My Purpose

My Purpose

What is the meaning of life? Why are we cursed to forever walk the empty hallways of life? Lights of hope flickering over head. The twisted warped hallways that pass as perfectly pristine, because that is what I show people. What we all show people. To society we are perfect. Robots, running the same routine. But why? Why is it that society judges us when we wear the mask that is society?

Depression

Depression

I used to feel like running away and daydream of leaving everything and everyone behind. Not forever, just as long as it took for me to feel better. To be okay again. I thought that if I went somewhere new and different, that I’d be different, and by different, I mean feeling like my old self again. I felt unsettled, discontent. Like I was being pulled towards something but I couldn’t see what that something was. And that “not knowing” caused me anxiety, stress, feelings of depression and sadness.
