    The Confession of A Weary Soul

    Hello, have written my own confession on how I am struggling in my own depression... Words are not enough to describe, to undressed, to unmask of what I am going through. Words are at loss to describe the excruciating pains, the agony of the torture. If you ask me on how to describe my...

    Do you become Speechless?

    How do I describe this? Am I the only one who looses the ability to talk? I don't mean I turn mute, I can still talk, but my brain just doesn't seem to want to.. I'm asked questions, and I hear, and I consider them- albeit slowly. But it's like I can't be bothered, or I don't think it's...

    I know I'm Not Normal But What Is Wrong With Me?

    Any Meditation techniques you'd like to describe?
