I Always Seem to Hurt the People I Love

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 129 People

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

    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 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...

    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...
