    I'm trying hard but I no longer believe in

    myself, I doubt I'm capable of anything, I don't think I have a future... I can't imagine a future, I'm tired of pretending I'm okay when I'm not... I totally hate my life and I hate the fact I'm a coward

    Lately I've been down.

    I don't want to be down anymore so I've changed my diet, started exercising and trying positive affirmations. It's hard but I have to do this for my sanity.

    I am so tired. Tired of caring about everything

    and nothing. Walking this line of doing the right thing but still being true to myself. Tired of holding the weight of the world and guilt when I let it go. I feel like I am walking this tightrope and it's exhausting.
