    Sigh...

    Something about the Christmas holidays that I love so much. The snowy days, the decorations, wrapping presents, Christmas carols, the television specials. But I always end up with a feeling of being broken hearted. Like so many other things, I build it up in my head, just to get...

    I can't let you go superman.

    Every time I see your username on here and I see our comments on my posts I almost cry. I'm holding the tears back because I know you don't want me crying. You want me to be happy. Miss you soo much #ConnorFranta

    Christmas is never the same without my mother

    It's been my first Christmas in care this year.

    I think I felt quite lonely once all my carers family were round, because well I'm not really apart of the family. Christmas is supposed to be, what I think, 'family' time. It's like I didn't know where to turn to or who to talk to. I'd rather of been on my own, I don't know...

    This is not how I want to live.

    I'm tired of waking up alone on Christmas Day and every day in between. I thought I was a good person. I'm not sure what I did to deserve this loneliness.

    It's not a sometimes feeling it's always but not in the sense of no ones there, sometimes even though I could be sitting next to a person I care for, I still feel alone.
