    I am longing for true freedom.

    I need to move out on my own. I want to have a lover (female). Loneliness sucks. I am thinking about my cousin to help me mask my loneliness. Urg...so frustrating. So hard to not settle when the opportunity of what you want at the moment is at a short reach.

    I'm coming to terms with the fact that I may die alone, and you know what? It isn't really all that bad. I don't need a significant other to be happy and in all honesty I feel like it would just hold me back. True freedom means either the single life or a girl who is literally...

    But, loneliness is inevitable.

    I learned that everyone that you see around you has a hole in their heart. It doesn't always matter who they appear to be, or how they seem, we all suffer from loneliness. We all fear we will be abandoned, or die alone, or never find someone. This obsession with sex in the media...
