Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 7,191 People

    This may sound silly,

    because it's not something people would say I need. However, I long to have a good group of friends, best friends that are always around. I want them to be fun loving people. So many people in my life are boring and bring me down. I want to live my life as a young woman and...

    Ever since the break up I feel

    that I'm not the same person and that I forget something every day. Every time I think about her it makes me sick to my stomach knowing she is being held by another... Broke up 3 years ago. My life is taking a path that I'm not sure how I've managed to get on. I am not happy...

    At times I wonder... What is life all about.

    .. Is it Achievement??? Success??? Glory??? Money??? Power??? Love??? I really never get the answer... Maybe it depends on person to person... Am not a successful person.. Yet am a survivor... I never had any glory... But never lived as hatred... I dont remember any achievement...

    The Important Things

    A philosophy professor stood before his class with some items on the table in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with rocks, about 2 inches in diameter. He then asked the students if the jar...

    Breakup

    It was cool, breezy, a hint of autumn mixed with the remnants of what had been the summer my life changed. Not a sappy love story, I am certainly no prince charming but something real. Those who say love is intangible have never felt love so real you can touch it, caress it, and...

    I've felt like this for years.

    It's frustrating!!! I've tried to take different paths, to see if I can fill this void but so far nothing. I'm constantly trying new things to see if something will just fall into place. Sometimes I fear that the thing missing from my life is me.
