I Remember the Day I Lost Myself

Have you ever felt lost? Lost your moral compass, your ethics, and morals? Maybe, you lost yourself with a lover, a loved one, or just felt down. Tell us your story, when did you lose yourself & why. 70 People

    They tell us that suicide is the greatest piece

    of cowardice... that suicide is wrong; when it is quite obvious that there is nothing in the world to which every man has a more unassailable title than to his own life and a person.

    I'll Never Be the Same Again

    I don't know why, or how, but as long as I could remember I've had this problem... It was my first day of kindergarten, I went with my dad and my cousin, we went to my cousin's classroom first, it took my dad AND his 1st grade teacher both to take my cousin into his classroom...

    Lost And Found...

    I married young and my husband failed me... I left him to relieve myself of the stresses of our marriage. However, leaving him left me feeling as if I was a bore and not that good of a time. I felt too moral and green... leaving me wondering if others would perceive me this way...

    She was up late at night,

    couldn't sleep, and went looking for him. It didn't take long to fund him alone in the night, himself. Come here, he told her softly. Like a child, she followed his voice. By this time, the only voice she could hear. . She told him she didn't sleep because she was afraid to...

    This day was the worst day of my life.

    There is no greater emptiness then the realization of loosing oneself. I wasn't eating I wasn't sleeping, I had dark circles around my eyes, you were able to see my rib cage. I lost about 25 pounds, I lost my job I lost my boyfriend of almost two years, lost my grandfather to a...

    I don't think I had ever really found myself.

    I remember the day that I lost the thing I held most precious. In that day, I lost everything that I was. November 1, 1998, my mother died. It was the day after Halloween and I was all hyper on sugar and candy. My mom had been sick for the past few months, so I couldn't...

    I still remember the day I've lost my self,

    where every wall were black for me with no way out. I thought that I would be happy, I thought I would have my heart saved, I thought in my future... But the only thing I've did was think, and everything happened so fast, till she cheated on me... It was last year in February...

    Remember when you told me you ******* CARED!

    !!!! One little kiss, a moment of bliss, then hours of deep regret One little smile and after a while a longing to forget One little heartache after another One little play after another that became broken and used and manipulated like a fool Remember the night ! The night you...

    Loss of Self

    About a year after my daddy died, I began doing things that compromised who I was. The things that defined who I was, what my morals were, and my ethics because I wanted from someone what I didn't have anymore. Before my father died, I was a little shy, grounded, outspoken, and...

    I used to have it all: Intelligence,

    creativity, hopes, dreams, true love, a connection to God-- or so I thought. Then one day out of the blue, I lost all that. I lost the ability to feel anything. I spent a long time feeling like a ghost, like I wasn't real. I began to feel things I never wanted to feel. I became...

    So I have been in inpatient,

    secure, and spent most of my teen years in care. But now I find myself a life time ago back into 'society', and I can't recognize anything. this last summer I exhausted every day and night searching for every reason or even theory as to 'the meaning of life', because I just...

    When I Was Younger

    Couple of times I let my emotions get the best of me and came close to killing a family member. In all fairness he put his hands on me first, but I do realize I was wrong. I am lucky I was held back from it.

    I was in 6th grade, in a relationship with my

    first boyfriend.(I’m in 10th grade now, since then have moved on) My best friend had told me that he was cutting himself- and I was upset that he didn’t tell me. So I asked him, and he said yes, that he loved me, but something just wasn’t right. At the time, I didn’t...

    It was the day I expected other people to be

    there for me. You only ever find yourself when you finally realize you don't need anyone else. I don't think I've ever got there yet. But I'm working on it. Close to a week alone with nobody but a dog and DVDs for company taught me a couple things.

    He was my polar opposite.

    We weren’t alike in any way. My friends fawned all over him and I really could have cared less. Who did this guy think he was? Sure he was beyond gorgeous but there wasn’t much substance beyond that. I guess my general oblivious behavior towards him made him want me. He...

    I don't know where I'm heading.

    I honestly don't know what I want at this point. I feel lost and empty inside and I don't know why .
