This really speaks to me and my existential beliefs. It’s partly how Camus talks. You must be the force that gives your life meaning. Don’t wait on others to give it meaning. Be your own meaning. Define who you want to be. I struggle with that as I’m
Busy week. Roll on Saturday for one day of recuperation before the busyness and hectic day in day out times starts over. Sure it will settle down soon but it feels never ending at the minute. Maybe need to take a step back and look at managing things

As men, we are cultured to see ourselves as strong, well in control of our emotions and never let things get us down. So,when we are going through a tough time and especially when its a tougher time than usual, we bottle it all up inside. When we do
I don't post selfies very often. I especially don't post selfies without makeup. I am a pale ginger with vitiligo making my eyebrow and eyelashes white. I also have psoriasis on my forehead that is one of my biggest insecurities. •

Welcome to my finsta. A little bit about me: I am so alone. I feel like I’m at the breaking point. I’m so depressed and I hate my body, and my friends are tired of my complaining. Every day I wish I wasn’t here, but there are reasons I have to stay.
My boss is an interesting cat... she won’t pick up my sick calls.

Es war echt ein Hammer geniales Konzert gewesen. Ich war ganz alleine und ich habe nichts von meinen Ängsten gespürt. Am Anfang ist es richtig ungewohnt, so da rum zustehen. Als die Musik dann anfing, war alles egal, ich habe mich richtig treiben las
Comunque credetemi, è difficilissimo ripartire dopo una sconfitta, è davvero qualcosa che va oltre ogni fottuta capacità umana. Molte volte mi son ritrovata nella posizione di dire a qualcuno "pensa a te stesso" e tante, anzi tantissime volte questo
