sky
i have to say that i like your title,it makes sense
Sara
I know exactly what your saying. I feel like you just said every thing that I've felt in my life. I also wanted to say that I dragged my self into a bottemless pit of depression and I thought that I would never escape. But one day I made a friend who opened my eyes and I saw the light. I saw just how happy I could be. Then I moved away from that friend and I got really sad again.Just as it started to get really bad I rembered that I don't need someone to understand me, but I need to understand myself. Well I have to go for now i hope that this will help you when your feeling blue.
