I Think Life Is Like a Roller Coaster

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 460 People

    Riding the ups and downs can be exciting,

    scary, exhausting... It seems that the older I get, the rougher the ride. My wisdom from my experiences leads me to act more controlled and deliberate, while my feelings are more passionate and vulnerable. I'm not sure if this is how things are supposed to be, yet I feel that...

    Hold On To Your Guts And Enjoy The Ride!

    Yeah, life is very much a roller coaster...and a remarkably wild one at that.  Yeah, there's times you're gonna be scared out of your shoes.But it's still a hell of a ride!

    I Do

    But I think I started from center of the ground and I have seen mostly ups! I am looking forward to some down hill tracks.

    I went to six flags New England

    and I loved it, it is one of my favourite memories. Life is exactly like a roller coaster sometimes you'll fly forwards other times you'll fly back, you will even go up and Down just like in life.

    The Rush

    Life is a roller coaster. It is the greatest high and the lowest low that a person can experience. While it can scare the **** out of you , just know that you are fastened in and won't fall off. Raise your hands into the sky and embrace the rush. This rush is what develops...

    Up And Down

    For pretty much most of my life I have been living on a roller coaster. Up and down. It's awesome for awhile and then it's back down. Sometimes it even happens like a roller coaster where it's slow and takes for ever to get to the top ( getting back on ones feet) and then there...

    Life=rollercoaster

    Rollercoasters can go up, down, turn in different dirrections, go upsidedown and (at little times) can be a straight path. NO one can ever go on one that is just straight. During the ride there must be some turns or sudden drops that you never knew was coming. But we all get...

    I Do Get Afraid

    There are times I want to get on to a roller coaster, scream my way thru till the end.  There are times I kept my silence and don't even realised the ride has ended... Today I felt like screaming...  and I don't want his sympathy. I don't want him to...

    It Really Can Make One Scream And Cry At Times :)

    Life really can be like a roller coaster, and I think for most it is...ups sometimes and goes along fine, then suddenly it goes down into that loop, your hair flying, eyes wide open, your screaming, with elation, or fear or anger or delight, or the face of the uncertainty as you...

    I'm Too Old For a Very Long Ride

    It's no fun and makes a person sick. Roller coaster ride for sure. Lasting very long and there's little control.   Just when you're sure the ride has slowed down, evened out and looking good.  WHEEEEEEE here  we go. Fasten up..better yet, don't bother to...

    I Wish Roller Coasters In Life Had Brakes

    It seem when the ups, downs and curves come, the speed is too great to know what happened until after it has happened. I wish there were brakes to slow down those moments so we could adjust to the down hill rides.

    Ups and Downs

    If your wanted me to describe my life with two words, I would say "eventful" and "traumatized" even though I am this young. It's like a roller coaster-up and down. Only this roller coaster has more downs than ups. Every time I feel down, I worry whether I...
