    I'll Try My Best to Explain

    Lately, I haven't been feeling myself. There's a sudden feeling inside me that I know I am meant to accomplish something in life but I can't quite put my hand on it. There's more in life that I have yet accomplished. For some reason I feel as if I have to do something in...

    I haven't been feeling how I should.

    I haven't been happy and haven't been myself. I battle anxiety and depression and it seems to be coming back. But its not about to take me down. I'm gonna make some changes and get myself feeling better. I'm too young to be unhappy feeling. :)
