    Not So Easy, Is It

    May Not Be Much, But It's A Start

    I've been so darn reclusive over the last few years because I've been afraid. I've been hurt in the past and have withdrawn from society for the most part. I've recently been trying to do nice little things that I normally wouldn't do, just because, and I'm not acting upon...

    Whether They've Been There As Support Or To Make My Life A Living Hell

    I've learned a lot. I've learned that everything does happen for a reason. I've learned that everyone I've met has helped me to grow and learn in some way, whether they've been there as support or to make my life a living hell, it still helped me learn. I've learned to just...

    I'm Losing Interest In My Biggest Passion. Music :(

    I'm afraid I want to fill the void with something that will take up as much time, and something as meaningful as playing music used to mean. It's kinda heartbreaking knowing that I don't play much music anymore. I feel so hollow and am losing enthusiasm for something that used to...

    Played For A While, Lost It, Now It'S Slowly Coming Back
