    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...

    That Someone Is You

    I don't know where you are or what happened to you. I don't know why you left. I just know that my heart is breaking. I wonder, are you sick? Are you lonely? Are you even alive? I fear one day that you will disappear and I will never know what happened. Is this that day? Is this...

    Actions do not define our ture nature,

    for our actions may simply be due to necessity. One's True character is hidden and inate. It is only through time and effort that we get a glimpse into one's true nature. Sometimes that nature is far more beautiful than anything and the only thing you need. P.S Miss you alot...

    The Puzzle The Enigma

    Something's missing. It always has been. I think no one really knows me. The ugly parts are pretty hidden. I don't like them, but I admit that they are there. I don't trust anyone. I want to trust, desperately. I want to show all my hidden desires and weirdness and to be...

    I feel like my life has been reduced to the

    very mundane things of everyday living. Although I'm thankful, sort of trudging angrily along at times.

    That's for sure! You feel alone.

    .. You feel unloved... You need companionship... The warm hugs... The loving smiles... I am talking about love. Where can I get it from? I've been cheated on once and thought I could develop a relationship with a mute girl... But everything seems against me somehow. No matter...

    Seduced By The Image Of Reality

    When I would look through magazines as a small child, I used to think that there must be a magical world somewhere where everything looked--and was--perfect. I could see pictures from it in those pages, the smoky air of dimly-lit rooms heavy with drama as the young models lounged...

    I'm So Lost Right Now

    So I've been separated from my wife since the end of July of last year. She cheated on me and we have had no such intimacy since. I'm still so torn up inside and find myself lost and confussed about everything. I want nothing more than to love and be loved and have a family and...

    Why does love feel so good,

    but it hurts so bad! I love the feeling of loving someone unconditionally but it hurts so bad when they crush your heart and trust. I guess I'm weak when it comes to love.

    I'm not worthy of anyone/anything.

    I've never felt so damaged in my almost 16 years. Usually when someone loves me or says they do, I always find a way to escape the fact that yeah they actually care but everytime I give it a chance, I usually leave the guy because that feeling I always have that there's...

    I isolate myself much more

    than I should because I've gotten used to being the sore thumb, so I don't bother anymore. Being a human, and not a rock, I don't have to tell you how painful that is. It's become even more so when you don't know how to let anyone in any more and when you do, you're expecting...

    My husband died nearly 6 years ago.

    I miss him so much and I miss his companionship and someone who cared about me. Someone who I meant something to. I always said I would never need or want anyone else in my life if something ever happened to him. But now I just miss being important to someone.

    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.

    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...
