    I'm gonna be blunt. I think I'm subconciousely

    turning myself into a sociopath and it's sort of freaking me out. I don't feel the way I used to and I'm not empathizing as much. I saw a dog get ripped in half when it was ran over and I wasn't any type of horrified. If anything, it was a twisted kind of curiosity. Even when I...

    I've changed so much in the past six months.

    I've lost a lot of weight. I've become so untrusting. I've lost sight of the morals I once held so high. It feels like i'm always too serious and uptight. I've become a pessimist, always complaining about something. I feel lost completely. And I'm not happy with who I've become...

    I used to be funny and carefree

    and happy just a few months ago but now I just lost all that's happened over the past few months. The people who made me feel where I belonged left and I'm left here like a piece of crap paper. I'm working on being who I was back because I miss that me.

    I was so happy. Sooooo happy the beginning of

    2014. I had a sense of humor, no anxiety, no vagueness, no monotonous behavior, the only thing that could bring me down was my best friend dying. Anyway, I was happier, more carefree, I was myself. But then my best friend had begun hanging out with different people and I felt...
