    I tried to die once but I kept going

    because I found someone who was just like me. She told me everything and how she stands to fight for 1,000 of people a day for staying alive and I do the same.

    I think I found my actual purpose in life.

    Growing up I was always "Different" I never ever fit in with the general public ever, I always had this certain type of personality that made me stand out no matter where I went. I've had people tell me in the past that I am different, that I'm an individual, I don't let any of...

    Him..

    I honestly thought for years that I had no purpose. No reason to live. That I was just wondering aimlessly through the years. For no good at all. A couple months ago, I realized the wrongness of that. A couple months ago, I met him. Him. Such a beautiful soul...

    I know I do. It's the drive of my soul.

    And I have multiple. And when I figure one out, I get a sense of peace. I enjoy the little bit of lazy day sunshine. I turn the music on and enjoy a glass of wine. I celebrate the feeling of rightness. But what else? So close I can almost see it. But is it real or an illusion...
