    I'm not sure that I am

    where I should be on my life. I have a steady job, a house, a car... but I feel like I'm not where I should be. I dislike my job and I'm constantly wondering if I should quit and try to start over. But if I do, I feel like I'm not even sure where to start. Throwing everything...

    Be brave to let go of the past,

    And fight for the present that you deserve. A better future is always yours.

    I just wanted a straight forward answer just like sometimes you do. My heart is broke. Contemplating just deleting this... Because honestly I don't want to live without you in my life. I'm lost for words... So I remember watching a movie and will use quotes from it to speak for...

    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..

    Lemme explain:I did well in school.

    Got good grades, listened to my parents for the most part. And now I'm feeling lost because I don't have much passion for anything anymore. Well I never had much passion for life in the first place. Maybe its because I've been at home for the past couple of months. I've gotten...

    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...

    My guy and I "met" on Ashley Madison three

    weeks ago or so. We exchanged emails, then met for coffee. It was instantly wonderful and intense. Then the guilt came. The next week we made it to the hotel, had our time, and it absolutely killed him. He was afraid he was hurting both me and his wife. I made no attempt...

    How do you learn to trust

    when you've been hurt so many times? How do you say everything is okay when it's anything but? How do explain why you are so sad when there is no reason to be?

    It's very useful to take a close look at your

    daily activities once in a while and check how useful they still are, even more so for me and my limited energy. Quitting hobbies that no longer serve their purpose, such as games that feel tedious rather than fun, frees up a lot of time and energy for better ways to spend your...

    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...

    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'm realizing that no matter how strong I think

    I may be, if someone is trying to be there for you and help you. Let them. It can be easier to deal with pain when you're not alone and can have support and help, vs dealing with it alone and it consuming your mind to the point where it's unbearable. I couldn't do this alone. I...

    For a short while I had some sense of direction.
