    I feel like I'm surrounded with paths to choose

    from, and whichever path I take I somehow either keep going and find myself back at the beginning, or stop and turn back early on. I don't even know what to think or say or choose. Even simple choices like what item to buy in a game or what meal to choose from a menu is...

    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...

    My Last.....

    I started college about a year and a half ago and was beyond excited. High school was hell mostly because of my over zealous mother who instead of allowing me to embrace our faith my way forced her God fear upon me. I was sheltered to an extreme. And idk uhow but I end up on the...

    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...

    Who am I? Why am I here?

    What is this life all about? There is a deep longing to think about and to know these things. I wonder do we all think about this or do some people just live their lives without much contemplation. It seems to me some people inherently know who they are and what they're here for...

    Sometimes I want to scream just to feel the

    sound leaving my body. Then for once someone will hear me when I make a sound. I'll be important for that split second even if it is just because they are wondering if I'm insane. No I'm not crazy just lonely and sad. Don't mind me.
