    I live with my single parent family

    more than anything in the world leaves and you feel like you have nobody to turn to. You're friends are all living their lives, your family are far away and also too involved in their own lives for you to be able to just turn to them when you need someone. You try to stay strong...

    This is more of a confession.

    ... my dad was abusive to my mom, me, and my sister. He favored my older brother, and my older brother has raped and molested me before. Now I have multiple mental disorders and feel that my emotions have become flattened. Also that I'm slowly turning into a psychopath.

    The World Is So Large, And I'm So Alone

    Usually I'm not one to complain about anything, I don't ever share my feelings with anyone. I don't do that because I feel like no one actually cares, so why force it at all? Every day I go to school and I speak to my classmates but nothing more than a simple hello. I'm on good...

    because I really have no one by my side not even my parents, who have given me away. So when your parents leave you behind it's clear that you're fated to have a lonely life. It's been like since then, and now it's affecting how I interact with people. I feel like I can really...
