    I Dont Know Which Way To Turn

    My heart tugs in different directions. Which way do I trust? I need security, but I long for advancement. I value honesty, but hear plenty of lies. I scream when I need to be held, yet I push when your near. Hmmmmm.... why? Im on an emotional roller coaster.

    I Want Off!

    This is one ride I'm getting tired of!  I've done the merry-go-round, the bumper cars and the twister.    And I managed to get off all of them.  But the emotional roller coaster seems to be a ride I can't get off!  It's making me nauseaus!    I...

    I feel like every time something good happens

    something bad always happens shortly after that to ruin it all. I feel so good and then I feel terrible. Its like an emotional roller coaster and I wish everything could be fine.
