    I know my struggle isn't really an incredible

    one, but at the moment I need to be with myself and not rely on the petty approval or disapproval of others. Avoiding issues does NOT make them go away but sometimes it gives one peace of mind.

    I used to be happy, don't get me wrong.

    I used to love laughing, and smiled a hundred times a day. I used to surround myself with good happy people. Now, It's not the same I'm not happy, I cry most of the time. I hardly laugh, it just feels fake. I isolate myself and shut all of them out, because what's the point? I...

    Why? Why at this moment,

    I feel so alone? Is it because of boredom and I have nothing else to think about other than sadness? I wish someone would just knock on my door and offer their company.. but as they always say, "Be careful of what you wish for." ****. Now I'm wishing that no one comes knocking...

    Jealousy? Envy?

    Jealousy. Envy. You can give this feeling many names, but i could never feel this way. The right word would be 'hurt' because i could feel the pain right there in my heart. A physical pain. Too painful to ignore. It knocked the breadth out of me for a while. I would feel...

    sitting in your room,

    crying quietly to yourself, hoping no one can hear you. wiping away the tears quickly when someone walks in and painting a fake smile on your face, but when they leave the paint washes away from the tears rolling down your face.

    Its Weird, But When I Am Alone...

    Its weird, but when I am alone, i don't feel alone. When I am trying to make connections with other people I feel alone. Its like out of sight out of mind with me. If I don't know there are people immediately about me, I don't think about being alone.

    You know when you wanna talk?

    Literally about anything. The sky, birds, the color of paint you've just painted your room.. You don't care.. You just know anything beats the thoughts you're thinking. Anything beats being alone..

    Hey, I'm Breanna and I'm 17 years old.

    Today is my first day on this website :) so I guess I'll talk explain stuff about me. I'm asexual. I'm agnostic (please don't shove your religion at me). I love horror movies, reading, and being artistic. I have a boyfriend so please don't throw yourself at me.
