    I Have Come To Realise That I Am…

    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'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.

    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...
