    Lost In A World Of Feelings

    My mind struggles with all these contradicting feelings. I want to care, but I don't want to. I want to help, but I kind of want to make people hurt, too. I mean, if people turn their backs on others who need them most, shouldn't they suffer, too? But then, I turn around and tell...

    I Want To Be Heartless...

    I want to be heartless. I want to not care anymore. I want to feel nothing. I want to just escape from it all. I don't want to care anymore, because it just hurts too much to keep caring. Because you care about the wrong people, and they end up hurting you the WORST!

    It Hurts.

    I hate loving everyone. I hate caring. I hate that I open my soul to people...only to have them tear into it with no thought of my happiness...People say 'Just stop caring.' but it's not so easy. How do you even stop to care? Even when I'm fed up with...

    Would Be Easier

    Sometimes I think it would just be better not to give a **** anymore about anyone or anything. That way I wouldn't be upset, sad, depressed, angry or whatever if someone said they were going to call/text/come by or whatever and didn't. I don't like feeling negative emotions...
