    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...

    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 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...

    There is so much that is going on right now in my life. Living in my home with my grandparents and brother is right back to how it was before...pure hell. Grandma is always yelling at me for stupid crap. I can NEVER be good enough for her. She's always mad at me for god knows...

    I Don't Feel Like I Matter To Anyone

    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...

    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...

    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...
