looking for good, honest friends.

Hi, I post here on occasion. More than I probably should... I'm a 22-year-old female living in the Pacific Northwest of the United States.

I suppose I could go on and on about my interests or what I do for a living or talk about my wonderful boyfriend. But, I'll be honest: I'm single (now, unfortunately, I am struggling with getting over a break-up), unemployed, and don't have a ton of interests because I struggle wtih depression and agoraphobia and rarely leave my house. I know, I sound like a winner already, don't I?

But, that's okay. Because I try to think my journal is a bit different from the norm. I don't go on and on about my daily life or talk endlessly about fandoms or post memes. I internalize things a lot and focus on my deeper thoughts. But I don't like to think I'm "deep"; I just like to think I'm honest. I am very introspective, and lately my posts have mostly been about my mental health and my faith (I'm Christian, but not an ooey-gooey one; I love God and Jesus, but I struggle with a lot of conflicted feelings too, when it comes to things like my sins). If you don't have interest in reading about either of those things, well, my journal probably isn't for you.

I like the very small friends-list I have now. I like being able to focus my attention on each of my friends and to get to know them well. I guess I'm just looking for some fresh perspectives, and to have some new people in my life. I'm lonely, admittedly. I can't guarantee I'll add you -- I tend to be rather closed off and, due to things that have happened in my life, it takes a lot for me to be able to trust others with my thoughts. Don't take it personally, I'm sure you're a wonderful person even if I don't add you.

Anyway, I have a few public entries in my journal to give you a taste of what I write about. Read them, if you'd like. And, if you'd really like, you can add me. Just say hello at least, because I don't tend to add people who add me without saying a word. Thanks. I look forward to getting to know some of you, although I don't have exactly high hopes I'll even get responses to this. :)
