    So Feed Me

    This endless yearning for reciprocated feelings is practically unbearable. I swell up with this sense of alone and have to cry sometimes to simply drain myself and start the empty "filling" all over again. I don't even know if that makes sense. It haunts me. I know...

    Emotionally Deficient !!!

    This is a touchy topic. Yes, I feel emotionally starved and that too a lot !!! And has been like this from the time i can remember. Even when I was in a relationship earlier, i always felt that there is a void in me that is not getting filled. So i have kept on looking for that...

    You consider just about every moment not spent connecting to someone a waste - if not connecting to someone, at least to something such as music or a job. I didn't grow up in a broken home or anything and I get more than enough affection from my family but somehow despite all...

    Thanks Mom

    I just got an email from my mother that her boyfriend's brother is about to die. What does she want me to do about it? I guess the logical thing would be to comfort her but when my best friend died a few months ago all she said was 'I didn't know he was that sick.' Didn't pass on...
