    I want what anybody else wants.

    I want to be happy. I see people around me smiling, happy, and in love with their life. How do I get to that point? The reason for getting out of bed every morning. I feel like I'm wasting away. I'm living a life I no longer wish to live anymore. I want happiness and I'm scared...

    Such a dynamic statement.

    Simple, sure, but I doubt the achievement of it has been anything but simple. For anyone. How does one go about this then? When it's so ******* complicated to see the worth in each day. How?? I'm trying though. God knows I'm trying. The world dejects me to no end if I let it...

    I am a self destructor Any chance of happiness,

    I ruin. Anyone who loves me, I hurt. This isn't something I do on purpose, but I always set the wheels in motion. Then just watch it all burn. And I wonder why I'm depressed. Point is there's not just me to think of anymore... I have a person growing inside me and quiet...

    I had for so long thought it was gone forever,

    but am finally feeling happiness in my life once again. I have met someone with whom I can now officially express my feelings to after having them in for so long. Feelings of happiness have started to emerge that have been absent for so many years of my life.

    Mexico I think lying on the beach in Mexico

    I searched my ex on Facebook. The ex that destroyed me two years ago. The ex that I hated with every fiber of my being. The ex that if murder was legal, he would be the first on my list. The ex that caused me so much heartbreak without an explanation. I searched him and I...

    They say the people who exhibit the most

    kindness have experienced a lot of pain. The ones who act like the don't need love are the ones who need it more. The one's who take care of everyone else need care the most. And the people who smile may be the ones who cry when nobody is around.
