    Sometimes...

    Sometimes I do feel lost. I do have sad days, when I realize that my anxiety disorder isn't getting any better... and that I am still stuck in the house, most days. That my therapist sucks and she won't help me in this. Well, to be fair, she doesn't know HOW to. She only knows...

    In The Familiar Yet Alien Wrld Around Me

    I feel like my goals do not exist in this lost world, like I am circling around and there is no sign to show me the way out, like all those trainings I had do not apply to this world, And I have to smile and look confident so I don't scare others

    I wonder why God put

    so much struggle in my life when I see others living the life I always wanted. I try to be a good man but it seems that I'm never good enough for one reason or another. If I didn't have my inner strength I'm not sure where I would be.
