    I hate the feeling of being lonely in your own

    home even when you have a family that lives with you. Just feel like I don't connect to them. Such an odd feeling

    Feels like I really need some time alone.

    I need to find peace within myself. It's just so depressing that I think Im getting sader and sader each day. Earlier today during the mass, the priest told that.. "Take time to be in silence, because in silence, you usually hear what God is telling to you."
