    Struggling to find a reason to live.

    I have always loved dancing. It’s as if I feel free when I dance. I started dancing when I was a kid and continued until I was in high school and up to my early college years. I joined competitions locally and I was happy whether I win or lose. As much as I love dancing, I had to stop. I got...

    I watched 13 Reasons Why

    So I watched 13 Reasons Why this week and it struck a nerve with me on many levels. I understand what the main character was going through. This topic has spoilers for both the show and suicide and self harm. I rarely talk about what happened in high school especially during senior year and...

    Freaking out after car accident

    Today I was in a car accident. My mom and I are ok thankfully. But I'm so worried about the insurance companies and everything that comes with it. It was her fault, she must have ran a red light but at the scene she told her dad it was my fault. I'm freaking out so bad. What if they believe her...

    I was in a car accident

    I was in a car accident last night. The car completely flipped over and I had to climb out the back. Police said I'm lucky to be alive but it doesn't feel that way. I wish I'd died there and then. It would've been an easy way out. I've been self harming more and more recently and I just don't...

    7 Reasons Why Narcissists Love People Pleasers

    1.The strong attraction between narcissists and people pleasers is no accident. There is a magnetic pull between the two that is very difficult to break because each is meeting a deep need of the other. This is not the fault of one over the other. Rather, it is an unhealthy union that breeds...

    I hear a voice in my mind.

    I think it's mine. I think I hear a voice, therefore it has to be mine. Once in a while I hear my name, but it sounds distant. When I think a voice which sounds like mine and talks, it repeats the same words I speak one in my mind and one from my mouth. I had a accident and fell on my head, ever...
