lol I experience a minor stressor and immediately completely shut down from stress bc im just that fuckin useless and give up too easily bc im afraid of pain im dumb

so im currently taking a creative writing class in college, and i guess it never occurred to me that some people aren't comfortable sharing their writing with others??? i guess because of kidpub i have become accustomed to having other people read and (constructively) criticize my writing.
anyway, taking this class has led me to realize that i am an attention whore when it comes to sharing my writing. i always want to share it. i always want feedback and reassurance.

Long story short: I'm feeling really empty n sad n not my crazy happy self lately n I mean I just wish the girl who I trusted so much (my ex bff) never existed so I wouldn't be sitting here feeling so alone.

hey, you're problems are just a valid and important as anyone's. Other people have problems does not diminish your problems. I don't know what happened between you and your friend but it sounds like it was rough. I can't offer much help, but I promise you'll feel better about this eventually. In the meantime, if you want to talk you can always reach me here; punkyhead.re@gmail.com

oh my gosh, I'm taking a high school/college creative writing class right now and I'm in the same boat, I'm in my comfort zone and maybe 3 other people are too, but the other 6 are very embarrassed
lol I do not live on bread alone but on every comment on my writing that comes from the mouth of my teachers and classmates

me: hey one of my friends just hung himself
my dad: you okay? yes? good. talk to faculty.
me: hey i want to shave my head
my dad: are you ok??? is this a cry for attention? a cry for help? don’t shave your head! are you alright? what’s going on? don’t shave your head!

there are moments that the words don't reach, indeed

I keep seeing your posts and wanting to send you love and sympathy but I don't know how, this awkward indirect confession's all I got. But I'm prayin for you and I hope things get better <3

exactly like i don’t care if it’s good or bad i just need to share and i need feedback!! i have around 25 people in my class. i wish it was smaller but alas, it is not. we were paired up tuesday and the i asked the guy i was with why he was taking this class and he was like “my friend dragged me into it” and i was like “ohh okay” and he threw the question back it me and i was like “bc i love it lol”
