    Am Trying To Make It To Whole..

    You are born whole. Small, but whole. Born into this world. Born dependent on your parents. Born knowing nothing at all about anything around you. Born completely clueless about just what a screwed up place this world is.It's kind of sad when you think about it. The...

    You made me feel special.

    I believed everything you said because no one has ever made me feel that way before. You said you liked me, how could I not like you? everything was going great but everything just stopped. You stopped talking to me and I tried to talk to you. I just want to give up on you but I...

    I feel that I am so broken,

    that no one could ever love me. Or even like me for that matter.

    All I want right know is to fall asleep in a

    woman's lap. I need her to understand me for who I am and show me that she love's me for who I am also. I don't think I'm asking to much. I just want to heal. If not for me for my children.

    Yesterday as I was at work I watched water

    from the ship and wanted to jump but I thought of her and unfortunately she doesn't care so now when I go back to work I'm going to jump. She was my only strength I had.

    I feel broken in some manner

    or form. It just feels like something isn't working right. I can think of a fair few reasons why that might be, but I don't know what I can do. I don't feel like I'm experiencing life at all, but like I'm just walking through a dream or something. Everything feels irrelevant...

    I feel so broken in different ways.

    I just feel so intensely emotional but I feel so empty and strangely numb. I don't know what to do. I have no motivation and I feel as if no one bothers to care. I'm losing feeling for people and things but I want to be able to get out and live in such light. I really need a...

    I attract toxic women

    that make my life a living hell. I'm always left picking up the pieces and every time it feels like a piece is lost. I'm almost out of pieces.

    I'm almost at the lowest of lows right now.

    It's not hard to explain so I'll do so right here. Really, I feel like giving up. I feel like looking up to my Lord above and crying out, "God, take my soul back, I don't want it anymore,". This sh*t has been too tough. Just way too tough. It's like when I was born, a video game...

    You tell yourself not to cry

    but the tears flow anyways. You know you're a strong person but you don't know why this person can break down your walls. The little things that they say can hurt. The little things that they do can hurt, but you love them anyways. Some moments are happy and others are not...
