    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...

    Read This You'll Relate ; I Promise !

    Feb.9th I know by now I do take things personally. Honestly way more than I ever expected to, but here’s the thing that I think is the center of what I am truly about. I don’t want to show weakness or sadness. Yes I tend to hold so much negativity within me under the name...

    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.

    Stuck, But Hopeful

    There seems to be something missing out of my character that leaves me floundering. A lot of the dreams that seemed so possible once seemed to have bypassed me forever. I always wanted to work in a music related field, but time, confidence and being badgered into being...

    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...

    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...

      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.

    So Naive.

    I am a 20 year old with a new family. It consists of my boyfriend, son, and myself. My son is halfway to being 8 months old and I love him so much. On the other hand I never planned my life to end up this way. As a child I thought I'd go to school and have a group of good friends...

    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.

    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.
