    How To Stay Positive

    Lately, a lot of people have been asking me how I stay positive. You always hear people say that it starts with loving yourself, but I think it's the other way around. I say this because I don't love myself, but I have so much love to give. First, you have to erase the negativity...

    Seriously...I don't normally vent like this.

    ...but right now this is one if those moments I feel I'm gonna sink...I can't stop crying....sometimes I feel- what is the point of this life? How long do I have to endure such pain and dissapointment? Survivors get tired too, ya know. Just want happiness and to be the true...

    I'm going to need someone to explain to me

    why there can be leftover food from two weeks ago and when I finally eat it, somebody just so happened to lay a claim on eating it and then I get blasted for it. I'd bet my next five paychecks and my camera that if I had never touched it, it'd still be there two weeks from now

    I hate when others steal,

    rob, or upset my peace. I'm in such a horrible mood right now to the point that I cant even vent. Its that bad. Crying and thinking about things only makes it worse for me to cope. There is no coping it seems. I'm not depressed, not suicidal but the things that I'm confronted...

    Is it bad that I don't

    even care enough or have the energy to point out or tell my mom that she is actually the one that needs counseling to overcome her issues with me, like she has done a million tomes to me? Its almost not even worth the effort.

    A letter to his ex. When you found him he was

    I am having trouble finding the words.

    I feel sad, I feel angry, I feel pathetic, I feel annoyed, I feel weak, I feel crazy for having all of these mixed feelings. I feel controlled, mentally. I feel stupid and silly. I feel like I don't have the energy to face the world. ugh.

    for absolutely nothing. Or so I thought. My witch of a teacher kept me after class to discuss in what ways I am "not an exception" and "a disgrace". One detention is for being dishonest. Ok, first of all I am nothing but honest to her. I tell her the truth and apparently that is...

    hoping for with all your being doesnt happen. But it's extremely harsh when life gives you a taste of that thing you want then snatches it right back from you.
