I Am Hopeless

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 289 People

    As far as I can remember,

    the question, "How do you see yourself 5/10/whatever years from now?" has always been hard for me to answer. I mean, if I imagine my future, I would be married to a man I love and has a happy family, with two kids, and with a stable life. Happily ever after, sort of. But no...

    I feel hopeless. At everything.

    I am majoring in biochemistry but I just can't see any future for me... I feel hopeless when I gaze at the man I'm falling for, when he's too busy chatting up his female friends. I feel hopeless when I remember my mum and dad have disowned me. I am just.. hopeless.

    I'm tired, and I want to sleep,

    but it seems like my mind wants me stay up as late as possible, so I get like 3-7 hours a night, or sometimes none at all. I get angry and can't control it, even at the stupidest of things. I sometimes just argue, sometimes shout, and sometimes even hit. I just want to be in...

    Hope...The Last Frontier

    The word "hope" is like a four letter word to me. I can't stand to hear it or even look at it. To me hope has become the only thing I have left to lean on and boy I am tired of it. That tightness in my chest and that "Oh God please let this happen" feeling are doing more...

    About 2 weeks ago I found I had cancer

    and my life has not been great these past years it feels like life is doing everything it can so it could just **** me. I lost my faith in God and also in humanity. So I was wondering how can things get better?

    I don't remember what long term happiness feels

    like anymore. I've been profoundly unhappy for so long, it seems like there is no other state of being. And it just continues to get worse. On paper, it probably looks like I have no right to feel like this. I have family who loves me, friends who like me, a roof over my head...

    I am so full of contradictions

    and I don't know which one is real, which one's the truth, which one's a lie and a fake. I don't understand how I can be both so hopeless and hopeful; how I can believe and cannot believe. I love myself. I am content. I am happy that I am the way I am and I'm glad that I turned...
