    I know nobody knows how deeply I am hurting

    but that doesn't mean people don't understand what I'm going throw. It sometimes hurts a lot. But other times I like to show how strong I am to others and make sure they can't see the real me. I don't really know what to do anymore but I don't think I ever really did. It was...

    Do I Always Need To Explain?

    I try so hard to be strong for those around me. To not show how much I'm hurting. When I need to break down, I always do it alone, out of sight, out of reach. I don't want to burden anyone with my problems. But occasionally, I just break, like I did yesterday. One person, anyone...

    So, I have issues and he has issues but,

    I love him. I feel like I need to be there for him but I'm not sure how long I can take this. I'm slowly waiting for everything in my life to fall apart and be completed destroyed.

    Everyone is hurting or fighting some kind of

    battle, I hear it said a lot. Perhaps that is why I shrink back into myself when I am hurting and depressed. People are not equipped to help or love. There are so many messed up, wounded people walking around it's not funny. The older I get the more I see what we are really...

    I wish you could see what's wrong with me.

    it's all hidden, deep inside. Depression, anxiety, and a feeling that things are just not right. It is with these things I fight.

    Don't think my friends

    or family do understand. I'm seen as the strong one. I put up a face when I see them because I feel like I'll let them down. I cant be doing that. That's why I've joined a place like this really.

    I am in a roommate situation with my husband.

    it is so painful to receive no affection of any kind, just criticism and belittling. I take care of my grandchild (she lives with us) so I can't go anywhere. I don't mean to be such a downer, but I am so lonely I could cry. I am not looking for setting or anything gross...I just...

    When there is nothing to do,

    no reason to live, some people become reason for it. Then, this thought saves us that we are their love, their need, and a whole world to them. If we do not want to live, We have to live for them. When our souls cease to live, these people revive our dead spirits and give us...

    Girls like dangerous life styles.

    They don't want a respectable guy and nice one for that fact. You gotta look like a biker or jock to get a girl. If I'm wrong than why am I still single?
