    I just feel like it no part of my life I fit in

    with 100% even like 80% I always seem to be left out of some huge thing. I'm talking friends, family, relationships, school, work... It feels like I am in constant limbo and my life is flashing before my eyes and am missing out on real fun. I know people have it worse than me...

    Constantly trying to be positive in constant

    negative situations gets tiring. I keep saying to myself things will get better, they will get better but they never do. Everyday it's an argument with someone. Everyday I'm wondering why I have to work so hard to get him just to talk to me. Everyday I'm making mistakes and the...

    Summer Wine

    I wish people had been honest with me. I wish they'd tell me to prepare myself for a life time of disappointment and heartbreak. I wish they'd tell me that I'm never going to grow out of my awkwardness, so I'd better get used to it. Ugh. I suppose we're all a bit lonely and...

    I Feel Purposeless.

    I have long periods of time when i dont have anything to do, and instead of relaxing, as i seem to have lost that ability, i just sit and ask what i should do. This isnt the off-hand "what shall i do to occupy my time" this is the deeper what shall i do, how shall i proceed with...

    Wandering. ...... I walk with my head held high,

    not showing the world inside. If they could see what lies just under the skin what would they think? I hide all of my hopes, dreams protect them from judge mental snears. My thoughts wander around lost in my head, as my heart yearns for things better left unsaid. Lost I wander...

    I am 25 now and have depressed on a consistent

    basis for about 12 years. There are good days and bad days, but it often seems that the ratio is not in my favour. On paper I should have a lot to be thankful for: I have a good job, youth on my side, and a place of my own. But I am constantly drowning in a swamp of self-hatred...

    I feel like everything I had to ground me is

    slowly slipping away from me like I'm in an ocean drowning and trying to swim to shore but I just can't reach it. I can't get to shore and I just want to find my way back to solid ground.

    What A Long, Strange Trip It's Becoming

    I picture myself like a modern huckleberry Finn. Wandering over America living the most envious of easy lives. But I don't want to. I feel as if I'm searching for either home, or as a film put it, my magical lost princess. Untill then, I will keep enjoying life and gathering...

    After coming out of depression,

    I changed as a person. I used to be an ******* just to make other ******** laugh, I used to put my exgirlfriend down to make myself feel better because she cheated on me but immediately regretted it and I was too "proud" to see past it. I try to be nice to absolutely everyone...

    I am completely lost right now.

    I woke up for school and looked at my phone. I saw that my ex. The infamous ex who I haven't heard from since he left me three years ago. Added me on Facebook and also sent me what looks like a long thought out message. I jumped up in bed yelling what the F?!! Surprised...

    Once again I spent the day feeling sorry

    for myself and doing absolutely nothing at all to change my situation. I know I should brush it off and just start anew tomorrow but this has been going on for so long. I just can't seem to find the motivation. :/ it's getting harder and harder to see the silver lining..

    For a short while I had some sense of direction.

    I had an idea of what I wanted from life, from myself and I was beginning to figure out how to make it all come to life. I got lost somewhere in my pursuit of purpose and happiness. It's something I've done before. Only, this time the path I was taking to it before I got lost...

    You know that feeling you get

    when you aren't exactly sure if you've been away awhile? The type of mentality that ensnares the mind. It won't let go, at times, but its usually transitory. It comes in flashes, in-between the rain clouds overhead. But when it refuses to release, when all remains translucent...
