I Am Not Sure What Direction My Life Is Taking

    Eyes Wide Open

    I really don't know where I am going and I don't have a map or even directions, but I have both hands on the steering wheel and I am holding on for dear life.  I only know where I have been and I am not going back there, so it's forward and lets get some distance between me...

    Weaving My Way Into The Constant Unknown

    Boy, oh boy!  I can't remember how long ago I joined this group.  By now I'd hopefully have some clue, eh?  *sigh *  What it must be like to have it all together . . . In the figurative sense I'm still not sure.  I've aspired to work as a hotel front desk agent for...

    Nobody's Life Is Perfect

    My narrative isn't a clean one. And neither is yours. Thank God. Thank god for messy, beautiful, fvcked up, exciting, happy, sad, and complex lives. Now let's all finally stop pretending that any other kind exists.

    I'm bisexual with a prefernce

    for women. But the thought of being in a committed relationship with another woman was inconceivable. My parents would never accept my relationship with another woman. Not that I need their consent, I'm an adult. But life seems much easier for me if I were to settle down...

    I grew up in a religious cult

    and have since left it. It isn't easy starting completely new. It's like being a foreigner in a new land. I have to learn a new language, way of living, and set of morals.

    My Fear Doesn't Define Me.

    I've only been living on my own for a little over a year now and I realize I have my whole life in front of me practically, but I'm scared. I'm not sure what I want to do with my life. Everyone tells me that it's perfectly fine and I'll figure it out, but I already know of too...

    I Don't Even Know Anymore

    I remember that when I was younger, I was able to construct strong opinions. They were based on facts, my point of view and on what I believed to be right for me. But now I'm not sure anymore. I always wanted to achieve something big. To become someone and to change something...

    So I'm going to try to explain exactly how I've

    been feeling lately. And it's so damn complicated that most of the time I'm not even quite sure what I'm trying to say. I feel like in not the same person I was in high school. So much about me has changed in less than a year. Even more has changed about how I view life and the...

    No Clue Where I'm Headed With So Much Lacking And So Much Uncertainty.

    Hi I'm 18 and like everyone else that commented, I can relate. I just started my second year in college and I've set my mind from wanting to become an ultrasonographer to a nurse to a physical therapist and now I'm leaning towards accountant. I genuinely wanted to become an...

    No Direction

    My life has never had direction or order in it. Maybe that's why I am so organised with certain things, because I'm trying to compensate for what I never had. I will cook meals a lot for my flatmates, offer to make coffee at precise times, do the chores, etc. Ever since I can...

    Why So Despondent?

    Things have certainly changed in the last few months. The most positive that has come about this year and that is that I am now a proper relationship, I have a great girl. I knew her back in college and she had feelings for me for a good deal of it and I had no idea. She let it...

    It's past Christmas and the new year is about to begin. I suppose it was Christmas time so I thought I could cut back a little and hang out on the Q&A section. Prior to this time I had been working but even so, my tendency to surf the net in my spare time is always strong and as...
