I Am Questioning My Life

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 288 People

    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'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...

    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 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...

    So far up until this point,

    I have done my best to do everything the way it is 'supposed to be done'. I worked hard at school ( I wasn't an A* student but I revised my backside off). I never stayed out late, never tried a cigarette when I was young, never tried any drugs, didn't even get drunk until a...

    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?

    ****...

    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...
