    I Can't Be Happy No Matter What

    Whatever I do I can't be happy. I can be distracted, but once alone I have tears in my eyes and feel a massive sadness and hurt over me. I don't really know why, I think it might be because I'm really lonely. I have some friends and family, but I don't think it's enough. I'm only...

    A choice I've made that I've been trying to

    fight for all my life pretty much wasn't supposed to happen. And my companion abandons me every turn because I am the mistake that has been made. I just want to love and live life happy! But it's being held back from me.... Any suggestions? (A bullet sounds pretty nice)

    As happy as I am most of the time there are

    just a few things I wish I could fix. Like for example my inability to let things from the past go, mainly because I tend to hold a grudge against particular people for a long time. But you would pretty much feel the same way as me if you were constant trolled and abused...

    'I Wish I Could Be Happy'

    I wish I could be happy, and be the same person I was last year. I wish i could get up with a smile on my face and be friendly, chatty and confident and have genuine excitement for the day ahead of me even though I was just going to school. I wish my grades were as good as they...

    Struggling With My Own Self..

    I usually don't enjoy writing. But at this moment I just feel so down. I don't know where else to let it out. I'm so lost.. I'm just an ordinary human.. I'm not proud of myself at all. I feel I have just wasted whole life achieving nothing. This is nothing in particular which I...

    I Wish...

    I am sort of back together with my ex, she says she loves me but i don't believe her. Or maybe its that she doesn't love me the way i want her to. I want to be in a relationship with her, but not if she isn't really committed to it. She broke up with me about a month ago, leaving...

    All I want is just to be happy.

    I just want to go one day where I can be happy all day long. I'm always either angry or sad. Most of the time the things I get frustrated over, are small things and my frustration increases and increases until I cry out of anger. Other times I'm just really down and don't feel...

    Maybe This Was A Mistake

    I'm 20. I've been in college for 3 years and every year there seems to be some huge drama. This year's the worst. People are mean to me. All the time. They call me stupid and are rude. It may not seem like a big deal, but when I hear this practically everyday from people I...
