How do I find something I'm passionate about?

I don't really have any hobbies. I spend a lot of time in school and studying, but that's not really a passions. I'm just in college to get a degree so I can get a job when I graduate. I used to play piano but I only did it because my mom started dragging me to piano lessons when I was 6 years old so she could brag to all her friends.

I'm struggling a little bit in life right now, I really need some hobbies and to find something I'm passionate about or I think I will end up killing myself. It doesn't help that I don't have that many friends to hang out with, so I have to end up doing a lot of stuff on my own and I have a bit of social anxiety that makes it a little scary.

Any suggestions?

circles end.

I'll post most of the entry I wrote in my journal here, because it basically tells the story of my relationship with him. And that brings me to where I am now, full of problematic thoughts and manipulative yearnings.
>>>

sometimes you don't know where you went right. that's how i feel now. now that my relationship with him is over, i can finally be free. maybe. or maybe i'm back in my caged up old hole. the internet is my only respite. without it, i'm alone. without someone in my life, without some driving force, without something to lead me on, something to do, I would die.
I don't want it to be like that anymore. I want to be in control of who I am. I want to love again. It's true that generally we need something to live for, but at the same time I don't want to have to have something to live for. if that makes any sense.
he didn't want me to besmirch his reputation. so let's just leave it at that. let's just say that everything went wrong. i want to write the entire story down, but i'm scared i'll be telling all his secrets. secrets are sacred, and he didn't want the world to know.
but i feel like this is the only place where i can tell. i feel like i need an outlet, somewhere along. and if people choose to blame me for it, so be it.

I ruined it. Or maybe he ruined it. Somewhere along, we both ruined it. It could have been beautiful, but we didn't recognise how sacred it was.

But here are the secrets. From here on, I ruin every possibility I ever had with him, every possibility I have, every possibility I will ever have.

the storyCollapse )

Today he tried to call me a lot of times, but I didn't pick up. I cut his calls and didn't answer his messages. Apparently he tried to call me in the morning but I was in the bathroom and my dad answered. And then his brother called my dad (all the way from the US) to ask how I was doing, while I was at school.
He cares. But our relationship was too destructive. it's not about whose fault it is. it's just that things became too complicated and I don't know how to fix them anymore. I don't think he knows how to fix them either. and yesterday night I cut myself again, and I don't know what to do anymore..

I'm just kind of lonely. isn't that the strangest thing to say at the offset of it all? but it's true. i don't want to sound all over-angsty, but maybe I am over-angsty.

Long story, need advice

In case it matters, I'm a 28 year old female. I need some advice regarding a friend of mine, and I'm feeling really conflicted about it. (Not about getting advice, but about the situation.)

Long story about my beautiful gay friendCollapse )
So, the take home points:

- I am not averse to being friends with him again
- I feel like I should stand up for myself and protect my own interests and feelings
- I tend to automatically step up to nurture or be supportive, so stopping to think about whether I *should* do it feels unnatural
- In my head I recognize that friendship is a two-way street and that I deserve better
- In my heart I just want to see him and give him a big hug and have a good cry

I am going home to visit my family and friends in 2 weeks, and I would have time to visit him. However, I have not told him that I will be in town, so there is no external pressure to follow through on that. I'm tempted to email his mom, ask how he is, and ask if she thinks seeing him would be a good idea (since they are close, and she would be honest with me).

The problem is that I don't know if seeing him is a good idea, or if it would even be consistent with the stance I have taken in the last few months. There's just this irrational "because I want to" behind it.

Advice? Any thoughts at all are welcomed. Don't hold back.

Thanks to anyone who bothered to read all this. It's such a complicated mess. :)

well..

i'm really annoyed at the fact that my ex boyfriend cant be with me anymore due to his parents not allowing him....


today we were talking and he said that hes willing to wait till high school so that we could get back together. and i asked him if he wanted to date other people and he said no that he just really wants to be with me.

i don't know if i should wait for him.....

please give me opinions?

and add me if you want

I need some advice really bad. Okay heres what happened: My sister has been sort of a hand full lately. And my dad is usually the one who flips out, but last night my mom did. She has gotten really frustrated with my sister and doesn't know what to say to her anymore. Her and my sister got into a fight and my mom said she was gonnasend My sister to a home. You know like a gruop home for teenagers that have problems. And my sister flipped out. Not yelling flip out but crying flip out. I was in my room and heard her crying in the hall way and din't know what was going on. My sister was saying she couldn't believe her own mother would say that and that wasn't the worst thing anyone could have said to her. My mother then...out of anger...could her a little bitch...by then my dad was involved telling my mom to be quiet and my sister to stop crying. I still didn't know that my mom said that and didn't know until I was in my room with my sister and she told me about what happened. I got really mad at my mother and she was EXTREMELY lucky that I didn't see her for the rest of the night or she would of been really mad at me. You see I have this thing when one of my family members cry I do to and I get really mad and want to yell at the person who made them cry.And then my mother did come out and started yelling again and saying everything all over again and I got really mad. I told her to be quiet. I didn't want to say shut up because...oh I don't know I just didn't. My sister felt like she was betrayed. I mean this is my MOTHER!Not one of my sister's friends her MOTHER!! My dad was all like  she was tired and angry and didn't mean it. The my dad started telling my sister that she has really changed these past couple of months and saying all these other things. I was mad at him because he was not helping he was only making things worse. My sister is only 16. She has an excuse for acting the way she does...but my mom didn't need to say that! I don't care oh fucking angry she was at megan it didn't give her a right to say that. I am just so frustrated!! Megan then started crying again. I just think that what my mother said is unforgivable. Megan said she will never forgive her.  Then my dad called this morning to see how Megan and my mom were doing. I told him then that he didn't help last night by pounding those problems in to Megan when she already had THAT to deal with and that he should have been comforting her like I was. I mean I know it was probably awkard dor him because he is the father and in most situations the mom takes care of the comforting part. He then said that Megan needs to listen to them. And that they would talk later. And I said that I would not let mom near Megan if she was going to say anything like that again. Then my dad said I didn't understand. He had to go after that so I didn't get to respond. I don't know what I need advice on but could someone help me out and just say something to me. I can't help but feel even though she said it to Megan that she said it to me too and I won't be able to talk to her about my problems. I understand Megan can be frustrating and annoying at times but that didn;t help by saying that ya know?

Hello, i'm new!
and i'm wondering about some things lately. For whatever reason, recently my sex drive has kicked into high gear but i'm afraid to talk to my family (who are very christian and would be absoultely FREAKED if I started talking about this stuff, they DON'T want to think of me like that) and my friends are just as clueless as me.
Maybe I always thought about this stuff but was so digusted with myself that I never acknowledged it.
I've decided that whoever I lose it too, I want it to be special with someone that I love (I guess every virgin says that)and been with for about two or three months (at the least) but I want to lose my virginity by my 20th birthday (i'm 17 now).
So...some questions:
Does it hurt the first time? like screaming, crying pain?
Do you have an orgasm the first time or do you have to do it a couple times before you reach the "O"?
How do you know when it's ok to let him have "it"?
God, I feel weird asking that!

If you're intrested in being friends come to my journal and I have a MySpace, myspace.com/redflamez
