    I Am Drifting

    Fear is what holds us back from being happy. I fear being alone. It is holding me back from going to college. I know that I need to leave this town. There is nothing for me here. But I am scared that if I leave I will not be able to meet anyone and make new friends. I am so...

    I Am Physically Alone.

    I have lots of great people here on EP.  So, I am not alone as far as not having anyone to talk to, but I am alone in the physical sense.  I have spoken about two sentences aloud today.  No one has touched me in days.

    I'm ambitious, and I'm afraid that others, especially those close to me, will invalidate my potential successes with their own successes.

    Sometimes I like the peace and freedom of being alone and unbothered but then other times I'm a prisoner of my own hell with no one to vent to but my notebook.
