    Everything is falling apart.

    When you think of going home dont you think of a calm welcoming place? I wish for that. I want to feel that. The warmth. The security. I would look forward to time after school for cleaning and tidying the house to make it feel like home. For years I've been trying to make...

    The more lengthy, detailed

    and personal your post gets, the less likely people are to respond to it or generally interact with it. Don't know why that happens. Maybe I'm too much of a negative person and people get tired about it. Maybe I simply have bad luck, in which case I wouldn't understand why that...
