    It's one of my those days

    where I should be crying and getting angry but surprisingly enough, I feel really empty. I don't feel like yelling, screaming or weeping over the fact that I lost another person in my life. I think it is because I have finally accepted the fact that it is how it is going to be...

    This Saturday I didn't want to get out of bed.

    I woke up early and couldn't go back to sleep. I felt really empty and sad. I told myself that these are my gray days. These days I feel no motivation, I feel alone, worthless... I didn't do my school projects, and I have many responsibilities, but I didn't feel it was worth my...

    I can't say if it's a sad feeling

    or not, because honestly I'm beyond used to feeling depressed. It's exactly what the word above reads: "Empty" It's as if there's nothing there, nothing inside, just a ton of blank space and loud echoes. It's a feeling that hasn't gone away since the age of twelve. It's not as...

    and now I just feel empty all the time. I've locked myself and just haven't talked to my roommate or seen any of my friends, I hardly eat. I just want everything to stop, the person I was seeing hasn't talked to me since I told him I was pregnant. I feel alone.

    Meaninglessness, Emptiness

    Emptiness, it's like a base state. When I am truly alone and have no reason to be anything to anyone, all of the layers of disguise, emotion ... they just fall away, and I find that I am really ... nothing. Without any outside exertion, I fall into a state of inertia. Social...

    I don't know why but it makes me feel empty. Like I have something more to me, but I don't know what it is. It feels nearly inhuman. Maybe it's because I crave for that something more than what I am. I am not satisfied with just being average. I need more out of life than what...

    It's a "negative neutral" feeling.

    "Negative neutral" doesn't make sense, but it's the most fitting description I could think of at the moment. Feeling empty makes me sad that I just cry about it.
