    Updated. I could never forget the time

    that the stranger living in my home sprayed me in the face with Lysol. She sprayed me about 5-7 times in the face directly in my eyes, nose, mouth, and neck, all over my face. At one time in my life, I was suffering with extremely itchy eyes, I still do, and I just remembered...

    I don't even know what I am striving for.

    .. progression? happiness? joy? I don't know. I almost feel like I should just go into a zombie state, and just give up on my dreams. Maybe I am just over tired.

    I don't see the point in trying to be

    or do good anymore... Anything good gets ruined. Any good time turns bad. I cant have anything good in my life for long, so whats the point of having a life if everything in it is bad.

    Two things I don't understand in life.

    I don't know why God made me and why He loves me. I've betrayed Him so many times. Two things I know in life. He made me and bought me back. But I don't know why. I'm tired of the fight. Weary of the feelings. Drained of hope. What is the point of all this? Pain...

    Sometimes life just feels like it's not worth

    living...my feelings don't match my circumstances or vice versa. I've lived through a lot of terrible things and when I start to feel like this I count my blessings and remind myself how fortunate I am. But I'm human and sometimes I really do want to just give up.
