    Conflicted-what would be the best decision

    I'm feeling so conflicted lately.

    Part of me loves the fact that I can blend in and am totally unseen. I'm pretty much invisible. The other part of me is longing for someone to notice and love me. I think these two things are in direct contrast with each other, yet I can't decide which one I want. I know that...

    I'm pretty sure I know how you feel.

    But I can't decide whether that's making me move on, or pushing me to try even harder.

    Sometimes I get lost in life.

    I have no idea what I am doing or why. Maybe I do, but repetitive failures blur my mind. Then I question myself. Then I forget. While I am stuck here waist deep in confusion, loneliness creeps in.

    Am I Already Too Deep?

    What if all of this is a sick joke to him? It won't be the first time it's happened. If it is, I shouldn't be surprised. And yet, I find myself falling deeper and deeper. I caution myself of the insane abyss just a step away from where I'm standing, and at times I ignore it, but...
