    Love Lost In Death

    I Am No Longer Static.

    There's what I am, what I think I am and what I want to be. I have to let go of what I think I am because it takes liberties with what I want to be, interferes with it. I have to know what I am so that I can progress to what I want to be. You get hurt when you are proven not to...

    Lost Soul

    I am not a believer in the other world. I am not a believer in anything really unless I see it with my own eyes. But everything I use to believe has come into question. My parents are devout Catholics, they worship daily and they attend church more than a priest at times. I use...

    I Have Lost Me

    It was my fault. I let myself live my life around my husband's. Around his timing. His plans. His needs and wants. It used to work because I always managed to squeeze some time for me. But that all went away after my daughter came along. I love her to bits and have  not...

    Lost And Forgotten

    I feel that not only have I lost myself, but I have also forgotten who I really am. I have always been a people pleaser, shy, a very obedient person, well-mannered, and a huge daydreamer! I have obviously been wanting to break away from the people-pleasing person that I was so...

    I don't know where I'm going in life anymore,

    I used to be so motivated, so ambitious and had goals and dreams to aspire to, Now I'm lucky if I can even get out of bed 😔 I've had a lot of hardship in my life and I think it's finally broken me. I am broken.

    I feel like my life is going by too fast

    and that I don't know where to go after high school. I feel like I won't have a purpose afterwards. There is no job I'd really like to do - I don't know where to go from here. Everyday just seems like a waste. I'm on autopilot.
