    Thinking you've made a connection with someone

    and become close friends, then to all of a sudden have them completely ignore you without reason is a horrible thing. When you're already insecure it makes you over analyse absolutely everything you do and causes a severe lack of confidence. That happened to me lately and I...

    what's there to live for? How do you find meaning and purpose in your life, have something or someone to live for when nobody cares and appreciates you? No one takes the time to tell you how much you mean to them. No one takes the time to be there to listen and support you...

    My brain literally won't shut up right now.

    The voices will win tonight. "Cut" they say. "Nobody loves you," they say. They are too strong. I'm tired of trying to fight them. I'm slowly loosing this battle.
