    Lost

    I don't believe in anything anymore. I am empty except for this hole in my chest that aches. Maybe all the terrible things people say about me are true. No more fairy tale endings, no more meaning to life. Just work, then die. **** it.

    I've always tried to stay positive about life

    but lately that has been getting harder and harder to do. I am so sick of feeling replaceable and just unwanted. Once a year I get to go to the big city and see my "friend", every Halloween. Last year when I went we had tons of fun, danced all night and I really loved it. I...

    At least one time in everyone's life we get

    slapped in the face with realism. When this happens we do 1 or 2 things. 1. We fight what is making us feel bad. 2. We cry and get frustrated over said discouragement. I am now going through the biggest slap in the face I have ever experienced. I'm not even sure I can recover...
