    I'm sick of getting lost with my thoughts.

    Every night I always have that moment where I have all these horrible racing thoughts that make me think about suicide, and honestly I have no clue what stops me from just doing it. It scares me so much and I never know what to do other ten self-harm... I need help/:

    I would say I am an attractive female.

    I just recently got out of a verbally and physically abusive relationship. I like to go out and meet new people and almost always get hit on. I am not at a time in life where I can trust enough to be in a relationship so I feel like I'm using all these guys. Some of them seem...

    Thoughts

    My thoughts on the world are quite odd. I don't understand somethings to the point where I sometimes think they shouldn't exist. Like, why are people racist when we are all humans? We all have emotions, thoughts, dreams, goals, achievements, families, etc. We are all living and...

    Sometimes I will be sitting in my desk at school

    and drift off into thoughts only to realise where I am when the bell goes for break. I miss so much of school but I have amazing thoughts and ideas.

    Just some stuff to think about.

    Places

    Sometimes I listen to music and let my mind wander into a fun place. Sometimes I let my mind wander without music. I think of almost everything, but unlike the above, it is not always purely for entertainment.
