    I honestly have the worst luck.

    I have always lacked and yearned for little things that people take for granted. I am an only child off a single parent (my mom). My dad and his family basically have hated my existence so I don't talk to them. Me and mom have a love hate relationship. And my mom has no...

    Tonight my mom attacked me

    and beat me. She threw me to the ground and threw stuff at me. She called me "bit*h" over and over and then kicked me out of the house in my pajamas and no shoes or car. I wandered the streets in the dark and the rain. She told me that if I didn't leave she was going to call the...

    It's pretty sad when a 30 year old man tells

    you to kill yourself, But what's even worse is actually wanting to.

    Just quit smoking weed.

    I went for a walk and no wind was blowing through the palm trees. It made the earth look frozen in time and I could see just how strange life is. There's meaning in it.. Yet our minds fool us into thinking we're entitled to some concept called happiness.

    Maybe I'm meant to be alone forever.

    What if there is no one out there for me, what then? I think I'm being punished. I give too much and care too much for others. I'm tired of lies and just being a door mat.

    They say "Pain is temporary,

    and forever is the gain" But in reality pain never stops and it all goes to vain, After all the suffering You start to sense your life is just a disdain From birth till death, from dusk till dawn You keep wondering where your happiness has gone, Bad decisions and regrets eat you...

    My Life

    I'm perceived as the funny guy. The guy that makes jokes. In a way it's a facade. I use it to hide who I am. What's inside of me. I appreciate humor so when I talk to people I use it. I'm very creative. They say a poor life gifts you with arts. In a way I should be thankful... My...

    Hope?

    Loneliness is one of the more constricting emotions I experience. It’s the emptiness of being invisible in a room full of people. It’s the desolate feeling of struggling without stirring compassion. I see people move forward with their lives and I see those who are involved...

    The thing with depression is

    that unless you have it, or have had it, you can never fully understand what it is like. This is my way of explaining it. Depression is like you have been thrown into the middle of the ocean, but you've never learnt how to swim. There are people around you screaming at you to...

    The past 6 years have been a constant battle of

    depression, loneliness, paranoia Etcetc. I'm in that time of my life where I either want to give up completely or work hard to get motivation and fix it. There's days where I say I just wish I wasn't here, but it's not that, I just wish I was happy instead.
