    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Quarterly. But sleep

    and food help. Those give mind clarity. To hear and recognize true pals. Or think of them to cope with jerks.

    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.

    Breathless

    It's amazing. I want to hate him so bad because it's so much easier than loving him...I want to hate the smile that takes my breath away and I want to hate that feeling in the pit of my stomach...the butterflies. I wish my heart wouldn't race everytime I see his picture...

    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...

    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

      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.
