    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...

    Did I make a mistake? Here I am, still young but still haven't a clue on what to do with my life. Suicide always seems like a pleasant option but since I'm an only child and can't do that to my mother. Twenty years old, still living with my mom, working a job that pays...

    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...

    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 always suffer from socializing with people at

    school. During lunch break, I always act like I'm asleep and when someone talks to me and asks me why I'm like this.. no energy etc. I always tell them that I slept late even though I didn't and now it's killing me thinking that I did something so wrong about decisions in life...

    I am in trouble. My best friend

    and I went out a while ago. it didn't work out, partially because I have some intolerable qualities that i wasn't fixing fast enough, it was long distance, and she has a rather controlling personality. We are still friends but she says she'd be furious if I went out with anyone...

    For some people when they are brokenhearted

    or really broken inside or out, they tend to fill emotional pain and physical pain. I am feeling it since November 2, 2012 Friday. It's been going on and off. Sometimes you can't bring that person back even if they are still alive, you have to set them free and that's what I did...
