    I Am Doubting Myself Right Now

    One of my lifelong problems would be this, doubting myself. I know how great believing in yourself can be. It makes you happy knowing that no one can stops you and those obstacles you can easily overcome. It is like everything is 'no problem' and keep on walking forward though...

    Creeping...

    Doubt crawls in to my mind. It makes a bed in the crevices.... It waits. It creeps out as time passes. The longer the space of time the more it stretches from its warm bed... The more it seeps across all of the trustful areas and starts to chip away at them. It starts to play...

    Something That I'm Not

    Keeping so many thoughts in my head hurts too much. I wish I had someone to spill it all too. Someone who didn't care, but did enough to be there. But I dont. I dont have anyone anymore. Did I ever? You love me? I want to believe that's true. But your actions tell me you don't...

    What If...?

    Doubts are like mosquitoes. They're horrible, soul-sucking creatures that drain happiness and comfort. They attack so stealthily that you don't notice until afterwards that you've been bitten. The mark is comparative to the wound it leaves. It swells up and nags at you until you...

    I Don't Feel Like I Matter To Anyone

    I doubt myself all the time. I know I am not as smart as my sister nor will I ever be able to work like my sister does. I think I compare myself to her because it has been that way since the day I was born. I wonder who would miss me if I died tommorrow.  This is the first place...

    Because I Am So Awfully Forgetful.

    I cannot trust my memory, even tough I feel sure of the truth. The next moment I would doubt what I believe to be true. There have been times that I have been right and others wrong. However most of the time it is the other way round. This is particular annoying when arguing...

    I Am Never 100% Sure of Myself

    Yeah sure, I'll have confidence in myself most of the time but I don't know. I think I'm scared of the possibility that I might be wrong even though I'm wrong almost half the time. If someone asks me, "Whats 8+6?" I'll take a moment before answering. I'll say, "14...

    I Doubt I'm Enough

    I am never quite sure where I belong or where I fit.  It is very apparent to me that each person is unique in their own way, and to find that place where you perfectly fit is seemingly a difficult task.  Who's heart is shaped exactly like mine, where I will fit perfectly?  I'm...
