    I feel so lost. Job applications are not

    getting any responses. While I have my dream, my friends keep recommend me to ask for jobs I don't like. It really makes me struggle if I'm a capable person. Closing down a business is probably one of the worst phrase at work. I always try to lift my energy up as much as I can...

    I don't know if anyone feels this way too

    but does anybody feel as if they physically can't talk to people no matter how hard they try. I often find myself craving some sort of social attention for I am Lonley and somebody asking as simply to borrow a pencil can be the highlight of my day.

It was like broken glass all along the floor. 
But it was beautiful and he looked at me and all he could see was pain.
