    Omg I Feel So Overwhelmed And Confused About So Much

    I am 8 months pregnant and I have been supporting my jobless boyfriend. On Thursday I found out he has been cheating on me and sleeping with other women in my bed when I am at work. Why is it so easy for me to forgive him? I have decided to move out Sunday and he doesn't know. I...

    Lost In Depression

            I have no skills, no great education and horrible self esteem. I was born disfigured, and have spent the majority of my life hiding away as an outcast. I barely have any social skills, I get terribly anxious around too many people, I almost always wear dark...

    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...

    Cast away in light or day,

    I lay on the floor in my living room

    and stare at the wall all day. I then roll over and face the back of my couch at night. Repeat. I am alone. No one hits me up. No one responds to my messages. When around people I am lost. Nothing helps the loneliness and depression. Read my other posts, I'm about to explode...

    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.

    Poetry is my release, philosophy my tokens of thought. I always wanted help, but I am glad that I was never found. I would love to be special, but that is unattainable in this world. I never knew myself, and I'm unsure if I ever will. Life is about satisfaction, and I think...

    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...
