    I'm so far away. I can't give you a hug.

    Or hold your hand. Or even tell you how much I love you in person... I'm a horrible boyfriend 😕 I suck at my duties

    I Feel Weak and Powerless to Protect My Girlfriend

    I'm just feeling so fragile, so different today (especially last night! God.) The thing with me, when i keep on letting things pass, I just, tend to have a big bad outburst about it in time, like i get overtly sensitive & feel bad, and get, well, a panic attack. sigh.

    Mentally, I'm starting to feel weak.

    I'm losing my strength. I don't know how to handle this anymore. I don't know how much longer I can hold this in & hide it from everyone. I don't want people to look at me differently simply because I'm depressed. I don't want to get special treatment because of it either. I...

    A Losing Battle....

    Not so recently I wake up each day with a smile on my face, Thinking that I am no longer part of the race. A race where your self worth is at stake, For if you lose, you'll live a lifetime of heartache. I lived half of my life redeeming myself, Knowing that I am the only one who...

    As someone who never really cries,

    I have cried twice in the past two days. And it was all thanks to me over-thinking about myself and my family. I feel weak, because when I was younger, I learned that crying showed weakness unless it was about a boy.

    I don't know if it was warning me of anything or not. I feel helpless, useless, and even worthless. What is wrong with me? Is anything wrong? Maybe I'm going insane. No, they can't win. I can't lose my baby boy. He needs love, care, and most importantly, he needs his mother...

    I've cried so many times over the past year.  I've been complacent and unambitious, and my heart has been broken into a googol pieces.  I used to be so emotionally strong...even what some would consider stoic.  Now, I've just...changed.  So much.  I'm so...

    On the Brink of the Abyss

    I am always on the verge of a breakdown. I have had several mini-breakdowns, and I am always terrified that the next one won't be so mini. People look at me and see strength, a fierce will to survive and to help others survive. What I see is someone too afraid to not survive...

    I think I've become a lot more sensitive.

    Especially when people say something negative or rude. I can't seem to handle it. It puts me down. I feel like a I've changed. I've become bitter rather than better.

    I felt weak when I was younger. As a kid, I was sensitive and open. And i was born strong; i inherited a natural mental strength from father. But the world just seemed to take it from me. I seemed to attract abuse and bullies like the plague. So, I was weak until I hit the...
