I Lost a Friend

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 681 People

    He passed away last year.

    Every day I go to school, I think about how he should be on campus, taking classes, working on becoming a doctor. Even though it's been a year since it happened, it still gets hard at times....

    Problem Child

    “How dare you disrupt my class?” Mrs. Burrows screamed, bending down right in my face as she grabbed the binder I was writing in and tore the top page from it. “Where’s your homework?  Where’s your damned book?” She continued, getting louder and angrier. Great; the...

    My friend did not die or move away, but at times, I wish she had. That would ease the pain that's been eating me away for almost a year now. I have  a hard time trusting people, partly due to my childhood friends being very unreliable, and I truly believe that I deserve...

    Not to death. I met her in college

    Her Flame Went Out, She Didn't Die.

    I believe seeing death from, the last few minutes before the body gives way, are life-changing for many who witness it. In Hinduism, the body is put on a funeral pyre and it slowly reduces to ash. I find it a very violent way of the last rites taking place, so electric...
