    Personally, I don't believe there is one

    such person who doesn't have an issue at one time or another and there are many who have more than they can bare.With that said,how about some empathy and some consideration taken before one says or does something ignorant to someone else!Like if you see a stranger walking down...

    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...

    I have many issues, where to begin, lol. To be honest, I think I make things into issues when they don't need to be. I'm very over sensitive and easily hurt.  At the moment I do have one current serious issue. With the nature of my job, my life is quite...

    My life had gone WAY WAY WAY WAY wrong and I don't have a clue why. All the people who see only the worst of me have complete control over me. How did that EVER happen? It hurts so much! And by doing so they have annihilated all the good in me- like there is no good whatsoever...

    human being is as disturbing as having sex with dog, or a child. It seems wrong. I'm not supposed to. Bad. Bad!! No! These things ring out in my head when I try so much as to have positive sexual fantasies about myself with another person. Wrong!! No!! Don't!! Bad!! Why? I...

    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...

    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...

    Things You Need To Question

    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...

    Apparently. I'm over emotional,

    over sensitive, obsessive and often over bearing. I have learned how to behave most of the time in real life. But often on here I will misjudge the situation, especially if someone initially makes me feel at ease and drop my guard. Then I freak them out. It's okay. I'm well...
