    There's no hope for me.

    I can't stop drinking and doing drugs I've been through rehabs. I just wanna escape reality. I'm very uncomfortable in my own skin. I have no self esteem. I just got out of an abusive relationship. Found out my girlfriend cheated on me 3 times. One with my next door neighbor. Ha...

    I wonders if hope is the same

    as fear but with better letters? Is it all that's left when nothing is left? Does hope even exist or is it just a made up word to placate us until the inevitable occurs?

    It's not a nice feeling.

    😞 I practically have no friends and no job and I'm considering going to see a Doctor about my anxiety but I know I'll probably be too coward to go. I feel like I can't do normal things and it's holding me back. Im also scared that I'll sink deeper into this hopelessness.

    Things have changed for the better,

    yet I still feel hopeless. I don't know why. I think I've been so use to the feeling that it's honestly hard to let go of. Maybe that sounds stupid, maybe I am, I just don't know how to let go of it. How do you let go of hopelessness. How do you let go of fear?
