    You know that feeling

    Like Now...

    If you were to ask me how I am feeling, and I couldn't use the word numb, I would have to say lost, its the best way to explain how I am feeling right now....I feel like I am lost in the woods, walking around, looking for a way out, scared, and unaware of what is going on around...

    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

    But then I remember to tell myself: "Everything

    I desire is within me." And I know that the answers will come when it's the right time.

    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.

    I felt overwhelmed today.

    So I just stopped what I was doing and closed my eyes. All I heard was the chaos going on around me. The arguments, the loud discussions... Noise, just fricking noise... I wish I could just float away, to a place where I can feel safe and protected. Sanctuary. I am...

    Sometimes I have moments of lucidity,

    where I feel completely comfortable in my own skin. I feel confident. I walk with purpose. But then there are times that a negative thought gets its claws in me, and just drags me down into an abyss. Today that thought was, "What's wrong with me?" It sucked me into a dark...
