    Cuz Im Broken...

    I don't know where to start. I feel so alone. I had a good friend, and now I'm pretty sure it is ruined. I don't know what to do anymore. I constantly feel like I am going to get sick. I feel really intense happiness in bursts, and then something will happen and I'll be bummed...

    I can't say its killing me,

    but I'm still bothered and annoyed. Just trying to move on and continue with my life and realize there's much more to the world than some jackass who lied to me.

    So I found a shoebox in my room today -- forgot what was in it and opened it up. It was filled with all the concert ticket stubs, travel plans, parking passes, little gifts, and other memories of you. I remember the day we broke up just like yesterday -- I told you how much I...

    Getting Stronger, One Day At A Time

    No matter what happened, breathe. You are here, you are alive. Breathe. The hurt and pain can go away, if you open your heart and release you anger. Breathe. The memories may last a lifetime, or you can replace them with better times. Breathe. You can have power over your...

    I tried to call my girlfriends earlier.

    ..two of them did not answer the phone and the other did not show interest in talking with me about my feelings for my ex and hand up the phone after 4 mins. It's good that I still have this place to write and express my feelings. I went on a date yesterday. This guy was very...

    Life's Game

    Anger swells inside my chest. Rage controlled I do my best. I look at the world with a cynical eye. I can not help but laugh and wonder why. My life is nothing but a joke. How could I have sat and hoped. Sometimes I think all is lost. I played Life's Game and I Lost!

    I believe that the saddest thing in life,

    is caring so much for someone & then one day, u'll look in their eyes & listen to them talk & realize that they are gone. All u see infront of u is a stranger with just a known name.

    Acceptance...Sort Of.

    Things change. People don't really change, your perception changes. The lens of your past shapes how you see your present. Maybe that's an incredibly selfish way of looking at the world: You look at someone and only see what they've done to you, be it good or bad. People aren't...
