    Some Quotes I Found Interesting

    "I stare and gape at Sunday in the park couples, sidewalk strollers. Fingers laced, heads on shoulders, hearts laid bare. Audacious high wire artists soaring net-less, oblivious or brave. Arrogant idiots I muse from my spectator view. Hoping no one hears the screaming inside my...

    I’m sitting here watching them have their private conversations, excluding me from whatever it is they’re talking about. I don’t know why it bothers me so much that they do. But it does. I worry to, and I know, truly, that I don’t have the right answers to the questions...

    I don't know what my purpose is in life,

    and I am incredibly lonely. I'm extremely extroverted but today and some days, I just feel like I want to crawl in a hole and die. Like I'm not worth the light of day, or something. I am out of my body, and right in my own way. Depression runs in my family, and I'm usually the...
