hello, i sort of did this on a whim. lately i get overwhelmed because i feel like i cant let my honest self be shown around my family, and all these walls come up all around me, and i hate how i cant feel ok to feel honest. its literally driving me crazy now. i don't know why i feel that way, i have experienced various types of trauma, via bullying/racism, past relationships . I'm sort of all over the place and i cant gather my mind to view down one avenue. i know I'm probably not going to kill/hurt myself however I'm really tired of resorting to that feeling of wanting to quit when i don't know how to go on. I'm in a massive identity crisis, and i think have been for awhile now. I'm in college but i feel way younger than i should. anyways yea i was feeling bad before bt then i filled out the interests section and i realized i like my interests/hobbies and my life, its just i feel like the real me has been hiding all this time and now I'm trying to let it out and it doesn't want to come out. because i think i became tired of being hurt by other people. yet the irony here is i want to connect bt cant. so connecting online may help. thanks

ps im in therapy, both individual and group, but like, i cant keep my composure long enough there to feel comfortable because i get to nervous and cant control it. i just bottle up so easily. when I'm alone i can get to a level that i feel sort of good and capable of being honest, but then i have to execute that to my family or peers and i just cant keep it going. i feel extremely self absorbed also I'm just missing a certain piece to this mess and cant pt my finger on it. if you're around twenty years old feel free and also any other ages entirely welcome of corse. its just that i haven't really hangout w anyone my age in a looong time. i stay home a lot unless its for therapy.

im also here to help/relate if i can. thanks

My blog is open to all, those whom are easily triggered avoid, it's a story about a girl and her life and how far she has come over the years. If you read it, I hope it inspires you to keep fighting and to NEVER give up!

When you can no longer think of a reason to continue, you must think of a reason to start over.

Welcome! I hope you make some great friends here.
What's wrong with feeling younger, then you are? That's a good thing! Don't live by the standards of this world, because they are just wrong. Be yourself.
I used to live to please others, until now. Now I am finally coming out of my shell, slowly.
It sometimes takes a while. So don't worry about it, just enjoy life.

I try my best to help, but that doesn't always mean I will be helpful.
