    Memories

    Have you ever remembered something? Seen it in your head? Every time i try to remember something i see myself from a different angle. Like when i was walking down the stairs after a shower, i remember my hair was wet and there was a spot across the back of my shirt because of it...

    My Life...

    Its rather difficult for me to feel 'connected' with the rest of the world, with my life the way it is right now... I live in the middle of nowhere, we haven't got much money for gas at this very moment. Right now, the only way I have to contact the outside world, is to use the...

    Though The Sun Is Shining, There Is No Light.

    All the time.For the last six months I've struggled to care about people. I just really don't care anymore. I should be bothered by this; but I'm not, all I 'feel' is numbness. I'm not sure what's wrong with me. I used to care about people a great deal but I'm not interested in...

    An Alien Soul In A Human Body

    I enjoy solitude and like to observe the live of people. Diversity and unpredictability of life and how people react to what they experience fascinate me. I observe and learn. That makes me not act my age at times. As far as I can remember, I have had these feelings every now...

    Farewell Twinkies

    When you think about how unions were born, in the sweltering unregulated sweatshops in the early twentieth century, its rather disgusting where they are going now. Other humans pay them money out of their checks to protect their rights, this should be a simple and generous task...

    Not of This World

    I am not of this world. Sometimes I feel it so much more profoundly than others, though. I feel so out of place, so misunderstood! I do not understand humanity at all sometimes. I am a pretty smart person... but I just don't get it. it's like there...

    And It Scares Me

    There are times when I feel like I am a stray puzzle piece that wandered into a snow globe full of "whole" people. I feel like no one touches me or really even sees me. And that I can't touch them, even if they are reaching for me. It's scary and sad to think of what my life will...

    Is This "normal"?

    Often, I feel so distant from my own life and the people in it. I don't really get excited about much of anything. I don't really have a desire to make new friends and don't have many people in my life that I truly consider to be my friend. I know that I have people in my life...

    Spaced Out

    My most used defense when i get overwhelmed is to leave my body.  This is a  very alienating experience.  I know i'll always come back,  but it takes awhile sometimes.  Just got through a major episode because I had to get my apartment renovated.  Anytime a move stuff...

    From My Window

    I don't know that the thought that I am losing my child is ever not in my head.  I have become a master at staying busy, keeping my mind busy in the belief that I can drown out this thought but it's always there.  My mind is only in the moment when I am with her, sitting beside...

    I Feel I Am Not Made For This World

    I am perplexed to think how somebody at a very tender age could see no light at the end of the road..no vision for future...no motivation for life except that I feel like running away from this world where people are mean and cruel. I don't deny that there are no good people...

    Sometimes a Lot

    For the longest time I felt that I was supposed to be on this world.  I never found anyone that I could find a foundation to keep me alive.  I felt so dead at times.

    I Dont Care

    At work, I get done what needs to get done, and I'm careful about it, and I do it well. At home, I've been keeping the house as neat as I possibly can (which is not exactly neat) and have even experimented with new dinners. All of this freaks me out, but the part that freaks...

    Can Be Positive

    If I were a tree among trees, a cat among animals, this life would have a meaning, or rather this problem would not arise, for I should belong to this world. I should be this world to which I am now opposed by my whole consciousness and my whole insistence upon familiarity. This...

    Stuck In A Bubble

    That's how I feel- absent, bitter, detached. It's like the world and I are in two different bubbles. I'm looking through the walls of my bubble at the world, which doesn't even know I exist. We go our separate ways, walking down two separate, but parallel paths. I see the world...

    Was It the Psych Meds

    I spent my early adolescence in and out of psych wards and for this reason I feel detached.  Even in high school I had a hard time opening up and didn't even go out until my junior year.  I just feel like this makes me somehow different and unacceptable and therefore...

    I Observe

    Ever since I was young I have felt like I was on the outside looking in, most of the time. I used to try and be a part of it all. Sometimes too hard. But never quite made it. I have a habit of "putting things in a box". Especially my emotions...figured they were mine...

    Only Me

    Sometimes I feel like I don't even belong here. I feel so...distant, like nothing in the world matters except me. Like the world doesn't even exist, that all that's there, is me.
