    Pushing Myself Into A Corner

    I am still at the young age of 15. Yet at this point in time I have already manage to evaluate the world down to the very basics. I have looked at life so hard that hardly anything has any real meaning to me, life is honestly more of a hassle to me then an actual experience now...

    I Often Feel That There Is Nothing That Will Ever Make Me Happy If I Can't Share It With Anyone Ery

     I'm so psychologically damaged and although I'm pretty, smart, fun, I just can't seem to ever want to see anyone more than once.. I can't seem to want to get close to anyone as I feel that I am not able to be normal and become very crazy or psycho with them eventually...

    Vicious Circle

    I sit in the back of the classroom. I never speak up. I always get that sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach whenever there's a possibility that I will get called on to ask a question. In one of my classes, I am one of two girls, and she's the only one I ever talk to in that...

    Pretending to be happy daily is exhausting.

    Being alone is not that scary as compared to being with someone who makes you feel alone.

    I have always been this way

    now at age of 22 , I really fear that may be I will be this way forever. Not that anything is wrong with being alone but it hurts sometime when you see people in love, and that thing is not happening with you. Sometimes I am okay with being alone for rest of my life, and that...

    I Think I Might Be Meant To Be Alone

    I'll be 28 in about 2 weeks, and I feel like I'll always be alone. I go to the movies alone, I go rock climbing alone, I go scuba diving alone, I go out to eat alone, I go to the gym alone, basically I do everything alone. Maybe that's just how it's supposed to be.

    Hoping Without Hope....

    My fear and insecurities get the best of me, they tear me apart and leave me broken time and time again. For I know I need love (and to be loved), it is what I yearn for and crave.... But for the life of me, I will never look for it or try to get it. I push people away...

    I Know Why I'm Alone.

    I have male friends interested in me, but I pick them apart to such a degree that they can't stand looking at themselves anymore. I tear them down into little details until they don't feel like humans but rather a chart on virtues and vices. Then, if that doesn't work I push...

    Never Connecting...

    I am convinced that I will not find a person that shares enough in common to really become connected with me. If it isn't one thing, it is another. I'm not good looking enough, I'm too smart, I'm not laidback, I don't pay enough attention, and so on. It's exhausting trying to get...

    I've Cursed Myself

    My father had a horrible temper.  He could make you feel lower than worm-slime with a simple tone of voice.  He also hit. To his credit, every time we got into it, he would leave me alone for a bit and then come and apologize to me.  I spent the majority of his...
