    The Weight Of Sadness

    I'm sad. Not the sit around feeling sorry for yourself sad. Not the self-pity type of sad. Not the cry-all-the-time sad. Not even the on-the-verge-of-tears sad. Nor the I-forgot-how-to-laugh-and-smile sad It's not the sad that breaks your heart, for there is nothing left to break...

    This ADD has just been driving me mad.

    I cannot begin to explain how much it depresses me that I just can't have a normally functioning brain with a sane mind. Is it too much to ask for to be able to focus on something? To be completely attentive? To not get distracted by unimportant stimuli in my surroundings? I...

    Does anyone have those nights

    where you just lay in your bed and curl up in a ball, wrapped up in a blanket and you just cry? :(

    When somebody tells you

    that you always mess everything up, your worthless, and they hate you all the time. You kinda start to believe it

    I am deeply sad that 39 of my stories were

    removed from EP today. That is 39 incidents of thoughts and feelings (and excitement) that I shared. I never talked about anything illegal, was never gratuitous or vulgar, and my stories were about the thoughts and feelings I have about becoming more sexual as I turned 40...

    I Am Sad.

    I am sad for me. And I am sad for you, too. I am sad that the earth is hurting, and so are her people. I am sad that corporations and government are synonymous. I am sad that millions of people have nothing to eat. I am sad that trees are being cut down every second. I am sad...

    I always get randomly sad

    and depressed at a certain time in the year and it usually happens in December and May. I just want to know why this happens. It's just random and there's no explanation for my sadness at all, it just sneaks up on me... Just why?

    So many children, regardless of age,

    are being abused by their parents and there is nothing we can do about it. I wish I could save everyone of them and show them what true love looks like.

    so many people out there who live a horrible life, if I only I could change things for all of you I would in a blink of an eye. No one deserves to suffer and no one has the right to inflict pain on other people. So all those people out there who are facing life with hardships...

    I'm Sorry My Sadness Makes You Uncomfortable

    I'm not "fine". I'm not even okay and I'm certainly not good. What's worse is that I haven't felt that I have the right to feel anything less than "okay". I have felt as if I don't have the right to feel sad. I have been shamed for feeling sad. I have been invalidated in such...

    Endless Tears

      To cry alone.  It is better then the rain.   At least then no one can see my hurt.   It seems the cold of winter comes through to the center of my soul so often.   It comes more then once a year.     The sadness in my heart; it is...
