    A senior who's a really close friend of mine

    confessed just over a week ago. To be honest I also have some (read: huge) feelings for him but at the same time, all my instincts screamed "DANGER!!" and that I should remain single. First time, so I guess it counts as an experience hahaha ????

    You see, in life it's not pain

    I feel stuck.  I am torn between happiness and sadness.  I am torn between wanting to be alone, and loneliness.  I am torn between the good and the bad.  I am often either one or the other, but rarely am I stuck between both.  I'm not always sure how I get here.  Perhaps it...

    I found out the guy who I thought was mutually

    attracted to me actually isn't... Friendzoned again... I can't believe this is happening again. I've wasted so much time and energy on this man. He's amazing, even still, but I just wish all this did not happen. I don't know what to do. I really love him.

    now dating one of my kind of distant friends. We only dated for one day, but we broke up because he "wasn't ready for a relationship". So from then on, we flirted a bunch and stuff until yesterday when I found out he had a girlfriend. I don't know what happened exactly, but as...

    I was young and hopeless once.

    I hated my life in its entirety. I cut, starved, binged, drank, and took prescription drugs to take the edge off. I even attempted to end my life three times, failed, making me more worthless. It was a consuming dark monster that I grew to suppress. I am torn between wanting...

    God Vs. School

    I have church duties, and I have school duties. I need to focus more on my school work so I can graduate high school, but that means I have to neglect my church duties. I barely have enough time to read the Bible as it is, I just feel that I'm not balancing my time well. It sucks...
