    It Would Seem Mine Can Take Quite a Lot...

    ... since it hasn't exploded yet. There are things you're just sure you will never survive when they're still nothing but hypothetical. But it's important to see the difference between hypothesis and reality. It's even more important to realize that there is always someone whose...

    What Is Love?

     Many people think I am to young (14) to know what love is. But, I believe everyone has a different opinion on what love is.  I don't think I will ever know intil I find it. I am growing up with divorced parents, a half brother 3 months younger than my youngest...

    Really? Seriously?

    I absolutely cannot take anything else. Why is it that when I'm trying to be happy, and maybe almost succeeding, that life piles it on? Over the past three weeks there has been so much negativity and drama that it's almost unbearable. It's easy to say, oh, don't think about...

    well.. you cant break something that's already

    broken. just like you cant fix something that's broken and have it back to normal. if the heart was going to explode it would have already. but instead it broke slowly. now it's just gonna shatter.

    Heart Is Broken But Don't Seem To Care.....

    Does that even make sense? I just block my life out half the time. I know that if I fully acknowlege what my life is like I will end up going properly insane. I feel I am too old and yet too young to face some of the issues I am facing. I am heartbroken that my life has ended up...
