    Feel What?

    Sometimes I just feel so empty. Well, saying that I FEEL anything at all would be an out and out lie. Because there is nothing inside me anymore. I catch myself sitting and staring at a wall, my mind completly blank, not one emotion in sight. I start to wonder how long I have...

    Think About It

    So I've been doing a lot of thinking. I think my mom's the cause of my apathy. People ask me, "So, art, huh? What made you want to go into that?" and I say, "It's the least boring thing." So mom was selfish. She always would tell me "deal with it," "suck it up," "it's not about...

    Help!! I'm 19. No Job, No Interests, No Responsibilities. Why Am I So Lazy And Selfish?

    Many people around me are living with apathy. A lot of my friends, family members, people I barely know. But I don't want to live this way anymore. I don't want to live like a plant or a dead person. My parents give me food, a place to live in, anything I need to finish my...

    On Religion And On Friendships, By An Apathetic Youth

    In all honesty, I don't even know what this story here is about. I just felt like writing and decided to let thoughts flow without even knowing if I'll post this after all. I guess it's because I wouldn't talk to anyone in particular or tell any specific story. Now, I do have...

    Yes, We Can.

    I grow frustrated with people who claim that they nor I can ever change the world because we are only one person. History is ripe with examples to the contrary. How did we gain such freedoms in our country? They certainly weren't given to us. Take the Civil Rights movement...

    Do You See What I See?

    Do you see what I see? I see 7 billion people on Earth. I see 30,000 children dying of starvation everyday. I see half-naked super models exploiting themselves and selling their souls for money. I see one million pound of food thrown away everyday. I see decades of inhumane and...

    Have We Forgotten?

    You begin to forget what it feels like to live. You forget things. You forget that you used to feel alright. You forget what it means to feel alright because you feel like **** all the time, and you can't remember what you felt like before. People take the feeling of alive...

    Black Apathy

    When I am depressed I really have to fight apathy. To find light in anything is extremely hard. To control my thoughts, and find joy in anything is hard. To find hope again is hard. Everything is black and not worth anything. That is why I do everything in my power to fight it.

    One Woman Struggle

     The funny thing about fighting apathy is that its something you must ultimatly do on your own. Others may ispire or delight you but mood and inclination is likely to destroy the wonder of life.

    Her Only Strength At This Point Was A Practiced Apathy

    It feels like a hangover. Like a thin, grey, half-a-day where a head and heart heavy of thoughts and emotions from the night before could mill about in a satisfying sluggish monotony. Whenever the room started to spin, or the yellow-tinted paint started dripping off the walls...

    If I Convince Myself Life Has Meaning and Worth, Then It Does, Right?

    I make myself feel really angry! And frustrated! And hopeless! Why? Because I have a little voice in my head that pops up ALL THE TIME, to say what's the point?, who cares? why bother? how does you doing one thing or another matter in anyway, at anytime, anywhere? So I'm...
