    Once again I vent off my steam by writing to

    this post. I just lost my job. I was underpaid yet I loved the workplace until I saw in my own two eyes, they were talking about something. I peeked at the glass window and saw an email about my work and see how furious and agitated my workmates are. Mistakes happen all the time...

    I keep losing everything.

    I left my phone in a public bathroom, my wallet was stolen at a bus stop, and I lost my keys three times this month. I have to pay for that ****, over and over again. The absence of all that missing crap is a constant reminder that I suck at even the basic tasks. Total failure.

    I've just accepted that I'm a horrible failure.

    I am just an expendable piece of society being the average white male. In school were taught that minorities are worth more and that women are always going to be successful. There's a reason why suicide rates are up for males. I've given up on life because it sucks so much...

    No friends. I pretty much just watch **** all day while ******* it. I had so many dreams when I was younger. I used to tell myself I'd be somebody someday. Somebody important. Now look at me. I get money from the government for being retarded. What is my life good for? Why am I...

    Nothing I do seems to be right I know everyone

    has a purpose in life but I feel like I've lost mine. I am fat ugly and stupid. I know I sound like a spoiled brat but this is honestly how I feel about myself. I don't know how to enjoy life.

    Nothing seems to be going right in my life.

    I used to be on top of my game and was enjoying a great life. I don't know what is going on anymore. Everything started when my relationship with the person I thought to be my soulmate ended. It all went down hill from there. I used to have a great career. People saw me as a...

    There's only one mortal

    who I love with everything in me. He just doesn't know. He's all I have really. I feel so sick to my stomach knowing he's unhappy. I can't even make him happy. I'm just a failure. :'(

    I've lost all ability to connect with other

    people. I am unable to truly show who I really am to another person because I am sure they will reject me, a set back I'm not sure I can handle. The only true failing lies in failing to try; in this sense I am truly a failure.

    There is not really much about him.

    He just stands there. I don’t know what emotions he is feeling, I just can’t tell. I don’t even think he has any. I can tell his face is old even though he doesn’t have any wrinkles. It’s a face that’s seen a lot. I think if I touch it, it will feel like touching old...
