    I hate complaining but I'm sick of feeling like

    an option . I have people who say the love talking to me but rarely do or put little to no effort in , I feel like no one actually wants to talk to me . I feel used and stupid .

    I feel so horrible inside.

    This is tearing me apart. I love you. I love you. I want to find you, but I know you fear and hate me. It wasn't me. It isn't me. Please find me. I love you. F*** this hurts.

    I used to believe that I'm a strong person.

    That every time I screw up, there's always another round to make up for past mistakes. However, before I know it, I keep on finding myself still trapped in quicksand. I don't even know where to begin with. Everything that's just been happening to me seems like, there's nothing...

    I am too sensitive and too emotional.

    I care about people too much and I have so much emotions that I cannot control. I am a guy so I always get told to 'be a man' since most people expect men to be tough and confident. Never cry and positive all the time. Sadly, I don't have any of those qualities no more because...

    "I didn't want to wake up.

    I was having a much better time asleep. And that's really sad. It was almost like a reverse nightmare, like when you wake up from a nightmare you're so relieved. I woke up into a nightmare." Ned Vizzini, It's Kind of a Funny Story

    I just turned 30 a few months ago

    Each day I grow emotionally weaker and weaker. Every crush that I have ever has ended up in failure which makes me think that I'm a failure. I have no hope in myself anymore. Whenever I buildup confidence to talk to a girl that I like, it just gets shot right back down because I...

    Is There Anyone Out There?
