    When I Self Destruct

    My story is repetitive, replaying every few years with different people who love me and who I love. I can't seem to know how to love in ways women want to be loved. It seems as if I choose the healthiest, happiest, and most beautiful girls and like a cancer I slowly kill their...

    I Float From One Blessing to Another

    In the meantime, I screw up the wonderful things that God has sent into my life.  I'm not purposefully destructive but have not been a great role model either.  I've never kept a job more than 4 years; been divorced 4 times; been fired a couple of times.  On the...

    It's Reached The Stage Where I Want It To Stop.

    I really am my own worst enemy. Over the years I've self destructed all the good things I was both given, and worked hard to attain. Relationships, job opportunities, it's a long list, but now I'm 30, I can see a pervasive pattern, and I want to try and stop it...

    Always Pushing Away

    I always PUSH away what is good in my life.  I in fact just pushed away one of the most and best people that could have walked into my life.  Why I do this I have no clue.  How I do it I have no clue.  I kill myself with it.  Maybe somewhere deep down inside I do not find...

    What did I do wrong? Right

    now it feels like everything I have worked for is just falling apart. I can't go back to university next year due to financial issues, so I'll more than likely lose my hard-won position in my screenwriting class. Just this morning my mother told me I'll have to move back in with...

    Don't Let Me Lose You

    I don't want to mess this up, and I almost have already. So I'm keeping things slow, and not bringing up the things I know will break us. I know what we have is a thin thread. I don't know if I can weave it into a rope, or a chain made of titanium. But I'd love to. I'd love to do...

    I Feel Like I'll Always Be A Nobody.

    I always say or do something that always messes up something good in life. I've cried myself to sleep numerous nights in a row, hoping something good will happen.I am 17 years old, but I'm not perfect. I hate myself and everything around me. I guess I need some sort of support...

    Why Do I Always Feel Like It Is My Fault?

    That is a very easy question for me to answer. It is my fault 99.9% of the time. I always manage to screw up good things. I recently had a roommate move out that was actually causing changes for the good in my life. Naturally, i had to go and screw that up! The pain caused...

    Same Old Same Old

    I Do

    It is as though there is a self-destruct addiction.  I am blessed with so many good things in life and I will inevitably destroy each and everyone of them, and in a way that there will be irrepairable damage.  I feel that I don't warrant them, I feel that they...
