    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...

    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.

    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...
