    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...

    Im so heartless. Like seriously.

    I play along until everyone is emotionally invested in me, and I forget that not everyone can stop caring in the blink of an eye. So I do something stupid and everyone is hurt, and I'm like, "wtf just happened?" And then once again, I'm the villain. Sorry guys... Sorry I hurt...

    I'm always stressing over

    whether I'm bad or good. I want to be good but I feel like there's very bad things in me that hinder that. But I want to be good. It just feels like fighting my nature, you know? Maybe. I guess. Or like I'm lying.

    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...

    One of the first profiles I came across in the

    land of online dating was of a man that stated that he wanted no contact with women over the age of 35 that had never been married, because there was something clearly very wrong with them. I tried to laugh it off. I quickly decided he was a know nothing *** and continued...

    With Food.

    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...

    We all have issues. The idea

    that anyone has it together is a myth... Despite the occasional deliberately constructed appearance to the contrary. The only thing that separates the men from the boys, the women from the girls, is self awareness. Do you or do you not know that you're half crazy? Do you...

    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...

    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.

    I have issues. Everyone does.

    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...
