    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 :(

    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...

    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...

    These past few days have been

    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...

    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...

    It's tough trying to stay positive.

    It's tough trying to believe in yourself, convincing yourself that you're as capable as everyone else when little thoughts of inferiority creep in so often. It's tough when you know how to help yourself, or at least make things better, but when you try to make things better...
