    I've cried, stressed, argued, fought,and let my brain go into overdrive. I can't do it anymore.

    Too tired.... my brain is analysing things too

    much. I am extremely exhausted!!! I wish I can stop for a second not thinking about things. Thinking is good, but thinking too much is not good. Good night, everyone! :)

    I have been crying all day.

    I can't control it. It is draining. Wish I had someone to talk to. Wish I had someone to hold me.

    I am so tired of being

    so tired. Some days I just want to curl under my covers and never come out. Never see the sunshine again. Just lay under my duvet in the musty air and cry. Those days the hardest thing to do is let my foot touch the floor, because that means I have to stand up, put a smile...

    I really wanted to have a nice,

    fun, family day today. The criticisms and negativity from him started as soon as I got in the freakin car. I simply ignored the comments about how I backed out of the driveway too slow, how I always turn up the heat so high, how I take so long to get change out of my pockets...

    Strained. It's what I feel it all has become.

    I can't even be angry, not mad at all. It's just...too sad. The choices we make in life, some good, some bad; I can only hope to learn from them. Incoherent, my head is spinning. I'm so upset, so sad, I'm wondering how you could treat me this way, and why you can't just...

    Letting myself go means forgetting my feelings,

    devaluing my worth, comparing my existence with that of an inanimate, material object, left at your disposal. How could I have reached this limit feeling so limitless, so devoid of boundaries? Faithless, yet overwhelmed. Nobody could be so unlucky than to deserve me. The...

    I'm emotionally numb now.

    I was supposed to get married after graduation and I really fought my family over this issue, since it's an arranged engagement/marriage and all. My family tried to convince me several times to get married earlier and continue my studies thereafter but I wanted to finish off...

    It's crazy how much has changed

    since Christmas. I feel like my heart has been ripped out of my chest, stomped on repeatedly and then forced back in. It's ironic how the first time I fall in love, that it ends so horribly. He went away for Christmas and slept with someone else. I can't even explain how it felt...

    At what point do you catch back up from this

    form of exhaustion???? Even when you feel like you have, (or you give up not really sure) it all piles up again some how and it seems to be a vicious cycle some times

    Emotionally dead. I have been

    for a while. I spend many days trying my hardest to zone out, especially last year. I often ask why bother. Why not just give up? The only thing that keeps me going to false hope for the future. I've considered giving up many times, but I've been too cowardly. I decide to wait...

    Why do girls always continue to love

    and want the guys who hurt them? Here I am hoping to hear from someone who supposedly loves me, who for 3 days has been barely talking to me and ignoring me. Talking is pointless, because it turns into an argument, an argument I can never win because I'm always "wrong". I feel...

    Emotionally. Physically.

    Mentally. Everything. I am freaking cooked. I do it to myself. Sometimes I feel like putting out fires is my only job, or preventing the onslaught of ones to come. I have to remember I'm doing this for a greater cause and that these efforts will pay off. I'm giving everything...

    My best friend is driving me insane.

    I may have to cut ties with her to stop myself from going crazy. She drains me emotionally, I can't do it anymore. She always dates guys who don't treat her well. She complains to me about them and I tell her the same thing over and over, get out. It's not good to date someone...

    At times when I become overwhelmed by emotions

    I completely detach from the world. At first it wasn't too big of an issue. But longer I'm here and more often I return, the harder it is to return back to earth. My body numbs, my head aches, I feel a pain yet my soul is detached. I have a form of amnesia, after a certain...

    I think I finally hit my breaking point.

    I'm now at that point where if people want to actually be a part of my life, they'll make sure they talk to me and try to act like they care. I'm tired of the fake people. I'm tired of the lies. I'm just tired. I'm worn out and I'm emotionally broken. I shattered. I'm completely...
