    Who Cares?

    I volunteered to care for my mother-in-law who has dementia.  Poor thing cannot remember that she ate 5 minutes ago.  She is still full of feelings and needs though.  Needs which I cannot meet since they have to do with a memory she cannot catch hold of. I moved...

    Your Cared For

    Look, my best friend says that she isn't important and people wouldn't notice if she just disappeared. Well guess what, I would, she's my rock. By for some reason, it doesn't register in her mind that I care...someone out there cares, just like I care for her. Seriously, so don't...

    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

    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.

    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...

    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.

    Insignificance

    When I was 12, my father passed away. He had suffered from a brain tumour for around 4-5 years before it took a hold of him, eventually taking his life after living for 12 months longer than the original 6 given to him by doctors in 2006. Ill never forget the morning that we were...

    Urgh!!

    Feeling extremely low about everything.  The simplest things upset me and I feel I'm a target for every angry idiot about.  I'm hoping this feeling will pass, I think I am being super sensitive x

    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...
