    Time To Go

    As I was trying to navigate my way on the freeway in the rain, I was getting stressed about a couple of near-crashes. At one point I stopped to wonder what I was freaking out for. "Why do I care whether or not I get into an accident when I don't even want to live?" I don't...

    Lost But Not Found

    Recently I have had an infuriating trend of losing things and it's really beginning to bug the hell out of me. I've later found most of those things, but what really gets to me about this is my new theory that the world, no the universe, is out to screw me over at my own expense...

    Eek.

    I'm not sure where to start.  I have a lot of issues.  Actually, it is probably about the same as everyone else.  But since I am going to therapy and trying to figure them all out it seems like a million. I feel like I could make a very long list of my issues...

    Trust Issues

    Every person has issues. I believe mine mainly has to do with trust. I find it hard to trust people at times, and it takes me quite a while to show them my real self. The root of this fear comes a long way, probably from my childhood. Coping with this can be hard at times...

    Things You Need To Question

    Emotional issues aren't as easy as "Well, if you want to stop acting that way, then stop." Emotional problems can be rooted in mechanisms built as far back as childhood where at that time they offered an appropriate coping strategy for one's environment but now in an adult...

    Freefall

    "those" Moments

    Have you ever had one of "those" moments? You know the ones I am talking about. The ones where everything is moving along fine, your happy, blissfully and peacefully content even. You've had a good, maybe even a great, day and all is "right" with the world. Then, someone says...

    I have some people issues.

    When I'm at school people want nothing to do with me. I can't seem to interest people with my conversations or make many new friends. It's always been like this. I just wish I had people to talk to on a regular bases.

    Are You Sure?

    I've often wondered about mental illness. Are there such things as disorders, or is it all a chosen state of mind?  I know I've felt "depressed" before, I believe we all have or will at some point.  I feel like it was almost a conscious decision to feel that way.  I was angry...

    And as many times as I have helped or want to help or will help, I remain firmly planted with the idea that although I may experience similar issues or experiences, never will I say (or mean to say) "I know exactly what you are going through". I don't, no one does, except you...

    Throughout my life people have occasionally

    asked "You excited?" about something forthcoming. I never have been. I met excitement one day this summer. I couldn't sleep that night. I've been wondering if a lack of exposure makes it stronger or if the obliteration of calmness is just due to a lack of practice. I've been...

    There is part of me that wants to fight it. Part of me, that rises to the occasion. Part of me, that puts on combat boots. There is this part of me, that wants to win, that wants to overcome, that yearns for peace. But part of me hides. Part of me doesn't care about repercussions...
