    My healing process begins with solitude

    Recently a good friend told me that I need to search for happiness. Going through a divorce has been one of the hardest things I've done in my life. It's as if a rollercoaster has gone through my body and soul and left me into little pieces. I am like a puzzle trying to put...

    I've Taken A Monopoly On Misery

    I guess it is a little like making 'war on terror'. I've come to the realization that it doesn't stop. Hope is the lie that makes a few moments out of every year bearable. The rest of it is a big suffocating joke. I didn't realize when I was born that I had taken out this...

    Being Sad

    People think i'm happy, but inside i'm sad. It's hard to explain, I dwell on everything.  My friends think I'm so outgoing, but i'm shy. I even had a panic attack over something so stupid. Only my sister knows How I feel.

    Slipping in the cracks of depression.

    I hate saying that "I'm depressed", "I have anxiety". It makes me feel like a charity case. I hate it. Depression really doesn't go away once you really are depressed.
