    I have a really drastic,

    life changing choice to make, and I have to make it soon. For the past two years, I finally reached a point in my life where I was capable enough to finally join the general world and the world of employment. After five years of isolation and being controlled by fears and...

    Kinda wish I could just end it all.

    I'm sick of myself. I keep telling myself I'll go nowhere in life. So what's the point of delaying my exit when I can just do it now? End it all. Get it over and done with. But as much as I keep thinking that I have nothing to live for, I know that I have everything to live for...

    I lost my grandma November 4th her funeral is

    on Tuesday. I am speaking at her funeral and usually I can sit and write a story or a poem with no problem but for the life of me I can't say how I felt about the woman that raised me. How ****** up is that. I don't know where to begin I guess. Why cant this be easier?

    I'm a bisexual guy. I'm having strong feelings

    for one of my good friends all of a sudden. His breath, his smell, his looks, his touch, everything about him excites me. He flirts with me all the time but says he's straight. It's killing me slowly.

    Why?

    I always know how to ruin conversations with girls, I can never talk to girls. It always makes me look like a *****. All I am is different. That doesn't mean I don't treat girls right.

    I hate college so much.

    I'm probably going to fail all of my classes and won't be able to return next semester. I'm not complaining. But my parents are going to be disappointed. And on top of that, I don't know what to do with my life. All I know, is that I'm an empty shell of a person. I don't know...

    I really like this guy at my co-op (a schooling

    option for homeschoolers) but I'm afraid he won't like me when he finds out things about me. I don't know if he could handle knowing that I suffer from depression, anxiety, and trying to recover from self harm and an eating disorder.

    So I can either go back to a guy

    who hurt me fairly badly that I still really care about or go out with a guy I barely know who I don't have strong feelings for. My life sucks. Relationships are hard.
