    I believe in myself. I believe

    that no matter the circumstances I'll somehow bounce back. I'm trying to hold on to the last strand of hope I have ..but sometimes having hope hurts too much :(

    Does anyone else feel torn up

    when someone else gets to do something you really want to? I have been trying to plan this trip to another state for half a year, but one thing after the other has made me start to feel like it wasn't a good idea. I was still barely holding onto the idea, when my friend comes in...

    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...

    Going Nowhere

    I feel like I'm doing nothing with my life and going nowhere. I'm stuck in the same rut, the same job, the same routine. I don't know what to do to break free from this cycle. I think that's how a lot of people end up joining the Army. Stuck in a life with no accomplishment, no...

    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.

    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...
