    What Happened?

    I miss myself. I have been married for six years now, before that I was a single mom trying to go to college. This is my first marriage, and we have been through hell. You would think that the hard times would bring you closer to each other, and for a moment, they did. But...

    As a kid I remember the sun on my skin

    and how it felt so silky and warm, how happy I felt to be around those I loved, how gentle and kind I was to others, but then u died and I was left all alone. She didn't really raise me like u did. She was always working and at school. But your sons raised me until they had kids...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
