    Most of the time I'm feeling calm and quite content. On general I think I'm happy with my life as it is. But, and that's a big but, when I get emotional I get really emotional! The worst thing is when I'm in love or having a crush. I'm then having some hard time trying to get...

    Yesterday

    Sitting in the car with him, explaining why what he's doing is wrong. Listening to his rationalizations, his excuses. Growing tired and weary of it all. Hearing the same promises all over again and wondering how much more of this I can take. I am feeling very alone, with no one...
