I Am Hurting

    I totally set myself up

    for this. Here comes college and I have no built in support system (besides my family). I thought I had a great group of friends but over the past few weeks, I've been alienated from them, and I suppose they thought I fell off the face of the Earth. I AM STILL HERE. Although I...

    My leg hurts so bad. I'm pretty sure I bruised

    a bone in my knee which makes it ache to lift my knee but then to top it off I have torn cartilage in my knee that makes it hurt to bend my knee but when I exercise the adrenaline kicks in and I feel no pain only to later be crippled by it

    When someone you loves dies it doesn't feel

    real. It feels like a bad dream. I knew it was going to happen we both did but it doesn't feel real. I'm expecting a text from him saying "hey" but it doesn't come. Then I remember he's gone and cry all over again. It hurts so much.

    I just want to cry, all I do is cry

    and I'm tired of crying but I do not know what else to do, I feel my problems are insignificant, yet I get very worked up about them. Ever time I talk to someone they say, "you'll snap of it, or It'll get better" but that's just not true, I've been trying for three years to be...

    When you are hurting,

    there will always be people who find a way to make it about themselves. If you break your wrist, they’ll complain about a sprained ankle. If you are sad, they’re sadder. If you’re asking for help, they’ll demand more attention. When you get angry, there are going to be...

    Be careful to whom you give your heart.

    They may not care for it well or may even take delight in destroying it. There are some injuries that never heal.
