    I have friends, but not "hang out with" friends,

    the only person I really talk to at school is my boyfriend. I feel like I don't matter, I want someone to talk to and laugh with about random ****, I want a friend who has common interests and is on the same level with me

    It's Actually A Good Feeling

    I remember being asked to write about reactive listening and translation because I was told I have a "gift" by someone special in my life to read and understand people. I was at the time listening to Wayne Dyer atleast once a week and this is what I ended up writing. So...

    What I would do, what I would give not to

    cuddle with just any random person but with that one special person. Unfortunately, I've come to understand that person doesn't exist for me. I've been so lonely that I've thought about even dating a guy. Have you ever felt that lonely? That something you know you don't like you...

    When I try to tell my mother about how I feel,

    she always tries to say that she feels the same way, and how I'm perfectly okay. But I'm not.

    Show Me That You Care...

    What do you do when something you feel you cannot live without is not working properly? You fix it. If you do something wrong, you spend hours trying to figure out how to either get it back to normal or make it better. You are a perfectionist, or so you say. Sadly for me, this...

    Why Do I Exist

    I have a constant feeling of insignificance of

    my actions. I chose to study art out of passion, yet after years of studies I am ridden with doubts of it being just an ego game, artsy joke making with no further meaning. It doesn't change anything in the existence nor it does help anyone. Everything I do feels insignificant...

    I'm A Nobody

     Every time I look up old friends, it seems they all have went on to do amazing things while I haven't really gone far at all.  I feel left behind and insignificant.
