    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...

    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 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 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...

    Every time whether it's someone
