    I suffer alone, carelessly destroyed by love.

    This world a passing enigma I must endure until death steals my heart. This wasn’t how I imagined my life to end, but end it has, and I am lost. I can not dream for fear of loosing you again, I can not wake as the pain would grow to eat my very soul. What’s left is emptiness...

    I hate it when people comment on how happy I am,

    because I'm not. Not really. I cry constantly, it's so hard for me to wake up and even harder to fall asleep. I can't look in the mirror at myself, not properly anyways, because I hate what I see. I hate going to my friends house and meeting their parents and knowing how sweet...

    I have been responsible.

    I have worked hard. I have done the right thing. Why then does everything feel wrong? Family keeps bickering, they get sicker, they keep taking and prosperity is but a faraway dream... Why did I care when caring was never apart of 'the plan' They live in the past, they don't...

    I've exhausted all possible avenues,

    inside and out. My mind is melted, my heart is a mess. Where can you go when there's no more help out there?

    Life feels entirely pointless.

    I hate to be so existentially nihilistic about things in general. I can't grab onto time before it slips away.

    Lost & Wandering Aimlessly Through the Wasteland Called Life

    i am experiencing a horrible, life altering disconnect from self.  there is apparently no origin, no direction, and not yet a culmination; i don't know where i'm coming from, what i'm doing at the present moment, or where i'm going.

    A voice in mind keep whispering run,

    and day to day it's getting louder, it says run, run as far as you can, don't look back just run. Where am I supposed to run? Why do I have to run? What am I running from? uhhh I am just lost and I don't know how to shut the voice down.

    How do you tell a friend you need them?

    Like, how? They're busy with their own things, with their own issues, what makes me special enough to put more pressure on them? How do I tell someone that I'm just hardly holding together? How can I when they're already falling apart? Or worse, when they're all 'better' and...

    I honestly have a lot to work on when it comes to myself. I don't know how to change. It seems hard or maybe I'm just not making a conscious effort to TRY. What makes me happy I can't find in material things. People disappoint me and I find it hard to trust most people. I'm...

    I have this severely nihilistic feeling that all is lost. I have no idea where I am, where I came from, where I am going, or why I am here. Nobody does. Oftentimes, I think of the allegory of the cave. Are we all in a place that is only a fragment of reality? What is reality...

    You give and do for others till it hurts and when it does you keep going. Your legacy is the impact you've made on other people's lives. I've done this all my life expecting something. Good karma, spiritual fulfillment, close binds with others and yet all I feel is hollow. No...
