    Alone In This World

    I hate these times. The times when I have nothing to do, because when that happens, I start thinking about myself. I hate thinking about myself, both in the social sense and the moral sense. You see, it is when I am in exactly this sort of position and this sort of mood, that I...

    Almost Given Up On Myself, Life And People...

    I have been let down so many times by people, given my heart to them only to have it crushed, cared for them only to be used. I have learnt that my personality does not work in the real world. People don't seem to love or respect kind, caring and thoughtful people. I have learnt...

    I don't know. The picture speaks

    for itself. It just brought on those feelings of emptiness, and emphasized all of the things that make it so meaningless. I feel nothing.

    Sometimes I forget about the emptiness.

    But in those few moments at dawn between asleep and awake- I feel this horrible aching empty feeling.

    I Have Come To Realise That I Am…

    I have come to realise that I am… Well, I know what I am, but it is difficult to put into words. The feeling stems from an entirely empty feeling inside. I feel devoid of all feeling, which I know is a contradictory proposition but as I said, it is difficult to put...

    I've felt empty for a long time.

    I've gotten to the point where I don't care about life anymore. I don't care if I live or die. I just try to help anyone when and where I can so they hopefully wont have to live with this kind of pain.

    Why Can't I Shake This Feeling

    I was recently in a whirlwind of a relationship Nov. 2009. It ended as fast as it started. I met him through mutual friends in October, but didn't give him the time of day until November. Yeah of course we texted back in forth when we first met,  but we didn't actually go...
