I Am Confused About My Life and Where I'm Going

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 243 People

    Ever since I was a little girl,

    I knew I wanted to grow up to be a person who selflessly helped others. My dream was to join the military as soon as I could. For reasons I have no control over, that dream will always be that, only a dream. I accepted it and am ok with it now. No sense in wasting life dwelling...

    I Feel Confused

    Ever since the beginning of this year, there was this guy who always messed with me. Messed with me by doing things like poking me, always having to stand by me, sit with me. And for the first month or two of me knowing him, he had a girlfriend, and after a little while, he'd...

    There's so much going on in my head right now.

    It's so hard to know what path to take, who to trust and what changes if any to make. One thing is I do know; I want to live life to it's fullest before I die.

    Is This True , Or I'm Just Kidding Myself?

    “I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not...

    Maybe Someday

    But then I guess that's half the fun, watching your life unfold.  I thought my life would be a straight road, that I would finish high school, get a job, fall in love, get married and start a family.  I didn't have any idea what was in store for me.  Still haven't married and...

    It's A Little Bit Harsh

    My friend tells me that I never help him during classes, while he always help me whenever I needed something. The problem is, during classes, he would ask me questions; yes, while the professor is talking. He would often do that, then I will always ask him to wait until the...
