    Empathy, Not Sympathy

    If I described myself as a lonely middle-aged alcoholic you'd probably think I was going for the Sympathy Vote, but that's not how it is at all. I know how things are, I don't blame anyone else for the way things are, and I know I still have things better than a lot of folks. I...

    "Life Is What Happens To You While You're Busy Making Other Plans"

    So today my family and I celebrated my birthday today (though my real birthday was the 10th), and to be honest with you, I was not looking forward to it. I've been sorta depressed since Tuesday because I'm a year older and I still haven't done jack **** with my life. That is, I...

    I am going to be OK This is not an easy thing

    to say The pain I live with Shifts only slowly It is old, heavy I balance like a lifter I have no way of Knowing how long I Can feel this strong In the recognisation That my sight is clear When I am winded; That it cannot be A breeze of hope that saves me But by a blow of...

    Go Into The Light

    I wish someone tells me

    that I will be okay now. I'm not sure if what I'm doing is the right thing. I'm scared and struggling inside.

    Sometimes I get worked up about things

    and I take things to heart really quickly but despite that, I get over things pretty quickly with just concentrated periods of emotion and depression that last a few days. Once those are over, I'm sure I'll be okay. The worst will have passed and I truly believe that I will get...

    I'm more afraid of never knowing than fearing the unknown itself. The unknown does not scare me. What's there to be scared of? I will be fine no matter how my life turns out. My life will not be over when I get rejected or turned away. I am starting to understand that maybe...
