    "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.

    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...

    Every time whether it's someone

    that likes me is friends with me or my family I'm just a horrible messed up person that hurts people and I can actually be a really loving person most times I just sometimes hurt people by saying the wrong things, making mistakes or simply not trying with them🙈

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Unfortunately I must. I dislike this! I'm doing it for me. I used to be way too nice. Sometimes you need to hurt people in order to help yourself.
