    A Quick Fix To My Indistinguishable Fire

    I’m attending counselling again. I’ve also been recommended for group therapy.  I like one-on-one counselling.  For me, it’s a good way to  work out my issues.  The group therapy I’m going to have to work on harder.  I imagine it will do nothing but good for me, but...

    Pretty much went to college

    for something I thought I'd love but now I hate it. It started months ago but I worked to hard to get here to quit now. If I quit I'll be in massive debt and have to owe money back ASAP. I'm mad and wish I would have thought about it more. At the time I was okay with this quick...

    Aww, another day goes past

    and dunno what to do. A positive for today was that I got some "alone" time for once. Been forever since I had some time out. Anyway, I went to go and see my all time favourite uncle. As soon as I got to his place, the first thing I did was go out and see how my car was going, I...

    Toe everyone in here

    who is true to their word, good for you. You know yourself, that's more than a lot of people can say for themselves. But that doesn't make the fact that you aren't okay go away. I don't know what to type to help you because I don't know any if your stories. But I do know that...

    Tears don't help. People are d*cks

    and that's never going to change so I just might as well do whatever the hell I want to.

    Sometimes I have to just put my own needs to

    the side and put a smile on my face while everyone else actually is serene. I am slowly becoming emotionless in a bad way.

    I Want To Be Real

    This is hard for me, I am almost 35, but I just found a book my wonderful grandparents gave me on my 7th birthday. I don't think I read it until now, but it really hit me hard. I love my grandparents, and they both passed away in the past few years. Anyway, I miss them...

    I'm totally ****** up.

    I'm late in life, no girl, no money, I skate downhill and I don't care about what people think of me. I miss something in life, I like to drink but I have different brakes. I've been in a deep depression few years ago and I didn't cure myself. I keep thinking about death and I...

    I'm Not Okay, I Promise

    I'm not okay, as a matter of fact. I have more issues than a magazine stand, and I happen to be quite stuck in terms of health, finances, and relationships. I can't bear to write yet another story that lists every single one of my problems, but I will assure you that I have tried...

    Nope

    Right now, I am not okay, I am very far from okay right now, but I am mangaging. I am waking up. I am doing what I have to do to get through the day. I am manging.

    When you have Tourette's,

    you can't pretend to be okay, even when you're not. People notice and understand there's something wrong with you. When you have social anxiety and you park your car in front of the mall, but end up driving home rather than shopping, then you're not okay. When you're deeply...

    The Truth About Love

    Maybe I'm wrong but all I've ever known about love is pain. I've fallen in love only to get cheated on. I've reinstated my faith in love only to become disappointed as I watch others around me cheat and lie to the ones they say they love. They all have the audacity to throw that...

    Mixed Emotions

    How I managed to overcome every tragedy that life has thrown my way this year, It's a miracle. When you feel your lowest, people expect of you to just jump up and be okay. But I'm not okay, but I'll manage because I don't give up not without a fight. Whatever happened yesterday...

    Since I met her, I haven't been able to get her

    off my mind. Last night, she had sex with my best friend. I guess they're a thing now. I know he'll treat her right, and that they're both happy. I know I'll eventually come to terms with it, and that everything will be okay. I hope someday I can stop feeling awkward around them...
