    I Am Scared.. For My Result.

    My 10th grade results come out on 17th May. I am scared. I know I didn't do well. I'm an average. I've been an average. I don't really fail, but I don't do well either. And I hate being this average. I don't find anyone like me. It's either topper, or failure. My whole life...

    I want to donate my kidney to someone

    15 days. I'm terrified.

    How am I supposed to get through it? Facing him again. And if he doesn't get put away?? That would be terrible. I want justice, not just a triggering experience for flashbacks.

    Trusting someone with your heart

    that you've never met is probably one of the scariest things.

    I don't really know why.

    All I know is that I have this feeling of fear with no legit reason. It dwells in my gut and chest. How do I stop being afraid, if I don't know WHY I am afraid?

    I'm not ready to tell my friends about my

    self-harm and I might go swimming tomorrow. I can't hide my cuts when I'm swimming. I suggested going to a movie instead. I'm afraid our plans to go to the movies won't happen and we end up going in the pool.

    I live in constant fear every day.

    I have two really big fears, and tons of anxieties. I get stressed or anxiety a lot, and I get so scared that I make myself cry or deal with said fear because my mind makes it happen. I'm tired of it, but there's no relief.

    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...
