    I hate it when this happens.

    Because then, there's no way out until I knock out.

    And now the sun is cresting the mountains,

    the alarm is going off, daylight is saturating the curtains and I've got to get up. Night after night this goes on. I don't think I've slept two hours this month. I just can't turn off my brain. Damn it.

    I haven't slept much at all.

    All I can think is how can a person mean so little to another? You know you'd take a bullet for them but they would not even take a nerf dart for you

    Yr relationship status should not change the

    love you had inside. The love, the light, the longing should always be there. You owned them, not the other way around..

    I am a strong person.

    But every once in a while I would like someone to hold my hand and tell me things are going to be OK.

    About how you can see things.

    Try to understand things that are not prepared to be understood. Try to organize your emotions keeping them in check to be sure you don't say something stupid and get hurt. Try to figure out how not to mistreat out of fear. Try to manage that life may have meant something a few...

    There are times I have felt myself quite lost.

    I'm not doing what I want to be doing. Thoughts strangle my sleep and I lie awake thinking. There are so many things to ponder, so many things to process and survive.

    Every night I close my eyes

    and recall what I did during the day and I am mostly not proud of what I did. I looked so stupid,immature .reckless. It's feel like that's not the real me. I just can't sleep and keep thinking what should I've done instead.

    I thought that said "I've been up all night

    drinking" and I don't feel like finding such a group since I'm already here. But yeah... I'm drunk as a skunk. A skunk that has been up all night drinking.

    I'm up thinking about things every single night.

    .. For hours... My mind just goes on and on... From things I'm worried about, to the things I'm happy about, to the things o fear, to the things I wonder about, to the things that are totally random and weird... Fantasies... Yeah..

    This is one such experience

    which can completely leave you exhausted. Been through this several times. I came out with one conclusion that thinking at night doesn't help at all. Coz your mind is actually not thinking but just wandering from one thought to another with too many what if questions which have...

    About My Existence

    I am not sure I believe in it.  How can I prove I exist?  There is no possible way of proving it. No true scientific way. I could just be imagined, you could be imagined

    Why are people so cruel?

    People are born loving then taught to be hateful and resentful. I don't understand why brothers can love each other one minute and in the next - stab each other in the back. I don't understand why this world is the way it is and I don't understand why we aren't working harder to...

    I've been thinking that the human race will

    become more and more selfish as the population increases. Perhaps as though it is a natural evolutionary process for survival. I'm actually quite blown away by just how many humans are on earth. It keeps me up.

    When I was 20, I did a criminal act

    and it kept me from sleep all night. I was working with an other student at McDonald's. We found someone's purse. It contained cash and credit card. I suggested him we split the money. He said yes but said further he would try using the credit card. This was like my first...
