    It's been 2 weeks and I still hurt,

    I miss him.. I was just watching videos of long distance couples who met for the first time.. I was supposed to have one, and I can't stop thinking about all our time together. I want to be done with all this pain, I don't want to cry over him anymore. I want to be happy again...

    This has felt like the longest couple weeks.

    In the last 2 weeks, I lost 2 great friends and my mother passed away. The loneliness feels overwhelming. I grieve for the lose of my friends as much as anyone else. Because they took a part of me when they went. Now the memorial service for mom tomorrow. Picking music for the...

    It seems the only time people want to include

    me in anything is when they need something from me, whenever I can't be of use to anyone it seems no one wants me around. I don't think I've ever felt this used and alone in my life

    I'm done allowing the same person to hurt me.

    I may still cry over you, think about you, miss you but I will move on in life and find someone that appreciates me for what I do and give.

    I don't know why I thought random strangers

    would care... People who tell me they love me don't give a ****... Why bother reaching out when no one is even there. My heart is broken, my sprit is dead, I can't even wish myself away.

    For the past several months I have been hurting

    more and more. My close friends have been tearing me down. It is not their intent to hurt me, but they do not exactly help. Moreover, there are friends I would like to see, that seem to brighten the day. They never have time for me. I feel like a burden on others. One...

    I guess now I understand

    why I had a fear of love. Deep down in my heart, I always knew that I would end up loving too much and being hurt too deep.

    Sometimes the pain outweighs my desire to live.

    The depression is so strong. I think "Why did God even make me?" I'll cry for hours in sheer despair. I feel it in the core of my being like it's something alive that wants me dead.

    I just need a little room to break.

    A place where I can cry all I want without people asking why and feeling sorry for me. A place where I can break stuff when I'm mad, angry and hurt.

    I can't find another job,

    and I hate the job I have currently. I'm grateful I have a job, but it's not my cup of tea. I'm also going through heartbreak, and my ex doesn't care about how he treated me. I'm talking to another guy I really like, and, as stupid as I feel to admit it, I'm catching feelings...

    Sometimes, being hurt very badly is life's way

    of telling us that we are better off without that which caused the pain.

    When the only lesson you've learned

    consistently in life from the people who "love" you is that there will never be time for you because their needs, desires, and beliefs will always come first, and what you want more than anything is to be over it; but it's all you can think about night and day, this feeling of...
