    Every time something changes in my life,

    moving house, parting with friends, graduations, deaths, new jobs, leaving old ones, even when a character in my favourite TV show leaves, I feel a deep sadness. I suppose its because I's not a very happy person, not much has really happened to give me a reason to be happy, so...

    I feel like everyone around me is moving.

    I don't understand why in life things need to change. Change can be a good thing but Why can't it all just be the same. And everyone just stop, Live in the moment and have fun. It seems everything is changing and nothing will ever stay the same. It hurts to have to live a life...

    I Am Change Intolerant

    I am completely intolerant of change. It is an unfortunate shortcoming of mine that causes me a great deal of stress in my daily life. Once I am used to something being a certain way, it is almost impossible for me to tolerate any kind of change. In the world of a person on...

    The changes happening are causing me severe

    anxiety. I can't cope. The minute I learned of this change I cried. I'm feeling alone in this. It's so ugly ...., I have horrible thoughts. My heart is pounding I can't do this. ..... Why. I ask myself why. I don't get why certain decisions are made. My hear is hurting.

    who doesn't mind routine much, in the sense that, if you take me to a restaurant and I order something that I like, I will order the same thing over and over again... why try something new when I already found something I like that works well? I hate risk and love to be on the...

    but in just a few days I will never have privacy again till I'm back in college. It's just one month of sacrifice. I should be able to do it, but its hard with all this nostalgia of better times in my mind. There were times I took this place for granted, and times I had the...

    This may seem like a silly thing to get worked up about, but I had a garage sale today, and now I am a little bit depressed. For me, this is like sifting through memories, deciding which are worth revisiting, and which are not. My husband and I are not going to have any more...

    .. But coming off of a long time of being depressed, I decided I had to change my entire life or I would never have any hope... All I did was make things worse. Now I'm lonier than before as I lost the friends I did have. I have no one left. It makes depression harder to battle...

    Over the past year everything has been changing

    and whenever something changes it gets crappier. I am so fed up with it and I just want things to be like they used to. Every day I think about how life used to be and everyday it makes me feel like **** knowing that it's never going to happen.

    I cannot deal with change.

    If the slightest thing alters, I start crying. My mother knows this and she got a haircut today. I'm crying. I know it sounds silly. Even I think it's silly, but every time I think about it I'm crying again.

    As time goes on, things will change. Doesn't matter if you like it or not, it's the way life is. Change. Many like change. But some people like me can't stop living in the past. We want things to stay forever, we don't want those special moments to end. But all good things come...

    The world become so different,

    and out of place. Seems like nobody knows the word manners & everyone gives up on relationships so fast. Life's gonna be a struggle no matter where you are. You're here now, so look up a little, and show a little hope. God knows we need it in times like these.
