    Miss Understood

    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...

    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...
