So I've been reading up on Buddhism today. Sometimes I wonder if my lack of religion has impacted on me being so unhappy. I often struggle with questions like: what's the point of this life? And I wonder if I need to look for some kind of purpose in life in order for me to be happier. I really like what I've read so far on Buddhism, so this is definitely something I want to explore further and hopefully live by some of the principles. What are others thoughts on religion or beliefs and what effect it has on our happiness?

Ok, I just really hate humans. I've said it plenty of times before but I just want to say it again. What's sparking this post is sexual harassment. I have numerous friends that were sexually harassed and whenever I hear that it happened to someone, it just makes me hate humanity so much. There are plenty of other reasons for misanthropy but this one just triggers me right now. Message to all humans: Don't be selfish and care about everybody else! GOT IT?!?! #depression#depressed#misanthropy#humanity#people
, I have gotten to know so many people so well and though their actions and problems seem like a bit too much I still never leave. There is no reason to. Clearly something is wrong, so what would be smart about just leaving them. So they can add another problem onto their plate? No. I know you don't know me completely well but I'm not one to come along then just leave. I know exactly how you feel. So many people have given up on me at some point and just left and if anything it's fucked me up more. Eventually you just get used to it and there's nothing you can do. I get it, you have problems probably bigger than any other kid that I'd run into our age but it's o k. I get it. I may not be able to help every time but I will still be here. Back when we first started talking I already knew there were some things up...I would hear little things all around me. If I didn't want to get involved then I would've stayed away, but I didn't. I'm here now, and I can tell you , I will still be here further down the road. 🌹🌹🌹 I've never tried so hard for someone to trust me. I really do care, but he just doesn't believe me when I tell him all these things. Guess that's what a broken heart does to you.

so i thought i’d give a little insight into who i am.
i was always a super fit kid. from age 4 i played competitive soccer and always enjoyed new things! i swam on sundays and went for bike rides with my parents on the weekend. i never had an issue with food except for the fact that i loved it. i loved bread and cakes and cookies, i loved butter and pasta and avocados, and i couldnt last a day without fruit (especially apples). around summer of 9th-10th grade i became extremely aware of my body. i realized i wasn’t as tiny as i used to be (WHICH IS NORMAL!! VERY NORMAL FOR A TEENAGE GIRL!!) and so i decided to start working out more! this started as a healthy choice. all i wanted to do was get my body moving through running and minor weightlifting. i paid no attention to the food i was eating until around september/october when i began to focus on my nutrition. i wasnt seeing the results i wanted and so i just stopped eating so much. i began skipping lunch and restricting breakfast + supper. i never had any sugar or candy or chips. all of the things i loved had become the things i despised. i was still playing soccer and excelling in school and so i believed nothing was wrong, until the day i b/p for the first time. (cont. in my next post)
It's a beautiful thing, healing. The way things slowly change over time, until one day everything is completely different, but so are you.

You surround yourself with people, people you love. People you care for. But that dark feeling of being alone, of being a failer is there. It haunts you. Like a cold breeze one summer night, it sticks to you. Sticks to your flesh, and sticks to the back of your mind. You spend so much time thinking about it. Pondering it. You forget. Forget what started it, forget how to fix it. Forget how to get better. And because you forgot, you now have a six letter word stamped on your head for the world to see. Failer. Failer. The only word you can describe yourself as anymore. You shower and write on the mirror. You try and still hear it ringing like a thousand church bells. Failer. A word now permanently running around your skull like a tournament. Only there is no finish line. No one to tell you the race is over, or run along side you. A never ending event, with only one participant. But even this participant is not here willingly. Yet you can not stop running, Failer.
F - A - I - L - E - R. Something your mother knew you as.
F - A - I - L - E - R. Something your family hated you for.
F - A - I - L - E - R. The word that haunts you so. The word sloshing around in your brain, like a half drunken bottle of water. Rolling. Rolling. Rolling. Never stopping. Never silent. Like chimes it rings, high, loud and falsely beautiful. Ringing nothing but sweet lies promising relief, to only tear you down like nothing more then paper. That ever growing emotion of fear, permanently there as you're tossed aside like you much deserve. Failer. Failer. Failer. You were once a failer, now you've just...Failed. (#vent#edits#depression )
Chronic stress causes our bodies to breakdown. Children born into abuse, experience chronic stress their entire lives. Any kind of trauma causes chronic stress, but having it developed in your twenties is far different then a child at birth. Chronic stress depletes our bodies natural energy sources. If we eat a Standard American diet, depleted in nutrients our bodies become starving. When starving (nutrient levels, not body fat) our bodies develop things like anxiety, depression, mental deficits, low libido, obsessive thinking, eating disorders, autoimmune disorders, cardiovascular problems, blood pressure issues.... I could go on and on.... all caused by chronic stress plus a nutrient poor diet. .
So, in order to stop chronic stress from wrecking more havoc, you need to restore your bodies nutrient deficiencies. A diet rich in nutrients will help your body fight stress and supply your brain with much need relief. .
I cannot turn around or take back everything I missed while I was away
I need for you to believe
If it were up to me we'd live out every day the same
But I won't see you for days
Another life I'd always be there
Another night of barely breathing
But when the lights go out I'll be listening
Another life I'd never understand
Another night I'll give you all I can
I know I need you now more than I ever did
