    I broke up with him in the end.

    It was kind of a happy break up and we said there's still a chance that we could back together and we love each other etc. but I'm empty and keep thinking what's the point in being alive when you feel dead on the inside? I know this sounds melodramatic, but this has been...

    There is a void somewhere in my being

    and I do not know how to fill it, or what to fill it with. I have everything and more to make someone happy, but I still struggle. I feel that I am taking for granted all the good things in my life because I'm not happy with what I have. The worst part is I have no idea what I...

    I Held On For So Long And Now I Feel Empty

    Feeling very empty and lost today.

    I didn't get enough sleep last night so I'm tired and irritable. When I'm moody like this I would typically isolate myself but I have school today. I guess I'll just go through the motions and try not to look at the clock. This empty feeling comes and goes. It's this feeling of...

    I don't feel empty all the time, but enough to make me doubt. I know why it is, and what it comes from. Yet it doesn't change the feeling when it's there. It feels like the lack of everything that is important, and stays only the shallow things. It's like all what is essential...
