Deep depression

Since the last story I wrote I have went back into a state of depression. I have been here once before but this time is different. Instead of feeling sadness all the time I feel anger. I prefer to be alone but when i'm not I get mad and snap easily. I know what started it back up but I don't understand why I am so angry. Let me tell you everything that has happened recently. My step dad was caught cheating on my mom.. again. They finally split up and life was getting good. Then she started sneaking around with him and eventually told me she wanted to get back with him. I just turned 18 and this set me off. I left walking so I could calm down and not snap on her. She followed me in the truck and cussed me out telling me to get in.... [Read More]

Monumental mistake

TRUE LOVE EXISTS AND CAN BE VERY HARD TO FIND MORE THAN ONCE (A story of true love thrown away and the haunting life it caused me) Life goes by in a heartbeat, and decisions you make can haunt you for the rest of your life. This is the true story of how I found the love of my life, that God intended for me to be with the rest of my life, but my personal circumstances led me to make a decision that has haunted me my whole life. It’s my hope that someone might read this and keep from making the same mistake that I did. First let me tell you a bit about myself…I am now fifty eight years old, having grown up in a military family. For most of my childhood, I never lived in any one place more than about 6 months. We moved to... [Read More]

A State Away

*This is not a true story but I hope you enjoy* Josh enjoyed talking to people online and never really had complications with it. He rarely ran into creeps that everyone seems to warn us about. Everyday at school he has a story to share about someone he met. It was his hobby and we didn't judge. One morning at school he was sitting quietly, not sad, depressed, or mad.. just quiet. I sat next to him and asked him if he had a new story to share. He looked at me and smiled. Josh told us he met a girl our age online and she was only a few hours away. Obviously we warned him she might be fake and be careful. A few months passed and she was all he talked about. No one new, just her. Her name was Vanessa and he had gotten some pictures from...

A story of a broken girl

Jessica

It started at a young age when she knew something was wrong with her. It was hard in the beginning the way he looked at her the way he touched her.Everything seemed to fade into black as she tasted the salty tears that fell from her eyes.She was scared at first that first time changed her. It's like living in a dark whole in your mind you don't want to be you anymore you want to hide in the tears that fall from your eyes you want to run but there's never a place to hide. So you sit there and fade into the eyes of the monster as he takes your screams as a invite to invaid your soul. Your cries go unheard your words go unspoken as you lay and watch every hope and dream go out the room. You look in the mirror at this broken girl... [Read More]

Broken Dreams

On the new Petition by Henry Walsh. I was one of the first 40 signatures, I advertised this petition on all social media I could from Facebook to Gab and YouTube to Twitter. Etc. I was surprised that while of course fans are divided on the Disney take of star wars, never did I think I would have my life threatened over the franchise. Henry Walsh also has been threatened, that people would hack his email, that they would attack him. I have been told I would suffer if I kept going through with this petition and kept posting it. In 1977 George Lucas strived to make a movie that nobody wanted to be a part of, it was difficult and he was told to change it and put all his money and time into it. He created history and made a huge change to cinema everywhere and the future... [Read More]

Voicemails

I smiled down at the small black box sitting on our kitchen counter. I picked it up, cradling it in my hands as I gently opened it, looking down at the shining silver and sparkling diamonds of Sara’s engagement ring. Still gazing down at it, I reached over to grab my phone. Pushing the on button, I scrolled through my apps until I came to my voicemail. I clicked on the 6th recording down and pressed play. I smiled softly as the light, happy sound of Sara’s voice came through the tiny speaker. “Landon…just a second...I’m just...hang on a moment.” There was the sound of a brief scuffle, some shuffling fabric, and a bit of heavy breathing, then Sara’s voice came back. “Sorry about that, I was trying to get my suitcase out of the trunk of the taxi. I just wanted to call you one more time before I’m... [Read More]

My Love Story, Loved then Betrayed.

Phase I: The story started at the year 2013 November. I was in 8th standard, Like every student I was having a dream. But tragedy knocks the door without any early notice. A girl of my junior batch was having a crush on me, she was so curious, unfamiliar that she used to write love letters to me, cute her hands, write letters with her blood and send me. All I could do was make her understand that this is attraction not love. But her friends and mine forced me to love her, we all know that at certain age we get scared of some freak tales, similarly I was scared. I thought if she kills herself then I'll be responsible for this, and eventually I accepted her proposal. I was in a forceful relationship, a commitment that I never wanted. Our relationship was fine, good and all fine for... [Read More]

A dog's life

So I have been asked for more stories and new ones. Before I start this one I have to let you know that unlike the rest of my stories this one won't be a real one. I couldn't think of anything I am comfortable sharing at this point in time. So again *this is a made up story (obviously)* but I still hope you enjoy it. I'm brought into this world, just a tiny little thing, with a few brothers and sisters by my side. They are small too. My mother is kissing me and and my brothers/sisters. A few weeks go by and I get bigger. I am starting to attempt a few steps. I still stumble around because I am so young. A few weeks go by and a family walks in and starts looking at my family. They pick a few of my brothers and sisters and... [Read More]

I’m a survivor of depression - I’ve just come out of what I call a dark tunnel - so why did my depression start????? Well let me rewind my life........I grew up with my mum, dad and younger sister plus a really close family who were nan, grandad, aunties, uncles and cousins, we spent lots of time at my grandparents house, it was like a base for the whole family.

You're not in love with me

Minera Parker

Dear T, You promised me a lot of things. Your words gave me the confidence I never had. For the first time I was content in my life.. You told me everything I wanted to hear. But I can see it in your eyes.. You're not in love with me. I see the way you look at her.. Your smile seems so much brighter. The spark in your eyes were brighter. I've never seen you that happy before. I see the way she looks at you too. She seems happier. But the problem between you two is just me. You think you're in love with me. But please don't fool yourself and me. We both know that it's not me that you want. It's hurting me each day to see you with her. You told me I meant the most to you. You said I would look perfect if I... [Read More]
