    When I was a child, I always had this goal of

    becoming the ideal person I always dreamed of. And now that I am that ideal person, I kinda want to be that child again simply because that child is better than me today.

    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...

    .... 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...

    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...
