    My Sob Story

    I spent 4 years and a small fortune earning my undergrad degree just to feel like I've learned nothing.  I went back to college to get a post-grad diploma for a year, and I'll be done in 3 weeks.  I haven't worked since the summer after undergrad because I feel like I...

    Nobody said it's going to be easy.

    who cares for you but that's never gonna happen

    Though I may be directionless like many other

    people challenge yourself to confront your demons and to be honest with yourself. Only then can you give yourself a fighting chance at living again. Not a guarantee at living but a chance.

    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...

    I'm not sure what to do anymore.

    My dream has always been to settle down with an older man. Someone financially stable, smart, funny, strong( both physically is mentally) and will take care of me. Have a life like back in the old days. I'll stay home, cook, clean and take care of the kids. Have date nights...

    Maybe the journey isn't

    so much about becoming anything, maybe it's about unbecoming everything that isn't you, so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.

    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...

    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...

    Oh am I lost, I have been lost

    for years. I feel like I barely know myself anymore. I have this 'idea' of who I am, who I want to be, but the world doesn't know who I am. I don't show who I am or act or live the way I want to. I feel like there are two sides to myself, the side who loves life and knows what...

    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...

    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. And a lot of times, people don't know what I'm ACTUALLY asking, they always answer with "Life is about living, and...

    Lost Expectations

    I have been exploring the idea that happiness can only be achieved when we have no expectations.  I believe all the pain we have in life is from not getting what we expected. Think about it: Lost Love: You never lose love.  You simply lose possession of that person...

    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...

    I kind of like it this way.

    Aimless. Each year not planned and completely surprising. This year does not resemble last and the last didn't resemble the year before. I don't see myself changing, but perhaps it's time to start having some long term goals.

    for the first time in 8 years, I can't keep this false marriage, I'm loosing myself and become the worse version of myself. I'm my own worst enemy of myself for not allowing to be happy.
