    Too Emotional For This Cold, Logical Existence...

    I am sane in a world that sees me as insane and illogical. Everything I do is led by what my heart feels, rather than what my head thinks. For over a decade since I turned nineteen, this has done me no favours. Thirteen years since my first sexual encounter. I think the mere...

    So my parents raised me

    that pain is so excuse. Physical pain is no excuse to not win first place, emotional pain is no excuse to not be polite 24/7, my thoughts opinions and feelings simply don't factor in anywhere. So now Im growing up and Im very confused by my own feelings and I don't know what to...

    ...so my depression is back.

    Almost 1 year since I've cut myself (July 15). So I guess I just wait till the 15th and then I can actually make myself feel better.

    Why live without purpose?

    How can we have a purpose without a cause? How can we find a cause without a destination? How do you set your destination with no direction? How do you find direction without motivation? What's left to give motivation?

    The Empath's Curse

    The title says it all. For me, it is a curse when I become overwhelmed. Try as I might, I simply can not turn my feelings on and off. There have even been moments when I've become physically ill. I know now it is due to the fact that I turn all of those emotions inward...

    I wasn't sure if this would already be an

    experience, but it makes me feel slightly better to know that there are others who experience life in this way. I used to be able to handle it, and even saw it as a positive. I felt it allowed me to understand the world better, to empathsise with others, and experience this life...
