    I've been trying to reject this guy

    for three days now, but it seems as though he still has not gotten the message! I just want him to leave me alone. He constantly texts me even when I blatantly ignore him. I'm not sure whether it's because he's dense or just stupidly persistent. I only met him around last week...

    I'm tired of having to make very big decisions

    Totally Irrational

    I know this is ridiculous and irrational, but I get stressed over being stressed. It's this whole dumb circle that repeats itself, and I really hate it.

    Today. I destroyed a mans hope today.

    I didn't know what to say. When he asked "what's wrong with you?" I replied, "it's what I do." He looked at me in distaste, A horrid scowl upon his face. You see the problem isn't him, it's me. I forgot how complicated things could be. I loved him more than he could know. To bad...

    There's nothing like being called in to cover

    for someone who left a pile of unfinished work and I have no clue what any of it pertains to. The sweet part is I made it my b**ch. I need a raise.

    They don't understand everything I see

    and hear, and how it all just builds up inside. Everything just remains, and I'm constantly thinking about it. The thoughts don't go away. The constant worry. I get so worked up about it and stressed and nobody understands. :/ Oh the perks of being a teenager.

    It's beginning to affect me physically.

    I am having thoughts of running away, disappearing completely or hurting myself. Trying to think more positive. It's worse than normal because of lack of sleep. Hopefully, I'll sleep better tonight.

    less but things don't always work out the way you want them too. I was stressed out when I had to audition to get into my choice university's music program. I stressed when I helped a local high school orchestra with The Wizard of Oz play. I stressed when I had 3 concerts in the...

    I can't handle hearing everyone's problems on

    too of my own. I only have 3 friends I regularly kick it with and my fiancé. I've had to limit communication with my family because they stress me out SO badly. It's healthier that way and I'm fine with it. I'm just very emotionally sensitive.
