    Work And Money

    That's all life is about anymore. I feel like I shouldn't even call it a life. It's just work. School always has to come before my education. I'd rather not have to worry about jobs or grades. I wish it didn't have to be that way. I keep trying to tell myself it doesn't have to...

    Against Me

    The world cannot be against me, the people can.  Are everyone against me, Nope.  If it would be the case; well that would be okay too.   If there's good reasons or the truth to it, I cannot say nothing to it.

    A "new" Year? Really?

    So, it starts off the usual run of the mill celebration - food, fireworks, greetings. Going through the routine. However, I feel I have become so jaded that I can no longer "see" the goodness and hope that is usually connected with the bringing in of the New Year. Even worse is...

    My life sucks.  My fiancee decided to leave me 2 days before I went to settlement for the home we both picked.  And to add insult to injury, he won't even tell me why he left.  He only tells me, "I'm not ready to talk yet".  He is gone at this moment...

    I am tired. I have been fighting against the

    world since I remember myself. It's not as bad now. Actually the situation has improved dramatically. But the basic fear is still there: I feel that I am not allowed to be myself. That if I dare to express who I am then I will be in danger. This has to change. I need a life and...

    Am I Expecting Too Much?

    Hi,  Recently, I feel more and more enclosed. My emotions are closed and I feel like I'm wearing a mask when I'm with people. Even though I want to open up and share my feelings I think I will be too imposing and too annoying to be in their lives.
