    I want to quit my current company

    because I'm not happy with the environment, I've lost my passion in design, and I'm not happy with my officemates anymore. I've been open to new possibilites for my current career, but thinking about doing it again for another 2-3 years makes me ponder if I really want to be in...

    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...

    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...

    Be brave to let go of the past,

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

    I've been on this site

    for a while now, and I've met a lot of people I considered friends. Friend that I could talk to and go to when it was needed. They could always do the same. Now I only talk to 1-2 people I consider friends out of that group. Only 1 whom I talk to everyday and we have...

    I hate those moods where you don't really know

    what's wrong or why you feel the way you do, all you know is that you do! When you aren't sure what's missing, but you know something is. When you don't even what to talk to your best friends about it because you know they won't understand..yea those moods are the worst!

    I have no passion for life.

    I don't like what I'm doing. I'm feeling so alone because I'm not the type of person people generally want to stay around. I can't imagine anybody ever really caring about me so I'll probably be alone. That would be fine, but as I've said, I have no passion for life anymore. I...

    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...

    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?

    Everything is quiet, here in the deep end.

    In the numbness. The kind of deep-blue we never recover from. The past a fading light. Jesus, it never ends until it does. Like breathing underwater and flaming out all-together. There are no instances of optimism after this, this is the peak and it's as good as it's gonna get...

    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...

    Tonight I am prickly.

    Unloveable by any who dares. It happens. The quills go out and I can't stop them from shooting At anyone who approaches. It's a defense mechanism to keep me safe. At least until the morning.

    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...

    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..
