    Guess I gotta take some time

    for "me" and figure some things out right now. LIfe can get so hectic when your scrambling, trying not to let other people down.. you forget about yourself. Chasing the wrong things, the things you THINK will fulfill you from the inside out, just don't seem to cut it anymore...

    Definitely feel as if there's nobody in this

    world who I can express my thoughts to at times without seeming totally insane. Being alone is wonderful, but being alone with thoughts sometimes isn't the most fun.

    Is that possible to believe in something

    without any hope for the future? It is not fair to be blamed for not believing someone in this situation.

    Sometimes, I like to be alone,

    just alone, without nay gadget, locked myself in the room, close the window, just me alone in quietness. I find it relaxing. I can think about many things, My past, my present, and what would I do in the future, what I want and what I don't want. I can focus on it. But it only...

    I believe this is what I need now.

    I can't drain the life out of the people I love. I need to stay strong and return to them in a better condition than I am now. This will put things at a big risk of falling apart, but keeping things in perspective, I must reflect on the things that can make me come around.

    when someone will message me being all happy and **** like "Hey :)" and I'm just there glaring at the screen and ignoring them. Then they put "Hello?" And I'm still ignoring them and then they say "Anyone there?" And I'm getting even more annoyed that they ant just take the hint...

    I feel like when I am with people

    for too long my mind starts to become disorganised. I have to concentrate when I'm with people, make the effort to socialise which is to the detriment of my mind if that makes any sense. After a while I find it exhausting and I just need time by myself to process the day. I...

    most of the time I prefer to be alone.

    I like to immerse myself in TV books or movies and hate when other people interrupt or ruin the mood with comments. but mostly I don't feel free to think and feel fully unless I'm alone.

    I'm used to being alone,

    primarily I guess. I'm not used to friends. I'm pretty much a loner/one-best-friend type of person. Being social is new to me, but, to my friends, it's like, "you're so popular." When it's just ironic. I have very few true friends. I just know a bunch of people casually that I...
