    When I tried to commit suicide

    for like the millionth time I ended up in hospital. I was there for a long while and you are literally cut off from the world. I loved it. I really came out of my shell. I got so much better. Then as soon as I was released into society again nothing fitted anymore. I had become...

    Life: you work until you die.

    That's about it. You're "suppose to" go to college, you're suppose to get a degree, you're suppose to get married, you're suppose to have kids... All these suppose to's, but I don't want any of it. Why am I the only one that questions it all. I want something more. Most of all...

    Alright, the plan is in motion. This place that makes me miserable, this life that is so unfulfilling, these people that refuse to do anything but tell me I can't live the life I want...I'm leaving. No one, and nothing, can stop me. If you don't like it, so be it, I don't need...

    Not only I disagree with feminism,

    individualism, globalism, and all the - isms that rule in today's world, but I cannot accept a society where human relationships are not based on honor, honesty and generosity, but in sheer interest and profit.

    A lot of people my age (16) already party like

    animals and they drink. Some smoke. They have dated and had their first kiss. Some of them have even had their first time ( I think you know what I mean). I haven't done any of these things and sometimes I feel out of place. Someone help me please.

    Where Are We Heading?

    The society we live in is changing. Changing for worse. I'm afraid of '1984' coming. Coming soon. Maybe not in my lifetime, maybe not my children's, but soon, much too soon. Because, what are we doing to avoid this? We do NOTHING. We do nothing to oppose the government, we do...

    But then I realize that reality is only a

    concept made up by ourselves as a blockade to the treasure that is the enjoyment of life. A concept between the knowledge of logic and nonsense itself.

    Money doesn't motivate me.

    Sex without emotions isn't for me. The media is childish to me. I'd rather travel and see nature than watch any movie or show ever made.

    I can't communicate openly with people

    because I'm too shy. I get the feeling people think I'm a ***** because I don't really like to talk, and when I try to be outgoing I say the most inappropriate things! This is why I've never had a boyfriend and probably never will. I wish I could be a normal person.

    Does it not sound like all beings,

    whether animals or humans are plagued by loneliness. I think they are, isn't it common for most of us to be in company of many yet feel like an outcast. Like mindedness, common interests does that ring a bell. Of course we humans follow the quite natural, social, animal...

    Never, I feel like an outcast,

    I always have, always will. I've always felt like the loner even when I looked 'normal'. I don't want to sound like I'm repeating myself constantly, but I don't think I'll ever feel like I belong. I should probably accept it.

    My Protective Nature Arouses This Instinct

    Yes, I do indeed sometimes feel like I do not belong in society.  I say this not out of self-pity - on the contrary - I say this out of a sense of avuncular protectiveness.  You see, I have visited society, and I know something about it.  For example, I...

    I often believe a couple makes 1+1 more

    than two, a family 1+1+1 more than three, a nation makes a number much higher than its population, but society makes not a number but a blotch.
