    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'm sad that beliefs can come between friends;

    even people who share a relatively common outlook on things. It's nobody's fault ... it's just..sad. Nothing more to say.

    My 81 year old grandpa died today.

    I'm kinda not surprised because he's been sick for so long but I'm still very sad about it. I didn't want him to die!!!

    I'm not feeling today

    for a lot of reasons. Like...I'm so sad to the point of my chest hurting. The first reason that I'm sad: tomorrow will mark a year of my mum's passing. The second reason that I'm sad (and it may be a stupid reason): 11 months ago, I met this guy. We quickly became friends. Like...

    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...

    Feeling sad with no clear reason,

    is much worse than knowing why you feel incomplete. At least when you know what's going on, you can try to fix it.

    I carry a great amount of sadness within me,

    but I usually keep it buried and rarely take notice of it or let it show. I hope one day I can set it free when I have achieved what's necessarily and can live my life the way I want to ;)

    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...

    I'm constantly sad. Sometimes

    for actual reasons. Other times for no reason at all. It's not like I have much to be sad about, I mean, my life really isn't that bad, tons of people have it so much worse than I do, I know that and I realize that, but I honestly can't help this feeling of eternal sadness that...

    I don't have any friends really. Maybe 3 friends I see regularly, plus my boyfriend. And I only see them every couple of weeks. I don't do anything all day, I just sit in my room and smoke pot (if I'm lucky enough to have it), watch Netflix, and wait for it to be the next day. I...

    Last night I was having strong physical

    sensations of being touched again. I KNEW it was a flashback of some kind and not demons because I specifically sensed there were no demons around as it happened. Still it was upsetting. I'm not sure how long it lasted.

    She was sad. Not sad to the point

    that she wanted to die. But sad enough that she couldn't fake a smile. Sad enough that tears did fall every now and then, and dried up too.
