    My first term of university was amazing,

    hands down probably one of the most fun experiences of my life. However, second term came around and all the problems of life seemed to catch up with me. First, one of the most intense relationships of my life came back into the picture, the one with my biological father, vying...

    so rough for me I'm trying to be strong but my inner self is crumbling I don't know what I need to get better. I haven't taken my anti-depressants in a few days because I've been really busy and stressed so I figured that that's why I've been feeling so low. I hope things get...

    I am so unhappy in my marriage.

    I feel trapped. My husband is neglectful to me and my young children. The only attention we get from him is negative. I just don't know what to do.

    My strength is fading trying to fight the

    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 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...

    Once again I am standing at the edge of a cliff that just seemed to appear out of nowhere. I don't get it and I am allowing myself to have a momentary pity party (which has been atypical for a while). I am down for keeping a positive attitude. I am down for learning from my...

    Lost and hurt. Like I'm filled with loneliness

    even though I have people around me 24/7. I can't trust a single soul, I can't express what I'm felling. I'm used to just keeping my feelings inside, or write it in my journal. Like I just don't know when I'm ever gonna be able to just say what's in my heart. I don't like my...

    Do you ever wish that you had someone

    who you could pour your heart & soul out to? :( However when you try to, you are just so drained emotionally from everything that is going on in your head that you physically do not have the energy anymore :(
