    I used to think being sad was ok

    because in the grand scheme of things my individual feelings didn't matter, I was working towards a career in helping others. I am increasingly realising though that the profession I'm entering is becoming more and more business orientated, to the point that I feel working in an...

    I Know...

    that so many people are sad, no money, no health, no compassion, no love, no hope, no food..each person has a reason. If I compare my life with others I have no reason to complaim, I am still thankful for what I have...but I am sad.

    Ever get the feeling

    where one second your life feels like it's going so well, then all of a sudden something happens and all your happiness comes crashing down...? That's exactly how I feel right now. :(

    So Sad

    I waited for you for so long. I watched my phone, every night, waiting on a phone call that somewhere in the back of my mind I knew I’d never get. I just wanted to hear you say that you were sorry for what you did, and that maybe you wanted to get back together. I hoped and...

    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...

    It probably seems to everyone on here

    that I'm just a Debby downer and sad ALL THE TIME. But I'm not, I just like to feel some kind of comfort when I'm sad, and I find it by writing about it(not really from what people say but just letting it out). I am happy and positive. Not right now, but I am sometimes.

    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...

    Hurt

    That moment when you feel like your heart has a massive hole and you can feel every ounce of blood pumping and the tears run from your eyes.. They don't fall because it hurt you and realizing that things will never be the same again.

    I try my hardest to be a positive person

    and to have positive thoughts but I just can't. The sadness that is inside me seems to never go away. Bad memories over empower the good ones and they swarm my mind, especially at night. I feel like it's draining the life out of me.
