    I've felt at times like this is the anthem to

    my life whenever my depression tries to get the best of me. It's amazing how something so sad and confusing could be expressed with such beautiful and relatable words: Ain't no use in calling up your friends Ain't no use in hiding in your bed And ain't no use in standing on...

    Hi. I am Steph and I am new to this website. I am not sure what kind of story I should share that won't bore everyone to death. Well, I do feel misunderstood by almost everyone around me--- my family and friends, my lover, my co-workers, and even just random people I don't even...

    It Pains A Lot

    I have lived a very good life where people love me. But, now most of them hate me with the rumours and lies they heard. Most of them, dont even know me in my school and they hate me without knowing who I really am. I want people to love me by knowing me entirely. If they hate me...

    Do You Understand?

    Even around people I seem to have things in common with, I still feel like the oddball out. I don't ever feel like anyone just "gets" me. It's probably mostly my fault for being shy. Or because I don't truly understand my own self. But it gets lonely when you're the...
