    It's quarter past three in the morning.

    . I drifted off to sleep briefly at around 11-11:30 but woke up soon after with night terrors and flashbacks. I had this nightmare that he was out of prison and coming to find me again. Then she came back from the dead and came too. They were both here with their hands all over...

    the Thing That Scares Me Most

    In a word: Failure I worry all the time that somehow I am going to screw up everything I'm doing at the moment. I worry about bills, house payments most of all. I earn just about enough to just get me by and my major problem is I'm terrible with handling money. One of the ways...

    So I just came home from Halloween horror nights

    and I'm thoroughly freaked out. I absolutely love horror movies, but for some reason one of the houses I went too left a horrible impression on me. I can't even fall asleep because I'm so scared.

    To Be Honest I Am Scared.

    I don't think about it much as I employ mindfulness in my daily life, staying in the NOW, so my thoughts don't wander. It helps. But, when I lie in bed at night, in the dark, in the silence, my mind goes to the future. I try to feel how it will be when I leave the home I love...

    I am scared because I can foresee the challenges

    and difficulties ahead. I know I need to be strong but after all the challenges and difficulties that I have been through growing up, here I am again and it's a very familiar feeling to me. I did everything and I have worked so hard so I won't feel this "familiar feeling" again...

    Oblivion I always see

    and hear the word called Oblivion, i thought it is beautiful, an art but i saw the true meaning of this word; i never thought it would scare me. Oblivion is a word about an act of forgetting something, some place or someone. As a child and up until now, i've always craved the...

    When someone scares me I shake

    When I was a child people would tell me

    that one day I would be a heart breaker. I didn't really understand what it meant but it didn't sound appealing to me. I was confused as to why they had huge smiles on their face while exclaiming this. To me it seemed like a horrible concept, breaking peoples hearts. Whatever it...
