    Sometimes when i'm going through phases

    when I'm really stressed out or anxious or depressed at the same I start to feel numb... It's probably a sort of coping mechanism, I suppose. So that I don't feel the anxiety, I tone down every emotion. It also happens when I 'm with a group of people talking/socializing. I...

    The Dance Of Disconnection..

    Its My Own Emotions That Do This

    My own bitterness and anger keep me in my own little corner. My disconnected seems to hide hehind my fake little smile. Because if I'm not smiling they will know and that is not good. If I appear the way I feel then I will be criticize by my mother, my friends, my employer...

    Sometimes I find myself writing thoughts

    and reading them at a later date, and feeling as though I am reading a stranger's thoughts and feelings. I can't recognize myself in anything. I am living life looking down at myself from above, being present but not truly present at all; here but never truly and actually here...

    Every Now And Then

    Every now and then I have days where I feel so hopeless and down on my future. It doesn't make sense because other days I feel like I can conquer the world. I guess I'm just feeling sad because I'm finally distancing myself from my exbf. I thought I wanted to still be friends but...

    Like Today

    Literally, right now, I am sitting here at my computer, writing stories for EP when I wish I was out somewhere enjoying my life with people I love. My girlfriend is asleep, my mother is here and she's asleep as well, and I have no friends except music. I don't really even feel...

    Most days I wake up and I call my parents

    since they don't call me. I think they are still trying to build my independence. But I've always been a bit of a loner you know? :( When I first joined EP I was on the verge if ending it all. In real life people don't understand. They see my physical appearance and judge me...

    I've been withdrawing from social interactions,

    since I stopped believing in faith and religion. I don't feel like I can connect with anyone. My wife is angry with me.

    Yup, I feel that very often.

    Actually, when I think about it, I always have that feeling somewhere deep inside. There are moments when I don't pay attention to it and I'm too busy but it's always there. I have always felt I am somehow different from everyone. Even from my closest friends. It's very hard...

    It's Really Pathetic

    I noticed it sometime after the abuse ended. I thought that now that it was over I would be happy. But then I realized how other parts of my life felt distant. I suppose as a defense mechanism during the abuse, I created another world made of novels, video games; it was really...

    Deliberate Disconnections

    I've gone my whole life never becoming completely connected to any one thing, I've never learned how to do one thing completely, or given myself to one person entirely. I'm not sure if this is a defense mechanism that allows me to stay safe from harm or from feeling stupid. It...

    I'm getting depressed again.

    I'm so angry. I have no idea how to let go of the anger. I am so mad about where I am in life. I want to be friendly with my family. But I am sick of being that quiet little girl who is insecure and scared and embarrassed and paranoid and gets abused taken advantage of and...

    Fish Bowl

    I feel like I'm in my own little ******* fishbowl, while everyone else is out swimming in the big wide ocean. I get stuck with this. Reinforced glass. Little stone castle and some plastic seaweed. You might read some of my stories and think you can 'relate' to me, but if you...

    How blindly we keep going on

    and on in life.. Not even pausing once, not even seeing all this.. When did life become a rat-race? To just reach, to achieve, to carry on and follow others, never questioning why and what is all this, never stopping to see where all the desires are taking us, to nowhere.. Do...

    I've always felt disconnected from those around

    me. Their happiness never matches mine. I don't understand their sadness. “I'm so excited!” It's not hard to fake it. It's not hard to fake cry, and charm people into thinking. Raw emotions are easy to fake. I've become really numb. Recently, something kind of strange...
