    I think that things have gotten normal.

    Routine has set in for now, as well as work, but ... your name still arises sometimes. There have been some moments when I am having no trouble listening to my music again, that a specific song of yours comes up and catches me off guard. Sometimes I press 'next' as quickly as I...

    *WARNING: This will come out messy,

    but i don't give a ****. I've been reading a bit about how a man *thinks* and it's just all ajtsrjtlrtsje in my head - where men believe it's their duty to treat a woman as a treasure to be protected. And that for a man to value a woman as such... a woman can't value a man...

    Abortion was 8 months

    and a couple weeks ago.... We never got a due date, but it recently would have passed. We are both broken. She wanted to abort. I did not, I did not speak up, I did not man up, I did not open my mouth. I thought I was doing good by being supportive and putting all my faith...

    I have no idea what to do with my life.

    I'm completely lost. I never had "goals" or "dream jobs". I just got my Bachelor's degree in something I'm not even remotely interested and I took me several years to finish. 3 years ago started to work in a hostel. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience and I thought I...

    After being ******** from all medication,

    I am feeling much better. Although people are now saying that I am acting strange and out of the ordinary. I don't see anything different about myself other than the fact that I feel more complete and more myself. I've felt better all week, but today was weird. I felt better but...

    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...

    Every morning when I wake up,

    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...
