I Feel Like Something's Missing

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 444 People

    I once stepped out of my comfort zone

    and expanded my reach. I grasped onto something that felt good. I tried to make it mine but it wasn't mine to be had. I had to let go. I've since then come back into my bubble, but now the area inside is bigger. Too big for simply me. It leaves me longing for something I can...

    The Broken Piece

    When I wake up everyday, it's the same routine. I get ready, go to school, come home, go to bed, wake up, repeat. I can't help but to feel like something is missing inside.. like there's something that's keeping me from being a whole. I'm not sure how to explain it. But it makes...
