    I've wondered for a long time

    if I am emotionally repressed to some degree. I feel as though I go through the motions of daily life, showing the emotions I am expected to show without (always) feeling it. You can tell when I truly find something amusing because I laugh really loud, otherwise it's an...

    This life is tiresome,

    boring, and predictable. People do not change, and it’s come to the point where I can look at a lot of people and see no difference in them and the person standing beside them. Everyone says the exact same things, day in and day out, thinking it’s a new exciting story when I...
