I wonder when my heart will stop breaking, or if that's even a reasonable expectation. When this first started about a week ago, I thought I was just crashing from my mania, but every day lately I have been waking feeling completely crushed. There seems to be such a weight on my chest. Maybe this is due to the feeling of my own disloyalty that I have been aware of in myself lately, or maybe it's something completely different. It doesn't feel good. It never does. It's sapping my strength and my optimism and my patience.

Some things I've been obsessing over lately are completely twisted and no, it isn't voluntary.

what am I doing? if i have doubts enough to ask that question, then I am not ready.
I am not ready. Dear God, I don't want to go through this again, but I am not ready.
To convince myself that I am would just be another avenue for resentment and bitterness.

I wrote that blurb in my journal years ago and I am experiencing that again. And no, I don't care to elaborate. Whatever you might think I am referring to, I assure you that you are incorrect.

I realize that relating this kind of despair might have some of you asking, "Hey, wait a minute. Aren't you a Christian? Don't you people preach hope?"

And yes, we do. And I do have hope---and faith that things will get better. Hope is why I can still get out of bed in the morning, and I credit God with the accomplishment of that great feat. I don't know. Maybe it's a gift, eh?

I'm normally very skeptical of anything "new age," but I found something that could explain the way that I've always been.

Do you believe in empaths? And I personally am not referring to anything paranormal or metaphysical. Just people who are exceptionally tuned into the world around them...bah. That's a horrible definition, but I'm not particularly articulate right now. All I know is that the way that I feel most of the time is not healthy...unless there is a reason for it. Unless...I don't know. Anyway, the idea popped into my head during my quiet time today, and I researched it, and so many of the traits fit me.

Here is a list of traits of Empaths. I'm not suggesting that I am one, I'm not even sure if I believe in them, but I identify with everything on this list, especially the bolded items. Laugh at me if you want to. I honestly don't give a poo.

~Empathy Character Traits~

~Feels emotions often and deeply~
~Keenly aware of other peoples feelings~
~Cannot easily release sad or upset feelings~
~Feels deeply for others suffering and pain~
~Prone to recurrent depression~
~Keenly aware of, and affected by beauty (art, music, nature)~
~Feel overwhelmed or depleted by too much stimuli
(large crowds, loud noises, hectic environments)~

~Startles easily~
~Abhors confusion~
~Very sensitive to bright lights~
~Notices subtle changes in the atmosphere~
~Needs to retreat within themselves to become focused~
~May have a tendency towards alcohol or drugs to escape at some time in life
from all the stimuli or confusion around them~
~Feels physical pain more than others~
~Has a strong affinity with animals.~
~Loves children and children love them~
~Often have premonition-type dreams~
~Prone to migraines and tense muscles;Also disease's like chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia.
~Often get involved with people who have a lot of problems~
(Thus leaving ourselves open to getting hurt deeply because of trying to help others)
~Feel that we have a "mission" in life to make others understand~
~Will often tolerate a lot more abuse than other people do, even though we are hurt deeply~
~Insensitive people tend to think that we are mentally ill or wacko~
~Often thought to be hypochondriacs by Dr.'s, because we are prone to sickness that comes from others~
(i.e. Test results may show nothing, but we are still sick nevertheless)

~Can feel physical or mental pain from long distances~
(Such as from people we are close to)
~Empaths usually work in a helping profession or are poets, musicians or artists~
~Tires easily and naps frequently~
~See through people into their souls and beyond their masks or games~
(A lot of people are afraid of us for this reason)
~Are often looked upon as being soft, stupid or an easy pushover~
~Usually have a great sense of humor~
~We are the best listeners on earth!~
~Very faithful as a friend~
~An acute sense of smell and hearing~

And yes, I do understand that many people on the planet feel like this. And maybe that's why I feel comfort in this.

I've been in a dessert frenzy lately. I've been baking cookies, dipping things in chocolate, and this isn't dessert, but I've been cooking for myself. Like good meals. I'm so weirded out by myself.

Put your music player on shuffle.
Press play for each question.
Use the song title as the answer to the question.

this is kind of creepy...Collapse )

I am so emotionally crippled it's ridiculous. Maybe it's the hours that I'm working, but I just don't care about what other people want right now. All I know is that I am working hard, and I need to keep working hard, because I have some pretty big bills to pay. I honestly don't care about anything but doing what I need to do, which is work and sleep. Some people are starting to be offended by my hours, but you know what? Screw them. I'm taking care of me. I'm not married, I don't have kids, I have nothing to stop me right now from getting my education and I want to take advantage of that.

If people are thinking i'm this difficult right now, I wonder how they're going to deal when I add school into everything.

Yesterday I put a deposit down for my own apartment. It's a studio, 500sq feet, but it's mine, and plenty big enough for me. Here's the Info if you want to look around. I really like the community.

I'm alos going back to school full-time in the fall. I'm paying for it myself, so it shouldn't fall through this time. I'm working my ass off so hopefully i won't be hurting for money. I want to get through the next couple of months and then save up all summer at the cheesecake factory so hopefully i won't have to work so hard through school. I feel really excited.

Honestly, are you surprised?

You scored as Ginny Weasley. You definitely share your mother's (Molly Weasley) fiery resolve and slowly but surely people are learning to respect you because of it.

I have been bawling off and on all day. I don't cry that often, and I don't normally cry without reason. But I have been just sobbing all day. Like audible shit. I got to work and someone said Hi to me and I friggin burst into tears. I literally spent the last hour crying my head off.

It's like I'm pushing every piece of sorrow I have ever felt out today.

I don't get it. I didn't cut though. Or smoke. And how I wanted to.

(ps..does anyone else find it semi-amusing that fridgebuzz is doing a "reunion" show? I mean, they were a great band...but "reunion?" Maybe it's just me.)

Gah. I miss "The Spirit Room."

My mom broke up with her boyfriend last night, and he called this morning. I wonder if she did it through email...

I went and saw Tristan Prettyman today. She's really, really good.

and as if i wasn't feeling generic enough, there's a 15 year old in Normal, IL named Aislinn. And her nickname is also Aisy.


So, the other day, I went to Starbucks and got a chai latte before work at the cheesecake factory. It was the worst chai latte i have ever had. seriously. my day was ruined for a while.

and then i felt ashamed for being so upset. some people are worrying about shelter and food, and i had a problem with my chai latte and my world fell apart?

I must REALLY be bipolar. Or ridiculous. Either way, that put things in perspective for me. I don't know what the point of this was, so sue me.
