    Negativity

    - So here I am trying to be ever so positive and feeling lower and lower every day. Sometimes I can barely get up the give-a-damn to get out of bed in the morning. Every day is worse than the last. And then what happens? I finally give up. I make the most negative decision I have...

    It's been about five month

    I probably should have gotten therapy years ago

    but never did. I'm so reluctant to share my problems with anyone. How could they understand, anyway? I'm so different everyone else. So I keep it to myself. I'm always the one being strong for others until it becomes to much and one day I just explode into tears alone in my room...

    I've learned that happiness is what you make it.

    If you want to be happy, then be happy. Suppress negative thoughts and encourage positive ones. Cut off unhealthy friendships / relationships and only encourage positive ones. Be around people who lift you up and not bring you down. It's actually surprisingly easier to achieve...

    But it's not happening.

    I feel worthless. Like I'm not needed ever. I can see myself being alone till I die :-( I've never felt so alone. I miss those cuddles in bed at night. Or those hugs around the waist and kisses on the forehead. But I always seem to be last option. Why can't I be someone first...

    To move or not move. That is the question.

    I have a chance to run away from my unpleasant life but don't know if it is a wise move. I would be losing everything I have to go to the unknown...alone.
