    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.

    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...

    And I have. For years

    since childhood I felt sad mostly because I let everything around me deeply affect me. I didn't separate myself from others or my circumstances. As a child you can't change your attitude unless someone guides you by caring for you. Everyone needs to know who is on their side...

    Trying Hard Not To Be Sad... It's Not Working.

    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.

    Well, I can't stop being sad one hundred

    percent of the time. But I need to find a way to deal with my problem of feeling lonely all of the time, which could take a while since I have a serious amount of trouble relating to people in general.

    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...
