    Sad But True...

    Yeah, I usually put on a brave front and seem more composed than I usually am. I've never been described as bubbly or chipper, but usually just subdued and sober. However, even then, most people don't really realize how sad I can sometimes get inside, but not wanting to let on...

    I smile I laugh I crack jokes I bottle it all

    up I don't want to bother anyone with my problems, because then I'd trust them, and then I'd get hurt. No one notices anyways and maybe its for the best. But until then I'll just smile and try to not let it all bother me so much.

    I feel very alone and like no one will accept me

    for who I truly am. I'm sad that the man I love cannot be faithful. I am sad that I am getting older by the second and even though I'm only 26, it feels like my life has passed my by. My sadness and depression hold me down and I often feel unbearably tired. It's all I can do to...

    Caused By Loneliness And Fears Of Being Behind In Life.....

    I am sad, irritated and hurt almost constantly now. The only time I am not is when I am in the creche at work. I try to hide it as I don't want to irritate people but it is always there. I am not the person that I was, I have become more cynical, life has made me that way. I...

    The Tin Woman

    I was born sad, really!  If you saw my toddler picture, you'd want to cry!  Introversion is my enemy and keeps me isolated, lonely and sad.  And I firmly believe that God forgot to give me a heart too!  It's soooo hard for me to love--myself and others.Debbie

    It's A Deeper Sadness

    Oh sure, I smile at people I see and interact with in my everyday life and I come here and try to inspire, but I am not a robot either, behind these icy blues is a sea of turmoil and sadness some days. I try to set the tone of my EP aura to be a consistent and gentle one, free...

    that I'm as sad as I am. I can't help it. I think after years and years of having no one caring about me has made me permanently sad. I wake up in the morning wondering whats the ******* point? Why even get out of bed? The things that used to make me happy no longer do. I feel as...

    In The Dark

    There are few people in my life that know how truly deep the sadness resides within me. Four people to be exact...my parents, my sister, and Him. I hide it well. Hmm, my supervisor even said to me that, at work, I look like I'm handling it all really well. (she knows all that...

    Horribly Sad..

    Nobody understands how sad and lonely I can be sometimes. I just have to fake a smile every time someone talks to me and hope they don't notice. They never do anyway... Or they do and just don't bother questioning.
