    Looking back when I was in my early twenties I

    laughed more often (even without alcohol), I always made a dull moment fun for me and friends. How did I lost that? How do I reclaim it back?

    I Feel Dead

    There are so many things out there to do, and so much life to live. I feel like I'm trapped in a box, a coffin if you will, with a window to the world outside.The people that put me in the coffin were my husband and children. I don't think they meant to, but they put me here...

    57% Joyless

    Being stuck in a trap of self-consciousness has cost me a lot in my life- stopped me from doing things I wanted to do, getting close to those I wanted to be closer to , and prevented me from being daring enough to drive my life where I really wanted it to go. Because I`ve never...

    Wow what a zing. My first shift in a fast food

    restaurant (world leader, no names). I'm a crew member, being trained on grills by a super positive, supportive trainer. And it's all done by countdown timer and sensible policies. I really like the controlled environment, and it's easy to leave work at work. The manager said...

    Do I Still Remember?

    I forgot. Having fun seems to be the most distant thing for me these days. It has been upheaval for me, emotionally. Those ancient wounds that buried so deep in the ocean of memories are once again seeking my attention. The slightest incident, words or events that don't seem to...

    Given Up

    No matter how much I try in the end I fail. I given up in 2 of my subjects at school. Given up on things that use to be fun. Most Importantely given up on trying to be happy and now I'm hiding behind a fake smile. The only thing I seem not to fail at.

    I Think I Will Always Want This

    On those days when life is just too much, when the spark is gone and when there is no way out, I will always dig down deep for this feeling.  To want this means that there is still hope.

    A Child

    The last time i honestly felt ALIVE was like 2nd or 3rd grade. Before children became really judgmental-before i became self concous. Before my mom got harsh...it was like my eyes weren't fully open yet-i didnt know what the world was about then. I was actually innocent.
