    Now

    I love hugs, both giving and receiving.  But after the end of my day yesterday, definitely needed a hug.

    I am 14 years old, my life ahead of me my past

    behind me. I wish I could say that without lying. Honestly, I am a 14 year old suicidal, a picture of sadness painted with blood on an easel of depression. I joined this website roughly an hour ago, and have only posted on two experiences: I Wish I Was Never Born, and I Wish I...

    Its So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday..........................

    I still don't want this divorce. But if it is the only way to make you happy, then i must give it to you. As I look over the possessions that we have, i feel sorrow, not for losing or giving up these possessions but the memory behind them. I have not only lost you, but my...

    I Just Feel Icky

    You know that feeling that just lingers and will not go away when you are all by yourself. You long for the touch of another human being to be there and just to give you a little comfort. A hug is all it would take to make me feel better about life right now.
