I Am Lost In Life

    Seems like this group fits my current

    predicament. I'm not much of a talker, I usually keep **** bottled up inside of me. Thing is though, I truly am lost in life right now. I am never happy. I just recently joined the Navy but ****** up on my ASVAB from lack of study (admittedly) and I did not pass my medical...

    Things are getting so dark,

    I can't see past it anymore. It's like it's there, on the forefront of my mind and I can no longer escape. I can't get over this, I can't carry this, I can't fight this... I'm barely holding onto what little of myself is left. Because I'm losing, slowly but surely I'm...

    I stopped telling myself

    that I'm lost. I'm not. I'm on the road with no destination, I'm just driving with hope that I'll find a place that i like and I'll stay there. I'm not lost, I'M ON MY WAY.

    Nobody said it's going to be easy.

    I gaze upon the verdant fields

    that mark my life, Lush hues to most...but gray to me. The shadows long begin to creep, Darkening my trail...blotting me. My compass failed, my heart is lost, I shiver against the chill tonight, I see the smiles of the ones I love, Who are blind to me...and my fight. My mind...

    I came to a recent understanding about my time.

    I am not to live by my own free will. My natural instinct directs me in a way that made me come to realize its not my own feelings I choose to live by but its the guidance of its creation that leads this life I thought I called my own. We share this body,we share this time and...

    My fiancee is moving back to her home state

    1600 miles away... I don't want to go with her. This is my home, a home I never thought I'd find again. I have to choose between the person who loves me and the the life I want to have. The pieces of my life don't fit together anymore. I don't know what to do.

    Fragile And Broken

    I lie awake into another nightmare. And I can’t find a place to lay my head. I tried to close my eyes but sorrow keeps me awake. It creeps inside slowly that I don’t even notice the tears starts flowing. I tried to make it go away, but still misery finds a way. There’s...

    It's incredibly difficult

    for me to live in this world. My head likes to put people into boxes, my head likes to suck in every stereotype and tries to make sense of the world that way. Stereotypes. Useless. The way I perceive life is painful, exhausting, barely explainable, I can't explain myself to...

    I feel like a failure,

    My husband and I are talking about divorce.

    He sleeps in a different room now. I am devastated. We have a toddler who is picking up on the disconnect. I suspect that my husband is bipolar. He goes through ups and downs every several months or so. When he is down, he says crap like "I don't love you" "I need to leave and...

    Cause and Effect

    I think you get lost in life when you let yourself get carried by the current of life.. you feel you have no say in what happens to you, but I believe in cause and effect.. so be the cause of your own life path and not just the effect of what life throws at you. God gave us free...

    I have days (many) when I feel very empty inside

    and dissatisfied... Today is one of them. Not necessarily because something has happened to make it a "bad day", just days where nothing satisfies some yearning inside me. I know I "shouldn't" feel this way by many standards; I have a good job, nice home, and a good family...

    What if this isn't real,

    what if none of this is real, what if we're just day dreaming. I often ask myself "what is life" And none of us (yes, none) will ever know the answer, ever.
