effective. About halfway through our day, a van stopped in front of our table and a woman got out. She said she used to own a costume shop and slid open the van door. I'll never...

"For what it's worth... it's never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There's no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet...
