I Don't Know What to Do

    I really don't know who I am anymore.

    Or what I want. I had the perfect life 7 months ago nothing could've been better. Now I hate everything and can't stand anything about my life. I feel like a shell of my former self and can't really find it in myself to strive for anything better. I just don't see a point...

    So my ex is talking to me again.

    He's talking about being friends with benefits. I'm thinking this will just hurt me even more. But at the same time I'm thinking, what if he still loves me and this is his way of still being able to be with me. Maybe he'll realize how much he still loves me and he'll want to be...

    My dad keeps telling me I'm living my life
