Feeling depressed
One of those dayz......</3 '-(

My name is Shannon. (yes!....a guy who is named Shannon right? :-)
All around normal guy. Dad to two grown kids, and an uncle to a lovable but bratty 14 year old niece who's gone been thru alot in school.

Love the kids but they seem to go thru alot of drama, heartaches, pain, and pressures than us adults ever went thru.<br />
They\'re our future and they need all the advice, love and compassion in this sometimes cold cruel world. Thats why I\'m here :-)

    So tired of hurting
    Im tired of the coldness. Of the loneliness. Of the pain. Tired of not being able to approach someone and give them a hug. Tired of careing but nobody careing bout me. Kindness and warmth is supposed to go both ways. It has nothing to anyone on just seems like the virtual world is kinder than the real world.And Im having a hard time dealing with it out here :(   ;-(… [more]

    I Worry About Those I Love
    I worry bout my brother, sisters, my mom and dad. I always have my daughter and son in the back of my mind. Even though they've both grown up I still worry. I worry bout my daughters marriage and my sons career. I fret about my niece. I wonder where she'll be in 7 years.They say worrying doesn't do a bit of good....but it still shows that you care.… [more]

    It's not a bad thing
    Somewhere here on EP I read post about someone raised as a child to hide your tears. "Don't cry", her parents said. Be strong. Strength is a relative term. Whats strong for one person is weak for another. Researchers have shown that crying releases endorphins and stress. Crying is a good tension relever! The problem here is that we've been taught to hide pain. Society has told us to "walk it off", and then we put up a facade. We bury our hurt under the nearest rug and hope we never see it again. But thats the problem. How could someone help us out if they don't know we hurt? And we wonder why people get depressed. We question how in the world could that person ever have committed suicide....… [more]
  • We can get lost

    Posted on: April 2nd, 2012 at 2:47PM

    Most of my friends know that I'm a geek. I love technology. The next high end computer system with 3ghz eight ore processor always perks my ears up. I love hearing bout the newest thing, Windows 8...Samsungs Remote Free tv, the newest In fact..if it wasnt for computers, I wouldn't have a job. But how much is too much? How far involved with our Xboxes, PS3s, cell phone apps, games on our PCs do we have to be before we realize there's actually a real world out there. Our TVs and monitors have become our best friends. We text on our cell phones and type away on our keyboards while on Facebook not thinking twice about what we're doing. We've become a touchless society. When I was a te… [more]


  • 10 things people do that annoy me :D :)

    Posted on: February 29th, 2012 at 8:52PM

    I got a kick out of this when I read it! LOL! :) 1. People who point at their wrist while asking for the time. I know where my watch is, Pal. Where the hell is yours? Do I point at my crotch when I ask where the toilet is? 2. People who are willing to get off their *** to search the entire room for the TV remote, but they refuse to walk to the TV and change the channel manually. 3. When people say, “Oh, you just want to have your cake and eat it too.” Damn right! What good is cake if you can’t eat it? 4. When people say, “It’s always the last place you look.” Of course it is. Why the hell would you keep looking after you’ve found it? Do people do this? Who and where are they? Gonna kick thei… [more]


  • You have a future

    Posted on: January 15th, 2014 at 6:09PM

    This is to everyone who's the ones who want the pain to stop....and the tears to end.To the ones who find out the cuts on the outside feel so much better than the pain inside. To the ones who cry at night with a pillow. To the ones who struggle to live day to day.The world is rough and it can be so damm cold sometimes and it seems no one is there to help you out. But there are. There are friends who want to pull you out of that hole.Friends who care....that someone whos shoulder you can lean on or arms to wrap around. A friend who will hold you and never let go.They're out there. You have a future.....where do you wanna be in 5, 10 years?Grauduation? Walking across that stage i… [more]


  • Just being there

    Posted on: February 29th, 2012 at 8:58PM

    Relationships come and go in our lives. Our hearts get touched by that one person and we feel happy. We feel loved. Yet the one person who you thought loved you....that one single person that you'd thought would be their no matter what simply leaves.......dumps you, making you feel like trash.Sometimes you don't even know what to do with yourself. It feel lost and it's painful at times.Sometimes things don't turn out as planned........Life never does.We just got to see another day as a wonderful opportunity to make the next day a bright wonderful one. To make the best out of it. To get up the next morning and remember to breath.... to place one foot in front of the other and liv… [more]
