    and always asks my mom to do things for her and today my mom lost it...she comes in yelling and says something that I never though I'd hear my mom say, she said "I just wanna slam my car into a tractor trailer on my way to work!!" And now she is depressed and is just laying on...

    So I'm Going To Cut Myself Off From Everyone For A Little While

    I don't even know what to do right now. All these different feelings I don't know. So I'm just going to avoid everyone. I don't feel like having to deal with lying to them and pretending there's nothing bothering me. I hate when people ask if I'm okay, because I know they just...

    I know it's a choice,

    but I hate how the working world expects u to be on all of the time. Definitely makes taking a break more vital!

    I'm heading home from college

    for the weekend to get work done where I can relax. I hopped on the train as usual, but this train apparently was special, and brought me to a sketchy station pretty far from home. The next train is in an hour and a half, and it's been 40 degree weather all week. My stupid...

    I need a break. I can't do this anymore.

    I've lived my whole life being dictated by how someone else is coping as to how much freedom I can have. Abusive childhood, abusive relationships, now a sole parent to a child with medical and disability issues. I am never allowed to put my needs first. Their needs are put...

    I just need like one week

    where I can be away from the insane world of people. So I can remember how the world really works. I need to be away from their constant movement. Alone. One week of just myself. No people whatsoever. Just me and nature. Quiet me time.

    The last 2 years of my life was extremely

    stressful. I've moved countries, went job hunting, was retrenched a year later, found another job, all while my wife wants to leave me and she told me of some of her affairs. My body feels like one big spasm, all the time. I think it's time to give up, let it all go and just...

    The hours that I work in this place are

    so tiring. Not only that but it's mentally exhausting working in care. I never keep my days off because they are always short but I really do need some me time. I'm feeling far too drained.

    Some days you just need a victory.

    It's easy to be a soldier and take the hits because you don't see an alternative, to fight cause you don't have an alternative, but that's no victory. A victory feels special.
