    I Use To Do Art

    I use to love art. I really do. I love to draw, add shadows and draw objects or cartoons. I also like using strange objects and magazines as a source of art. Problem was, my family were against it. Especially my parents. They always put it in my mind that art will not get me...

    This Is Not Who I Want To Be

    Who am I? This person isn't me. I'm not my depression. I have a whole life that isn't this person. I have an entirely different personality when I actually get to feel happy. Why can't he be around more often? He's who I was growing up. And who I want to be again...

    .... This could be a little rambly.

    Lately.... i've been feeling like i'm a different person. I'm not sure if i'm depressed, if i am i think i could be denying it, or if i'm overexagerating my current set of circumstances. I know that there are people that have it worse than me. I always feel like i could be...

    Lost the Plot

    Ever looked in the mirror and didn't recognise the person looking at you. I mean that literally. When I was younger the person in the mirror always looked kinda scared. And I was. I was entirely timid and shy. But I had hope. A sense of humour. I KNEW I was going to do great...

    I Dont Know Where I Went

    I don't know where the real me went? I almost forget what it feels like to be me. In the last 10 years I have evolved so much and lost parts of me that made me...me. I feel empty inside most of the time and I don't know why I dissect my life so much. It feels as if I am...

    I was once a fun loving flirty innocent girl

    and now I am a washed up cold thing. I feel as though I cannot feel love. What I have done to my mind and body in the last year makes me feel like a bottle without a message on the shore... something is missing. I look at pictures now and that young look full of wonder and hope...
