    I'm going through a separation

    and it's so hard to not reach out. And yet I know it's for the best and that I need to let go of what I thought he was. I have children with this man and they are asking for him. Asking why he doesn't call or come see them. They are worried, I can see it. They realize he just...

    I feel like I'm missing the present moment I am

    in right now. I'm so busy preparing for the future, worrying about the future and thinking about it and yet I miss this present moment. I forget to appreciate what I have now, what a mess I made my life worrying about what's not yet coming.

    Once upon a Time , there used to be endless

    time , where time came and flew about , regardless of time. An eternity later, time still flies by, but unknown to me, or my existence. It flies on its own, before you could speak a word of caution. Time flies , so do I.

    More recently I've gotten worse with this,

    causing mental breakdowns and just general lack of ability to cope. I look at myself in the future, and I can't even see myself doing what I'm supposed to do to go on. And that's stupid. Everyone has to work, everyone has to do what they don't want to do, everyone needs to push...

    I have no idea what I'm doing anymore.

    I feel lost, confused and stuck. Everything around me seems like a huge disappointment and it's hard trying to stay positive. I just wish I could run away to another place and start all over again.

    Once lived a man, very complicated. Nothing that could be said about him felt 100 % sure. His intentions were known to him only or maybe even he didn't think it through. This man one day became a Boss, he employed an employee. The employee didn't have any where to go. He was a...
