    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...

    Feeling Like I Am Home Again...

    After the last two years of my life... now I feel like I 'm home again. Even though I've been in a physical way, a part of me was still struggling to feel that way, some parts of me are still missing, hope soon they can find their way to me. A very short engagement...

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

    I'm writing this to vent. Knowing that people are reading this is therapeutic. I think that's why a lot of us are here. I started playing guitar in high school. Mainly aggressive noise with a lot of distortion. "Noise" being the key word, as I was horrible. Mostly self taught...

    My Life Has Become Damaged

    I used to have tons of friends, relationships, and fun. Now, I'm stuck living in my uncle's living room. I don't know what the hell happened. Seems like everyone is fake. No one knows you when you're down. There is a lot more that I should add here, but I won't because I'm tired...

    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...

    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 I've been hurt in the past and have withdrawn from society for the most part.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...
