    No Friends. Happy With It.

    I'm age 69. I went 80 miles per hour for fifty years, many Saturdays, many Sunday afternoons, sometimes two jobs. Manager of the year in 1978, again 1979. Got cocky. Since 1980 I have been demoted, fired, hired, rehired. I have lived with 22 year old college grads with a little...

    Sometimes I want to just give up.

    .. but then I remember I have a boyfriend who loves and needs me. I can't help but feel lonely though. He feels lonely too. but is it sick to say that I'm okay with feeling lonely together? That it helps I'm not alone in feeling alone?

    When Something Bad Can Happen, It Happens.

    I think my life basically ended last August. My dad got really sick and was in the hospital for 5 months. They told us he was dying there was nothing they could do for him. Somehow he made it, but he can't walk or talk. I think it almost would have been easier if we would have...

    I thought I found something worth holding on too. I thought I'd be happy again finally! I was so excited about what was to come. And now, nothing. In back to square one. My depression and anxiety have just come straight back and I'm so lost in life again I just don't know what...

    But why should I be? It can't be due to only my

    negativity, as I feel I am negative due to being unhappy. It takes so much effort to say a single nice thing to counter any negative. Is that surprising? I'm not surprised. Life has shredded me from a young age and I don't know why. A lot of it was easily avoidable if...

    I Wonder If I Ever Have Been

    My life has consisted of many great moments, but I can't remember a time that I've really been happy for any period of time.  Maybe I crave drama.  Maybe the intense emotions, whether they be sadness, anger or fear, do make me happy.  I once had someone tell me...

    I'm feeling very confused and the last 24 hours have been toying with my emotions. I'm not quite sure what I'm feeling, I'm just kind of numb. I've got so many questions, I've got doubts myself. it's hard for me to see straight when my head is so fuzzy. I wish I had everything...

    I love it how people walk all over you,

    making you believe them, and once they are done with you, without even telling you, they kick you under the rug, and pretend you never existed.

    I thought people or a person was suppose to make you happy. Clearly, I am wrong. I think the goal now is to figure out what it is inside that will make me happy. I've set small daily goals for myself. Like one is not to complain. I never notice that I complained so much till my...

    For me, life feels like I only have to keep going because I have no other option because I'm not brave of killing myself. For me, life doesn't have dreams, just objectives that will make feel distracted. Maybe you don't feel that life is like that but for me is meaningless. Yes...

    I find it easy to feign happiness,

    it's very simple actually. All you have to do is fake a smile and make a few jokes. No one even sees through the facade, it's really astonishing what a fake smile can hide. Make no mistake, I am content with my life and grateful for all that I have but these materials cannot...

    I miss the feeling of being happy.

    Everything in life is just so depressing for me and there's nothing positive for me to see. I feel so lonely, family isn't doing too well, and I'm struggling to cope with life. I don't want to die, but I don't want to live either.
