    Sometimes

    Sometimes life becomes so unbearable that you can't barely keep going and want to give it all up.   Despair takes over and whisper in your ear that life is meaningless and it is not worth the effort but I must not pay attention to it because I know where that path leads.

    Realized that I won't reach the goal I've been

    killing myself for..to be young and successful. I'll be 23 next year. I've failed. I've been rushing myself through life..high school..college. My identity was built around my hunger to reach that goal. I don't know who I am anymore.

    When life gives you lemons,

    you're supposed to make lemonade. When life gives me lemons, I feel like I don't know what to do with them.

    Why do every person I care about always leave

    me...I've only had 1 real relationship in my life before. The very first one last almost 3 years. We broke up after I moved back home, but after we broke up I've been having bad luck in the romance department ever since. Any sort of romantic relationship I attempt to have with...

    I keep on asking myself what did I do wrong?

    what did I do to deserve like this? Am I really a bad person to feel and experience all of this? How about those really bad people out there who commit serious mistakes? Why it looks like they are having a good life? a long and good life...

    I feel I'm disorganized

    and careless. I also lack confidence and overthink too much. I can't commit to anything fully, and I often get told I don't pay attention. I often question myself on why it's gotten so hard to pay attention. My head is always somewhere else. When people are talking it's like...

    Chase. Chase for the remaining seconds,

    make the minutes last longer, turn hours into decades and days into forever. How to do that? I don't know. Chasing the years, counting the ways. It's crazy because I still wish to make time fast rather than to slow down because it feels like nothing. If I could go back I'll do...

    Pain

    I don't know how to change the way I am. I guess you can only be the person you are. I dream constantly about being another person. I don't want to be me. The hurting, the pain. Afraid of the world and other people. It i so painful I would rather die. But I have to live and I don...

    I'm back to wonder again what's the point of it

    all. We spend all our days working for money and our nights just finding ways to pass the time. Spend time with people who mean nothing. Maybe a party or two. We get talked into doing things we regret the next day. The pressure we feel just being young and a female. Expected to...

    Every Day Is the Same Thing

    I wake up hoping to meet someone fantastic on the internet. Because there's nobody in real life around me either, so I gave up on that a long time ago. So now, I'm giving up on the internet too. Giving up on finding true friends. Giving up on finding love. Giving up because I'm...

    I am sick. I have a neurological disorder

    which causes agonizing, crippling pain the majority of my waking hours (and destroys my sleeping hours, as well.) Because it's also an auto-immune disease, it makes me even sicker. It won't kill me, but it's progressive and will only get worse. It's not fatal, except that it's...

    I had so much anxiety.

    And I didn't move. I should've moved. I could feel my heart pumping. My mind was racing. I, my soul, imploded and then I exploded. My thoughts flew everywhere. How many people did they hit? Just 1 casualty (broken friendship) so far. I am so sorry.
