    This Life Has Been A Test. If This Had Been An Actual Life, You Would Have Received Instructions On Where To Go And What To Do

    You know those day where you can't stop thinking. I mean not just thinking more like micro-analyzing to the point that whenever you think about it you just want to throw things. Heavy things. Especially when you aren't sure what's going on or why but you just have horrible...

    Twiddle

    I noticed over the past few weeks that I can get depressed in a matter of seconds but being happy seems to be so hard. I feel like I don't deserve to be happy like even when I am I'm waiting for the moment for something to happen to twist my feelings. Waking up everyday thinking...

    I'm not sure why, but a lot of tiny,

    insignificant things bring me to tears, even if the subject isn't sad. For instance, the little button that says 'Welcome Home' whenever I log in fills me with a sense of.. disconnection, like it can call itself home, but this is nothing more than a website. It's not a happy...

    I Don't Like It

    I am supposed to be what is considered manic depressant or something like that. I'm supposed to be taking medicine for it and blah blah blah but I choose not to. I randomly get depressed and I know that it affects those close to me. Sometimes I have a reason for my depression...

    Been crying secretly on

    I don't trust easily because of what happened in the past. I can't say or open up my problems easily. I always have doubts if I can really trust someone.
