Does Anything I Do Really Make A Difference In The Long Run? 202 People

    Never Ending Downward Spiral

    I'm done with everything, i've tried every method I know so far to prevent myself from further going down the wrong path, and so far all of my attempts have been constantly derailed by a force greater than myself...I'm an alcoholic, a failure in life, and to put it BLUNTLY a lost...

    I Think Im Too Far Gone.

    My mind has changed and warped to adapt to sadness, and as that sadness increases, my mind warps still further, around the bends it has already formed, it has tangled into itself, and keeps the sadness going. I dont understand myself anymore, i dont know what im thinking or...

    I Wonder If I'll Ever Get It Right.

    Too Fast

    Mom always told me the world moves too fast for me . I'm not dumb, in fact, I'm quite the opposite. People tell me I am brilliant. My IQ is off the charts, but none of this explains why I am sitting in a strange apartment that I now call home. None of this explains why I am...

    I Wonder This A Lot...

    I used to get told that I'm a "lost cause". But, I was over-emotional and heavily into drugs back then. Now, I'm over 90% percent of those issues, but I still can't function in society. I can't stay in college and can't get a real job. So, I shrug my shoulders and hope I have...
