    Work Hurts

    Yesterday, at my new job I ended up sending someone away from cash and he got hurt. I wasn't reprimanded much, and yet today it's all I can think about. How I failed, how stupid I was. How I'm worried about why I could do something so dumb. And it just makes me feel like a...

    I Do Want To Stop Feeling Sad

    The people and the reasons I am sad aren't worth it anymore. I wasted over 20 years of my life in pain I will not waste 20 more. I dont think about suicide or even getting back at them anymore, they are not worth it.

    I am sad but it's a pretty selfish reason.

    One of my good friends went to this pool party, and I knew the host really well. Except, no one really invited me and there's pictures everywhere on Instagram on how much they're having. I feel left out but i think it's kind of selfish of me to think that they ignored me. But I...

    Someday

    It comes and goes but not to the extreme that it did before I started taking 500 meds. Now I just take turns playing zombie and staying awake. I think we need some sadness though to balance us out. Crying is a great way to vent and good therapy as well. I want to be sad less but...
