I Am Questioning My Life

    Look Ahead And See Nothing

    I see nothing but a boring, unfulfulling, unproductive, painful life for my future. A life without a partner. No productivity, no friends, just me alone in this house. I've tried to have the life I want but it never panned out. I don't want to grow old alone but it looks like...

    I Question...

    ...my life all the time. If I am doing the right thing or about what I should be doing. I can only hope I make the right decisions and everything goes the way I want.

    Who Am I?

    In a crowded room full of laughter, I am full of pain; Feeling empty but small; Who am I? Who am I really? Can someone tell me? Who can see behind the mask To the pain and guilt within? Who can really say they know me When I don't recognize myself...

    Well ive had a bad cough

    for a few weeks and so my parents made me go to the doctor with them to make sure it was nothing serious. Sadly, they noticed my self inflicted injuries and now i went from none to two daily medications. Also, everyone now knows and i feel like **** because of it.

    I Am Alone.

    I am alone. My life is good: loving family, close friends, good grades, okay appearance. But I am utterly alone. I live in my mind. What you see is just one of my personas. You think you know me, but you don't and if you did know me you'd wish you didn't. I am not a good actress...

    ....i'll Say

    Been questioning my life since the 8th grade. So many questions about my circumstances; why did things not go the way I wanted; wish I could get a do-over on somethings; would've tried things that I avoided; avoided things that I did or tried; or went the extra mile sometimes...

    I Am A Terrible Person

    I am a terrible person. I used to be normal, but somehow I have become awful. I'm not sure what it is. Sometimes mean stuff slips out of my mouth. I don't even realize it's that bad until later when its too late. I really want to be better, but I'm not sure how, and when I...

    Always

    I think this is my permanent state of mind.  Lately though, it has become more apparent.   A recent family bereavement has thrown us all out of sorts.  We are ok, but we are all looking around, realising how much and how quickly life is changing.  It is difficult to keep...

    No Conclusions, Yet...

    I've been on opposite sides of almost all spectrums: religion, art, kids, drugs, alcohol, sex-drive, money, family, friends, being busy. Yet, I have not made a final descision on everything. Why does it take so long to consciously choose and fully figure it all out?

    What Am I Doing

    I'm wondering if I'm on the right path. I had some things change at work in the past two weeks. I was supposed to take a new position, sell my house and move and have that nice suburban life you read about. Well, enter the lousy housing market (house on sale for 5 months...

    ****...

    Okay...so our relationships NOT based on sex. What IS it based on? You're never there. Maybe I don't understand you after all, but I've decided I'm going to give you the space you need until you're ready to come find me. So I hope that in the time that you're away you don't...
