    I know that there are hundreds,

    if not, thousands like me who don't know what exactly they want or are looking for in life. Unfortunately, I am one of them. Yesterday, I met up with my friend and she and I got into talking about our future (something which I dread to talk about tbh). I normally don't get...

    He's white, I'm black. Okay. We've been talking, texting, exchanging pictures and all that good stuff over a month now. I'm 21 aaand he's 38. I don't know if that matters but....we both agree that there's a connection there. So much in common and a lot of values too. I was...

    I'm in a constant battle with 2 opposing.

    .. beliefs, I guess (not a religious thing, I'm an atheist), when only one can be reality. I'm too scared to fully act on either of them, incase I choose wrong, as there would be very serious consequences. There's probably nothing I can do anyway....

    What do you do when your close family member is

    in so much pain? Physically, mentally and emotionally? She told me a few years ago that she's only staying around for a few more years. This is her last year. In August she is going to stop taking her meds and basically die. It's becoming more and more real and I can't look at...

    I feel conflicted about everything today.

    For any normal person, today would have been utterly relaxing. practically doing nothing, no errands to run, not scheduled for any job, no one but yourself home. Sounds like a peaceful heaven right? but I'm sad and lonely. I can't shake this feeling and it grows deeper now...

    I honestly need advice from people I don't know.

    I am an introverted person, I don't keep much company. However I do keep a few close friends. One of friends (let's call him Sean) is supposedly best friends with my other friends (Hanna). Hanna had talked to me a while ago to say that she wasn't really friends with Sean anymore...

    I don't know what's real anymore.

    I don't know what I feel and if what I think I do feel is real. I don't know who I am anymore. And I don't remember who I was. I feel so lost.
