No one will tell you about the limit They put on how long you can grieve No one will warn you when you’re winning How heavy a lost love can be They do not tell you about the friendships You’ll lose once the lights are dimmed down How humble you’ll feel about your past bliss Once the tables are turned around. — Growing Pains
You are born, go to school, and attend university in search of a husband. You get married – even if he is the worst man in the world – just so that others can’t say no one wants you. You have children, grow old, and spend the end of your days watching passersby from a chair on the sidewalk, pretending to know everything about life yet unable to silence the voice in your heart that says: “You could try something else”.
everything is more complicated than you think. You only see a tenth of what is true. There are a million little strings attached to every choice you make; you can destroy your life every time you choose. But maybe you won’t know for twenty years. And you’ll never ever trace it to its source. And you only get one chance to play it out. Just try and figure out your own divorce. And they say there is no fate, but there is: it’s what you create. Even though the world goes on for eons and eons, you are here for a fraction of a fraction of a second. Most of your time is spent being dead or not yet born. But while alive, you wait in vain, wasting years, for a phone call or a letter or a look from someone or something to make it all right. And it never comes or it seems to but doesn’t really. And so you spend your time in vague regret or vaguer hope for something good to come along. Something to make you feel connected, to make you feel whole, to make you feel loved.

What’s my religion? Drive fast and hope we don’t die. Love like fire and b.itch when we get burned. Sleep wherever we can as a result of not wanting to sleep at all. Cry. Often. Drink to make everyone else more interesting. Always smoke before dinner and sometimes afterward; reverse that for s.ex. There are no one-night stands; we just love each other for a few hours at a time. Try not to appear resentful, aim for reminiscent. Hope tomorrow is a better day...
“ Do not love half lovers Do not entertain half friends Do not indulge in works of the half talented Do not live half a life and do not die a half death If you choose silence, then be silent When you speak, do so until you are finished Do not silence yourself to say something And do not speak to be silent If you accept, then express it bluntly Do not mask it If you refuse then be clear about it for an ambiguous refusal is but a weak acceptance Do not accept half a solution Do not believe half truths Do not dream half a dream Do not fantasize about half hopes Half a drink will not quench your thirst Half a meal will not satiate your hunger Half the way will get you no where Half an idea will bear you no results Your other half is not the one you love It is you in another time yet in the same space It is you when you are not Half a life is a life you didn’t live, A word you have not said A smile you postponed A love you have not had A friendship you did not know To reach and not arrive Work and not work Attend only to be absent What makes you a stranger to them closest to you and they strangers to you The half is a mere moment of inability but you are able for you are not half a being You are a whole that exists to live a life not half a life. —KHALIL GIBRAN
I remember this was my second witty account I can't believe I made it in 2012, I had one at least a year before this one. i still didn't realise it was so long ago I used this website to vent and learn about feelings I used to feel like I was worthless and would never amount to anything or would have hurt myself and not get to experince a full life. I was 13. I'm turning 20 this year. I am surrounded by more love than I ever knew existed. I have so many hopes and ambitions for my future. I'm still filled with fear, but mostly anticipation. I hope young girls like me who use this site the way I did hold on and wait. I know it's tough. I send you all my love, becuase I have so much to give now and I want you to keep going because there is so much out there, as scary as that sounds. and it is all so worth living for and experiencing. I don't think I ever got to express what this website was for me for a few years My early adolescence was spent editing html codes and expressing myself here Thank you for listening
When you’re twenty-one, life is a roadmap. It’s only when you get to be twenty-five or so that you begin to suspect you’ve been looking at the map upside down, and not until you’re forty are you entirely sure. By the time you’re sixty, take it from me, you’re…lost. —Stephen King
