    Does anybody else get this:

    when I go into social situations I break down. I don't know when to get in the convo or when I say something there is an awkward silence right after. It's like I don't know how to connect like that with people, my sister always makes so much friends and I'm the total opposite...

    You still love him, there's nothing

    that can stop it. It never stops. It's killing you. Then you begin to kill you. The bad thoughts begin to arise and blood seeps from your wrists...it's the end but in your last moment it's him you still think of because really there's no one who you crave the love from than the...

    When I'm most depressed I think of this.

    . The sun has left and forgotten me/ It's dark, I cannot see/ Why does this rain pour down/ I'm gonna drown/ In a sea/ Of deep confusion/ Somebody told me, I don't know who/ Whenever you are sad and blue/ And you're feelin' all alone and left behind/ Just take a look...

    I seem to drive people away,

    I've been told also that I'm closed off, emotionally and generally just closed off. I don't see it though, this makes me feel like I'm not normal, like there's something wrong with me, all my life I feel like I can't fit in. My friend could easily make friends and keep them, I'm...

    I'm 26, I don't have a job,

    I still live at home, no real social life to speak of, my future looks bleak. By now, you're supposed to have it all. But I don't. I'm truly a success story(!)

    I know it sounds pretty pathetic,

    but I do. Everything is a struggle, everything is hard for me. Because of where I live, the simplest things become problems, I think 7 times before I decide to leave my room to get some water, I have to sit quietly and listen if someone's in the hall before I go to the bathroom...

    They say we can be who ever we want,

    but once I act like myself I'm questioned by every guy that knows me, they assume they see the true me but in reality I'm just trying to make myself stronger everyday in their eyes, but more passionate in my eyes

    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...

    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.

    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.

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

    I haven't made my dreams fly. I gave up on a lot of things. Maybe because I'm not strong. Maybe because it's not time yet. I know we all hold the key to our own happiness but how do we use it? Sometimes I feel it's too late for me. Then I see someone even older than me do...
