    Giving Up

    My God, up above, I've brought shame not only myself but you too. I ask you for forgiveness but I don't even deserve it. All I can do is to apologize. But will you turn your back on me? I'm so sorry.

    I mean I really do, I hate to admit that I battle with negative emotions, stress and fatigue. It all comes from my depression, my eleven year long battle with depression. It's hard it really is, something I feel like no one understands, I put on a happy face and tread through the...

    Everyone ditched me last night I cried an I'm

    not a crying kind of person. No one gets why I'm sick of being alone why I'm sick of never having anyone there for me why I'm jealous of couples who get to cuddle kiss see each other and etc. Isn't it obvious? I long for something like that, someone like that.

    Look Within

    I am mad with myself, God, people, and life. I've tried so hard to get it right and for years I've been wrong. I just don't know what else to do, or where to go. I've talked with my mom, father, brother, and sister. I've tried my best friend, close friend, and boy friend. I even...
