    Like, Right Now

    At this moment I'm feeling a bit hopeless. I don't really like to hope anyway cause then I just get let down in the end. But even if I was one to hope, I'd still be hopeless right now. I've seen stuck in this crappy hole of a life for years. Occasionally having a good time...

    Will I Be This Way Forever?

     Tyler (the husband) and I had a very honest and difficult conversation the other night. It began as a light-hearted reference to something from the past, and became a long-winded complaint about his mother from me. Understandably, this upset him. We talked about several...

    Broken Heartedwant

     I guess...I've done it again. It's amazing how someone can be so beautiful and so broken and all you want to do it save them and you don't really know what to say. You don't know what to do. You're silent and...slowly it just slips away. God, I don't want to walk away but I...

    Stuck

      It is hard to try new things because I have so many times tried new things and even succeeded, and no one cared.  It seems like it's not worth it, it won't amount to anything anyway.

    Why Am I Hopeless?

    So I'm sitting here at school. I'm a senior, and I go to a military highschool, because I want to go into the military. Our last day until break is Friday, and then we have 9 days off. I got into college the other day. My parents care about me. I have no reason to be unhappy...

    Not This Time

    I want to reach out and fix the problems that ail you. I want so badly to take away your scars, your pain, but I cannot. I am only helpless, hopeless. I cannot save you, I cannot.

    Hopeless

    Hope is one of the greatest things in our lives. With hope all things are possible and the future looks bright! Without it life is just existence, meaningless, gloomy. You have no desire for living. You go along because you have to not living but just existing. The future looks...

    And It Hurts

     I can think of very few emotions that can have such a powerful impact on someone's life as hopelessness.  I know it does on mine.  It is like a black hole that sucks away all life. When I get hopeless, I stop caring. Usually it's accompanied by depression...

    I Destroy My Life

    Everytime something good happens in my life, I destroy it. I got accepted into Norwich two days ago, and yesterday and today my emotions are out of control. I've been flipping out, I cried once, and just feel overall depressed and hopeless. This is the story of my life. Failure.

    Is there any places or part of this world

    that will make you feel like 'you belong here'? Or thats just for certain people or maybe it is just something that only exist in novels and movies. I keep thinking this might be true but now it seems hopeless to hope about it.
