    I need to vent about an old event

    and get it off my chest before I sleep. I put in so much effort. I was promised so much yet at the end I got nothing near what I'd hoped. In fact, I was left WORSE OFF than when I'd started. And what did everyone do? The equivalent of shaking the dust off their hands, saying "it...

    Life Keeps Flying By

    but I stand still. I don't feel this as much as I used to, but for a long time it seemed that the world kept going by around me and no one would reach out and bring me along. My parents would pick me up from school and drop me off where I needed to be but I didn't seem to exist...

    Right Now I Do

    I hate how I'm always doing things to get people's attention and then when I don't the attention I crave, I just shut down and become my normal depressed self. I wish I had more self-confidence, but we all know that's not going to happen.

    It's that first twinge- deep in the pit of my stomach. It's hard to pinpoint but I know it's there. I'm often not even sure what triggers it. If I'm in a quiet place I normally can tell- hearing about a dear friend who has had some big success somewhere and is moving leaps and...

    Oh, Well...

    More often than not I've been forgotten, even by those who claim to care about me: friends and family. Although being forgotten is painful, I'm somewhat grateful I'm so easily forgotten because it means more quiet time, and time to myself in general.
