    Effort

    Today Ive been thinking about effort all day. As I speak with friends it keeps popping up in my head. How important effort is for all of us. I never thought about it a lot but it stuck with me today. We can have many desires and many wishes. We can have talents and skills that...

    I would go downstairs and sit in the living room with all the lights out.

    It is! Just being yourself

    and alone thinking about it! Sometimes I sit I'm the park, plan of how to find a solution to fix it.

    But it's not healthy

    for me. I have social anxiety and worry too much about everything. Thinking about bad stuff only makes a minor issue, to a major one. That often happens to me, since I'm single and don't have anyone around making me think about positive stuff. It's so easy to fall into that well...

    I get so angry and upset sometimes I don't like

    taking it out on people, so I leave and walk away crying I'm usually a happy bubbly person. I try to help everyone before me. Sometimes I just can't because what i been through and experienced but I use that to help others.

    I'm My Own Best Friend

    Sometimes I think that I might as well be loner. I love sitting and thinking about things. It's not that I don't like hanging out with my friends and stuff...but sometimes you just need to have time out. I have a very vivid imagination and when I sit and start thinking, I think...

    ~Wet Wind~

    It is midnight, I raise my east window, to find that it is raining hard out there tonight. This witch’s home is filled with soft music and candle light, the dogs snore. My body is tired but my mind isn’t ready for sleep, my spirit is at peace. An alert black cat named Salem...

    Sometimes I just feel the need to escape.

    I often need a break from the outside world and enjoy just laying in peace to think.

    My family is here from out of town

    but I just want to stay in my room upstairs. I'm feeling anti social and I just want some alone time. But of course that makes my mother think that I am depressed. So it goes.

    Most of the time; I just can't stand it

    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...

    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...

    Being Alone At Times Is Healthy

    than go out with my friends when im having some problems of my own. I just want to curl up in my bed and reflect rather than talking it out to someone who can possibly knock me out of my senses.

    He wakes up hunted, with voices in his head.

    Nobody knows it, but today he won't go unnoticed. He can't forget. Can't forgive for what they have said. He's never been so hurt, but today his internal screaming is over. Who do we blame? Do we blame the family, the bully, or maybe he just needed to be wanted... She takes the...

    When I write there is usually a swirl of words

    playing with me and saying "pick me"....so being by myself helps me to slow everything down to a stand still. Then I can play solitaire with my brain and figure out what words need to come out

    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...

    I'm annoyed at how people can react sometimes.

    ..When they don't realize the worth of something and they just downgrade it. They would value nonsensical works rather than one that was done with due consideration and time. Well, Screw you!

    Perhapes I Just Like Being Alone.

    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.
