I Am Discouraged

    I have been working really hard at my job,

    but I feel completed discouraged there. I feel like everyday I try to do my absolute best and I always fall short of my boss's expectations. I try to ask questions and understand what she wants me to do, but she never fails to point out every single thing that I did wrong or...

    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...

    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.

    Today I'm feeling very discouraged.

    It took my 3 days to get a halter on a yearling horse we have and I was finally proud of myself, like I had finally done something right. Last night I went out to feed everyone and decided to try and tighten his halter up a couple holes because it was too lose and he threw his...

    "Don't eat. Stop eating.

    .. because I asked you to." It's things like that from your mom that really hurts. I know I'm overweight. I know I have an eating issue. And at least for the moment, I have no health issues. I'm happy with myself... And if that...

    Hey guys, I'm just a discouraged person trying

    to find peace and tranquility in this world. But when I look around I see no uplifting events, everybody stabbing someone in the back. It's not how we should live our day to day lives and I want to create a movement to help bring peace back this his once great world.

    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...

    I am discouraged about everything right now.

    I'm discouraged about love, I'm discouraged about friendship, I'm discouraged about money/business. I was excited about a possible business venture to work with the local coffee shop and sell baked goods but when I brought it up i was basically laughed at. I have no prospects...

    I'm about to say goodbye to EP,

    Reasons are I'm so disappointed, sad, friends say they're your friends, but I believe actions speak louder than words. Hurts when I take the time to write an encouraging message to a friend's post saying this person is depressed, then the next day you go back to this person's...

    In the natural it seems like my life will be

    over after college. In the spirit it seems like it'll just be the beginning. The job market is crazy, getting into a graduate school in the field I want to go into seems impossible, I have to leave Mississippi if I'm going to change my life but I can't just relocate with no...
