i feel slightly bad, in a way i feel as though im just venting on a random website. but i know its always best to share with other people, and for me the anonymous factor is nice.

essentially i just go through phases where i feel really down.. for one reason or another. at the moment its my future, ive finished school, am having a year out and have no clue what my future holds, for me its worrying, i dont like the uncertainty.. these current issues have been brought on by the olympics... i see all those athletes doing something amazing, and then i worry what i will contirbute to the world, i know althetes dont really contribute much more than entertainment, but everyone knows who michael phelps is, i dont necessarily want to be known, but if that came because id done something amazing in the world, then id be so happy.. i mention phelps specifically because i used to be a great swimmer, no where near that good, but who knows, the olympics wasnt n
ecessarily out of reach, but i gave it up long ago. i just feel that me being an 18 year old, most of lifes opportunities have already passed me, especially the ones that would let me make a difference. ive never even been close to self harm or anything like that, i couldnt bring myself to do it, but really i rant because i hate when im down like this, and it occurs more often than id like, in a world where so much is bad, or hard, i find it difficult to imagine where i will be in years to come and i dont like not knowing, i just dont want to end up being someone who just does any old job to get through life and then dies having not achieved anything worthwhile...

I get like this sometimes. but then God reminds me, He is in control, but I know how you feel, but you are only 18 year old, your life is just beginning so you have many many more years ahead of you to take many great chances. Stop worrying so much.

You should make a list of changes and things you want in life . It's a terrible feeling when you feel like nothing's going your way.
