I Want to Stop Feeling

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 105 People

    Stop...

    Can't I be apathetic for ever? I don't want to feel anymore. I don't want to get hurt. I don't want to be involved with others. I don't want to care anymore. I just want to stop feeling. I want to live my life and never think about other people.

    I recently had to make a major decision,

    and now I'm dealing with consequences that tear at my insides. Picking between your future, job, schoolwork, versus trying to hold on to a relationship that's falling apart because of the other events in your life make it hard to see each other. Even though I made the decision...

    Good Idea

    I think if I stop feeling, I might start thinking a bit more! and I need to think, specially right now that everything has become so complected.

    To wake up and feel the se feelings in my head

    is nothing short of being prison. How can someone wake up and feel the way I do every second of the day. How do I cope? I don't time just keep ticking
