I Feel Trapped In My Life

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 684 People

    Sometimes honestly I question

    why I exist. I think I do it to often. Why was I even born into this world? I feel useless, just dragging on with my life everyday. I wish my life were given to someone who deserves it more than I do.

    Trapped In Paradise

    I feel so trapped in my life... but I can't find a reason why. I have a lot going for me. I'm a straight A student in high school, I come from an upper middle class family, and I have the privilege of going to a private college preparatory school. If I have so much in my life to...

    Spiritually Trapped

    I know that ultimate happiness can only be found with God. But getting to God and feeling that joy is a very difficult thing to do. On the other side, while I do get some pleasure and satisfaction from the world, I also see how the scripture of various religions warns us not to...

    Is This It???

    Never, in my entire life have I thought I would end up like this. Alone, suicidal, homeless, empty, with absolutely no plans for the future, no interest in future, no dreams, no hope, no nothing! Is it me? Did I take some kind of wrong turn in my life that led me to this position...

    Feeling Trapped

    Did you ever feel totally and completly trapped? For me saying one word has thrown off every sense of myself. I don't know if I want to be married, having my life be decided for me at 24 years old. After the wedding that's it, my life is set. At 24 the only thing I have to look...

    I Feel Trapped In My Life.

    I don't really know what to say. The title says it all for me. I feel trapped in my life. Even though I'm only 14, I'm very mature for my age, and so you probably think this sounds silly, but I just can't stand it anymore. It's like a living hell. It's just the same old routine...

    Not From Here

    I am not from this world. I don't relate. It doesn't make sense. It's so messed up. Where I am come from, life is what you call divine. There is peace - always peace. Negativity exits but it is not as magnified and dominant as here on earth. At times I return home - during...

    Trapped In This World

    I don't know what I expected in life, but it sure as hell wasn't this. Whenever I look around, all I see is distrust, misery, or more likely, disguised happiness, and the odd person who is truly happy, who I generally hate for that simple reason. Pressure from all sides, I feel...
