    Lately I feel as if I'm loosing my emotions.

    ..it's been slow but I notice it's happening...I just don't care about anything or anyone that much anymore and I've started to do some cold emotionless things that surprise me each time it happens...When this started I remember thinking that I was still stuck in the same...

    i think the reason I like you

    so much is because you've been there the past nine months. you're the only stable guy in my life. it's like dr. jekel and mr. hyde with you, I never know who i'm going to get. sometimes you make me so ******* happy and I try to tell myself that you're not that person all the...

    When people ask how I'm doing,

    the genuine response I want to give is "I don't know." I'm considered successful to most people and am grateful for all I have, but I can't shake this emptiness. I don't want to be known as an "old soul." I crave for meaningful connections to people who are similar minded...

    I think my girlfriend likes to seduce her dad.

    He compliments her allot. She wears no bra when we are going to be around him and really short skirts or shorts with no panties on. One day I even caught him staring at her when she bent over (her *** was all out). And in the kitchen I caught him rub his hand across the lower...

    Makes You Think....

    The phrase, "I feel as if I don't know how to feel" makes me think of the song, "I feel bad". (Rascal Flatts.) The only reason it makes me think of that song, is that there is a line in it that goes like this, "I feel bad that I don't...

    I'm feeling numb. I'm going through life atm

    without feeling a thing towards my husband (cheated on me) It's as if I'm going through the daily motions until we are able to separate. I do not feel anything towards him. Is anyone in the same place? Or has been??? Does this mean my marriage is really over?

    It's inevitable... There comes a point in your

    life when you painfully realize who matters, who never did, who won’t anymore, and who always will. And in the end you learn who is FAKE who is just USING you, who is TRUE, and who would risk it all for you.

    I think logically, and the only real emotions i

    have are frustration and compassion. I get really frustrated when people are stupid, but I also worry about people when they're sad and I value the humblest people the most. Despite this simple outlook, sometimes i just don't feel at all. I can be a machine sometimes, spewing...
