    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.

    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've been reading through quite a few of the

    mentally ill topics and I can't help but assume the worst when I see the posts from people who offered invaluable advice from their personal experience but haven't logged in for like 3 months to a year or 2. I hope they're doing well and I'm just being negative.

    I hate when you develop friendships with people

    who are genuinely kind and have so much to offer, but then that one fateful day they leave you. And then you're stuck wondering if they're okay or if they left you for good.

    About how you may be happy with somebody else,

    how you may not be apart of me in the future, how you'll fall in love with someone else, and how you'll not be my person anymore.

    I have been thinking.

    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.

    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..

    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...
