    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...

    She's gone and never coming back.

    I miss my friend but she blocked me from everything. A whole year of never-ending pain is wearing me down. It isn't fair that she gets to be happy while I sit here and rot because I loved her. Every time I feel like I've moved on, something triggers my memories of her. I wish I...

    Post concert depression.

    It feels like I haven't seen my boys in years when it was only 2 months and 8 days. I never got the chance to get VIP tickets to meet my boys, and tell them thank you. Thank you for all you've done, thank you for not hurting me yet, you have yet to leave me. And I know you won't...

    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...

    No one knows why I am hurting deeply

    even If I tell them what's wrong. I mean it's nothing that they could do. College starts in a few weeks.. Don't know about these loans which I have to pay back in a few years, my boyfriend is going away to college and it's very painful for him not being here supporting me...

    Right now. But inside, i'm dead. No words, just silence. All alone, loneliness.

    All my friends complain to me with their

    problems. Sure I try to help and try to be a friend but sometimes their problems are so little I don't think they understand how I have problems to. They act like they are the center of the universe. But I can't complain my problems aren't big enough either.

    I hate this! I can never seem to make anyone

    happy. There is always something I do that just hurts them and makes them hate me. You're right tho. I'm just a little ***** that needs to grow the **** up. I will never love myself for who I am. I just need to die and make everyone's lives easier.

    Every day I carry so much pain with me.

    I hide it, because some people abuse the knowledge. They will pour salt in the wounds that cause me pain. The people I usually trust simply give me the usual 'cheer up', or 'you'll be fine', and the best of all is 'you're a strong person'. Yes of course, but in the mean, I'm...

    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...

    Either I'm a great actress

    or people close to me just don't care enough to ask what's wrong. I fake a smile everyday. There are times when I've thought about ending my sad existence but I know I could never actually do it.

    I'm Hurting Badly --

    No one knows that i'm hurting. There's not one person to talk to about it, so it lies inside of me and poisons my thoughts. I fell in love with a man 17 years ago -- he hurt me deeply -- 7 months ago, I met a young man on Facebook, we chatted and then began talking on the phone...
