    Day 4 of my break up,

    I have talked to my ex girlfriend everyday since. It doesn't even feel like we're broken up expect for her begging me to come back to her. I need to be single for awhile so that I can properly heal and be happy on my own but being single is hard.

    Every day is the same.

    I don't get any satisfaction. I've lost the magic of everything. I'm not greatful about life. A boring, numb, cold, unhappy, depressed person. Everything that I didn't wanted to be.

    I need a change in order to feel sane

    and feel alive and beautiful. A new hair color? A tattoo? A piercing? I have no idea what. Has anyone felt like this? If so, what did you change?

    Should I? Shouldn't I?

    I'm only 18, but I can't help but get depressed about my life. When I look at it, I can see that I haven't got a bad life. It's actually quite a good life. It's a typical, everyday life... I've got nothing to complain about. But I can't help but feel depressed and out of place. I...

    I'm In a Rut Deep Enough to Hang Up Posters

    It feels like I'm in a pretty deep rut of passivity right now. Feels like I need to change everything in my life situation. My job is OK, but it's not what I want to be doing and I feel like in this economy (in Michigan we're doing pretty poorly compared to the rest of the USA) I...

    Learning To Let It Go And To Have Faith

    The difference between praying and meditating is that when you pray you speak and when you meditate you listen. I've been holding on, so tightly, to everything as a lot of things have changed. Change is scary, you can never be sure what's going to happen next or where life will...
