I haven’t genuinely prayed to God since I was in high school. I always thought that I could fend for myself. Lately I’ve been so disconnected with everyone, and I feel like He is trying to teach me something. These obstacles I’m currently facing are tough, and I am no where near overcoming them, but I have to keep working at it. I can’t give up on any of this, because it means giving up on myself. If I don’t believe in myself, it would be hard to convince others to do so. I just hope that I can make some sort of dent soon. I just want to be pointed in the right direction.
My whole life is just a massive cliche. I have to keep telling myself that in order to feel less lonely. I know that somewhere out in the world someone really is going through the same thing as me, and they know how I feel. I wonder how they are dealing with it. I’m not doing so well. I wish that I could let them know that I’m rooting for them. I hope they come out on top because they deserve to be happy. I’m struggling. I’ve never had the honour of coming in first place in anything.
I just want to win something. Just once. I want to know what it feels like to do everything right and have it all pay off. I want to be satisfied with myself. I guess I just want confirmation that I’m doing alright. It feels like no matter how far I reach, I can’t get a grasp onto anything stable.
I have been struggling for so long and have kept myself together, but lately I have been falling apart. And it shows. I am on the edge and have to decide where to go from here.
While I was growing up, I had hardly ever been told I was loved. I was always the root of the problem. Any time my parents were angry for some reason, it had always been my fault. I faced a lot of self-esteem issues my whole life. I was always picked on by my family for being fat. And that included extended family as well. I mean, my mom publicly called me names and laughed so loudly about how fat I was to everyone else, that they all thought it was ok for them to join in. To this day, I still hate any attention that I get. I hate it when people look at me. I can hardly make eye contact with people because I don’t want to see the way that they are looking at me. I used to cry a lot as a kid. Even when someone just looked at me. I would freak out and think that I did something wrong or that they were going to make fun of me.
The anxiety and depression I grew up with still lingers. I can’t shake it, and I’m not saying that it’s supposed to be that easy. But as hard as I try, I’m not going very far. I’m so afraid of saying the wrong things, or even just having people pay attention to me in general. I can’t let people in, because it take so much out of me to break down the walls that I have up. But once they leave, those walls will be back up in no time. I have become a master at the craft of building walls.
Sometimes you just need to hear someone else say it. It’s a struggle to convince yourself that it’s true. After trying so hard and repeating it to yourself, but still finding it hard to believe, it’s an exhausting fight.
I just need to hear you say it. I need to know for sure.
I’m not an avid gamer or really a gamer at all. I play video games occasionally, I watch gaming channels on YouTube, and sit through 8+ hours of streamers doing their thing on Twitch. But I’m not really a gamer. I do have a weird obsession with consoles though. I feel like I need all of them. Just in case. I currently have my eye on the Destiny: The Taken King PS4 bundle. It’s really pretty. I don’t even like PlayStation. But it’s really pretty!!
See for yourself:
But anyway, the only game I really play is Grand Theft Auto V. I did play through the Halo: Masterchief Collection on Easy, and I do plan on playing through the rest of the difficulties eventually, but I just don’t have time to sit down and play through games. I wish I did.
I’m really excited for Minecraft: Story Mode. I have yet to read up anything about it, but I’m still excited. Minecraft is usually what I play when I just need to get away from everything, hahaha. I hope that Story Mode is at least decent. I won’t let myself have high hopes because it is a game aimed at children after all. I initially want to play it on PC. I like Mincraft for PC much better than on the Xbox One. I don’t even use mods, but the freedom is just a lot more fun.
Speaking of PC’s, I really want a Razer Blade. I can’t justify the price tag because I would mostly just use it as an every day PC with occasional gaming. As I do with my PC now. I don’t think I’ve even opened Steam in a very long time.
I do really want to make playing video games a bigger hobby for me. I don’t really have any hobbies, I spend most of my free time sleeping. I do fun things sparingly, haha.
If you are reading this and dabble in the fantastic universe of video games, what Xbox One game(s) would you suggest I immerse myself into? Also, what gaming accessories should I invest in? I’m talking headphones, mics, keyboards, mice, etc. I’ll take any suggestions, don’t be shy!
I don’t want to be anywhere right now. I used to go to work to escape from my toxic home life, because work felt like home to me. But work has become a toxic environment as well. As of right now, I feel like I’m in limbo. I don’t really feel at home anywhere.
I don’t know what to do at this point. I am completely lost, wandering in the dark.
