    Forever Alone

    Orson Welles once said: “We're born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we're not alone.” How true that is. For a lot of people, the solution to their loneliness is to find another. Don't...

    The Inside Out.

    The hardest part of holding on I guess it's letting go, for all I known so far, it's to watch things go throught my fingers, like little grains of sand, without been able to hold them. so whenever I Feel Alice is Close, I realized she never has been so far apart from me. and I...

    Yes, that is exactly the way I feel right now.

    I can't help but feel depressed and lonely all the time. I mean, my painting just got selected to be exhibited in a famous fine arts academy of my city but all I feel is sadness and how lonely I am! It's the same every single day. I've forgotten how to appreciate the good things...

    I once had these thoughts

    that one day I'd find clarity and it would be so freeing. I'd let go of everything and everything would fall into place. Id no longer have to protect so many things. Now I know that was a dream. That clarity didn't create freedom or peace, it's thought provoking and makes you...

    We all feel like we're alone.

    Some every day, others only feel it a few times in their life. But we all feel it. The important thing to remember is that no madder what your situation. There is someone else in the world who feels the same, or at least would understand.
