    I realize, that overall,

    you weren’t worth it. There were moments with you that made me really, really happy; but the majority of the time you shut me out. That’s why I swear I’ll try and get over you. We might have had something really great, but I guess we’ll never know. I’ll never forget...

    I haven't posted in months,

    because things have been great. Happy. But all good things must come to an end. At this point now, I'm just trying to figure out if the bad times are a passing normal phase in a happy life or if the good times are a passing phase in a miserable life. The only things I'm good...

    What makes you, you? What separates you,

    from your twin sibling? Who are you anyway. I'd be truly surprised if you could answer that. I mean, other than stating your name or a few details about your hobbies or kids. I think this is a question without an answer. Some may argue this and that, some may push this question...

    I Think A Lot As Well, Apparantly People Aren't Supposed To

    I suffer from a bit of social anxiety and I was speaking to a psychologist last week and she said I think too much. People are supposed to not think all the time apparantly but I can't stop thinking. Ever. I tried stopping thinking but then I think about stopping thinking...

    I Was Just Thinking . . .

    I found out a few months ago that not everyone thinks all of the time. I was like, what?!  Really?  I don't know if it was totally true, but I know I think all of the time.  I shared some of my thoughts with a trusted adult in my life, and she was puzzled as to...

    Constantly my mind races

    and wonders. I will be thinking of infinite things at once. To make it stop I smoke some pot and zone out on a racing game.

    Do you sometimes feel worn out of trying to

    prove yourself to everyone? I just simply can't be bothered to defend my case anymore. i don't know what am I trying to pro prove to other at this point. Whether it's my parents family or friends. I just feel so distant from the whole world..

    I wish people could just say how they feel like

    "hey I really don't like when you do that to me" or "hey I'm in love with you" or " hi I really miss you and I think about you all the time" without sounding desperate. Why can't everyone be painfully honest and just save people the trouble?

    Thinking About Everything

    Thinking maybe one of my past times that I enjoy and do a lot. Mostly, I'm alone and shy, and thinking is a way for me to entertain and reflect myself. I love thinking about everything and then asking questions inside my head. I think about the sky, the flying birds, the moon...

    Why is it that when I can't forget someone I'll

    try to look for them everywhere? Even though it's not what I wanted to but I wish it's that person and then I can't get it out of my head. As if everything is in patterns even if I know I'm lying to myself, this amuses me so much.

    how come when we were little, time passed by so slow, even when u were or not having fun. Now a days, time goes by so fast, u dont even realize it, we get older and older our minds open up more and more and time it self has become part of our own mind. But why?

    Just A Quick Thought

    Is the reason that people find it hard to be happy, that they see the past better then it actually was? The present worse than it is and the future less resolved than it will be?

    Never Give Up !!!

    If God doesn’t give you what you want, it isn’t what you need. When God takes something away from your grasp, He is not punishing you but merely emptying your hand to receive something better. There are some things in life that don’t go the way you want them to or the...
