I Am Overwhelmed By Life

    I left the house for the first time all weekend.

    Life can suck, it's full of users,

    liars, ********, etc. People that don't think twice about how their actions or behavior towards people will affect them. This is just the sad state of the world. Those people exist. Why are they that way? There is no answer to this question and trying to figure it out will drive...
