    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.

    I thought too much about something

    that isn't my problem and it led me to other thoughts about myself and it caused me to get so exhausted. Lately I've been thinking too much about school, my grades, my future, my partner, my best friend and myself. I keep worrying about things I shouldn't.

    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.

    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.

    because I miss him and I want to be in bed next to him; to cuddle with him, to sleep next to him. I will think about the memories and how happy I am with him. The negative part of thinking late at night is losing him and the effects that it would have on me. That's the last...

    I really hate sleeping alone.

    I feel so rejected when my boyfriend doesn't want to spend the night. He works night shift and I'm lucky if I get to see him more then once a week. So I don't understand why he won't spend the night with me and enjoy our little time together.
