    Lost? I'm Not Even Sure I've Ever Had A Passion For Life...

    I often find myself worrying about my intelligence-- or lack of it. I graduated from high school & college, but I'm starting to wonder if there isn't something seriously wrong with me... I graduated as valedictorian. Because of that, everyone expects me to be so smart...

    I Dont Know What Happend To Me

    I really don't know what happened to me. When I was younger, I had such a great life. My mom took me places, my family went on lots of vacations, and life was just better. Now that I am older, I don't know what happened. My dad started smoking, My mom is just mean to me, and I...

    Want To Reach Deep Down, And Come Out Of My Mental Prison.

    For as long as I can ever remember, I was torn between two people. My mother and my father. Always trying to appease the two people closest in my life. I traveled back and forth at such a young age, I became two different people for each of them, and lost myself, and my...

    I Lost My Passion For Life....

    The winter blues and SAD are well upon me now, each year gets worse and with the ever changing climate I find myself excluding and hiding away even in the warmer months.  I ask myself constantly what's the point in existing, the doors are locked to the outside world, I don't...

    Now It's Gone

    I am about to turn 23 and I already have absolutely no passion left for life. I've been around the world too. I haven't seen everything. But i've seen enough to know that what's out there doesn't impress me in the slightest. I have yet to meet any human that makes me think...

    I feel like it's coming back.

    See there was something I've wanted, science I was young. To take care of my sisters. I was 10/11 when they were born, and I raised them as my own. Due to life, I had to move out, and leave my sisters behind (not by choice) but this summer it just became possible for me to have...

    Where Is It?

    I can't tell you when "it" left. I have waited for my husband to want to be a part of our marriage for so long. I guess that I have lost my identity for wrapping myself around his life. And now that we haven't lived together for over 3 years because of his career, it's...

    Will To Live.

    You know how sometimes when someone survives some sort of accident that was sure to have killed them people attribute it to them having a strong will to live.  Well, sometimes I wish that I just lay down and go to sleep and not wake up simply because I lack the will to live.

    I Feel Like I Don't Have Much Desire Either

    I really can't explain it either. Seems like such a long story. But it started a few years ago. It has gotten somewhat better I admit. In 2008 my ex-husband divorced me. He married me to get US citizenship. I thought I was crazy about him, but we never really lived together...

    What's Missing?

    I don't really know what to say. I have almost no social life. There is no one I would say that I am "close" to, meaning that I don't believe anyone understands me or knows anything about who I am on much more than a surface level. I dislike my job... called into work today...

    He has taken everything.

    My life, my love, no he threats to take one of my best friends. It hit me hard. I feel a huge hole in my heart where love should be. He is getting more cunning. Sometimes I think he'll destroy us all. I have never gave up, so if does come down to this, I'll go down fighting.
