    Nothing will ever go right.

    Ughhhh! I feel like I need to run away more as an adult than I ever did as a kid. I will never meet someone who understands it. I live in a vicious circle of depression. I try to do something to improve my circumstances, then something will happen, and I get dragged right back...

    I hate feeling stuck

    when I don't have to. When I have the choice to change that and just make it all better. I like being free and on my own.

    Im So Lost Right Now And Feel So Stuck

    You know what, it takes everyone around me telling me that I'm doing good or I'm doing better and that I've come along way, just for me to be able to think that. But overall I just feel like I'm in a hole with no way out. And being happy seemed to just turn into....a dream...

    Nothing seems important anymore.

    It feels like I'm becoming numb. Maybe I'm just tired.. Tired of struggling.. Tired of frustration.. Tired of existing in a world where on the daily I feel inferior. No, it's not a lack of self-confidence on the interior. It's a lack of resources which lead to a lack of...

    Ik that I'm to young to worry bout this stuff

    but I do. I always feel that there is never someone really there for me. Except for my cousin who lives miles away. Yes I have friends and family but I always feel like they over look who I really am. I just want to feel wanted and to be in a place where I belong.

    I just want to go away

    and have some time to myself. I need to think things out. I need to get away, and I want to say what I feel, but I feel like they're not going to listen. I feel like crying over it, but tears won't do anything. I just want to get away from it all.
