I Feel Completely Empty Inside

    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 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.

    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.

    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...

    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...
