    Illusions Are Better Than Real Life

    Often I can't sleep at night, and then I imagine being someone else, just to fall asleep, and every time I end up having so much fun, in my own head. I imagine having the exact same life as I have now, except, I'm not me. For example, instead of being me, I'm a boy instead of a...

    Feel Bad Right Now

    Why do people insult me? Even at this website, I have gotten bad responses by some and it always makes me feel bad. People tell me I made stupid mistakes or just criticize me (directly or indirectly). Whenever this happens, I am always tempted to give up and quit.

    People Tell Me How Wonderful I Am, But I Don't See It

    Hello all. I can remember a sweet feeling of relief when I finally graduated high school. Now I know everyone feels that way. I just couldn't wait to go to my local community college and study what I wanted to study. Yet at about the time I started college I was also working a...

    Feeling Hopeless

    Life has dealt me some hard blows. I see people around me far better off and wish I could be someone else. It seems at times that no matter what I do, it just ends up being short. I feel looked down upon being who I am and just wanting to give up.

    There is one girl in particular

    who I wish I was. Her name is Alex Johnson. She sort of has a personality just like mine, very sweet and soft spoken, open-minded and creative, except she's more outgoing, and a LOT prettier. She is gorgeous in fact. Gosh, I am extremely jealous of her because I wish I had her...

    Sometimes I wish I was someone else.

    I'll get an urge to be a completely different person. I really should love me for me, but I really hate me sometimes. My emotions get the better of me and it's so hard right now. I don't know how to feel or what to do!

    Just a Darn Minute!

    If I was someone else, do I get to choose? And if I chose and a car or something kills me in an instant, was that a good choice? Would I recognize myself in the mirror? Would I have to lose weight to get into the pants I had on when I switched? What happens to the person who had...
