I Am Questioning My Life

    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?

    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...

    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 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...
