    I Keep Hurting Him, And It Kills Me

    I met my incredible boyfriend online while I was in a sexless, emotionally abusive marriage. I didn't mean to love him, but I couldn't stop myself. I planned to leave and go to him without telling anyone, just disappear one day to avoid the drama I knew would ensue. It didn't...

    "I Always Seem to Hurt the People I Love"

    I always seem to hurt the people I Love the most, I don't mean to do it. No matter what I do or say, I try to be the best I can be. I hope that one day I can make them all happy and not hurt them anymore.

    Easier Said Than Done

    All of my life I have had an anger issue of sorts. And all of my life I have been told, "just stop it". Not so easy! I do not know how to cope with my high anxiety levels or frustration in healthy way. It builds up and I want to just let it go. Not say anything but I...

    I Keep Hurting Those Close To Me

    I hate it. I do. I don't know

    why I do it though. I'm not a very good person. I'm really negative and I brush off anyone that offers me help on anything. I'm trying to find a job so I can save a lot of money and move, hopefully, somewhere far away. It's not fair to my family and friends that they have to...

    It Is My Mouth

    No matter how hard I try, I regularly manage to say something that hurts the people I care about. The harder I try to avoid saying things that hurt the more it seems to hapen. What really bites is when I manage to hurt someone I love and I don't even know what I did. I tried...

    If You Count 4 Divorces As Hurting Someone I Think I Qualify

    I never set out to bring someone else pain. Maybe I thought about assinating Hitler or Fidel but having no actual way to do that they weren't in danger from me.  The ones that were closest to me learned to depend on me and when I decided to end our marriage that was hurtful and...
