I Am Afraid Of Never Being Truly Loved

    It's hard for me to admit. I like to see myself as an independent type who needs no one else, but the truth is that I year for somebody to love me, even if it's just one person. And I'm terrified that it will never happen. I don't want to be on my own, living my own life, in my...

    Is It Irrational?

    I know everyone finds their one true love, but what if I never find mine? What if I never find the man who can love me and want to spend his life with me? :( What if?

    I wish the first thing people see in me is

    who i am and not the facade of my anatomy. I had a relationship with a person who was only attracted to my facade. We were both honest with each other so when he broke-up he was blunt with me. He thought I was something I was not, but even when he came to know me he still...

    As I enter the world of showbiz,

    I am just a little coward to be in a life where in I am not. Who truly loves me or not, I do not know. I don't know anything. All I know is that I am being helped by a lot of people. It makes sense for being in there gives a life of royalties. It doesn't matter if you are a star...

    I Don't Love Myself Enough

    I don't, and this has to stop. I am not going to live my life like a victim any longer.  This is why I won't ever be truly loved, because I don't love myself enough.  Other people have bad things happen to them in life...but they decide to be happy anyways....or at least they...

    Never being loved for just me,

    raw, ordinary, not 'presh' not 'awesome'. Just me and my passions. Another dream catches the winds. And drifts... Its hard to keep up the front. It really is.

    Last Time

    And now I think I've found it.

    .. A new fear eclipses this. The fear of hurting him. I feel as though my worth is questionable, that I hurt all that I touch. It's not just a feeling, it's a history. A long list of examples. With so much love comes so much to lose. To ever see the sunset of happiness in his...

    All We Need Is Love

    When I was younger, I didn't believe in love at all. I feel the world we live in is too selfish. The last couple of years I realized love does exist. There are very few people in the world that truly know how to love someone completely. I know that I am capable of giving someone...

    or want to be with me for a little, but no one will want to longterm. I'm afraid that I'll end up with "good enough" and never experience true love

    24 years old. Never been in a relationship.

    Never been loved. I've had what I call "flings." Guys that will sleep with me, put up with me for a while, then leave when the next girl comes along. I don't think I will ever be loved, let alone liked. I'm at the point where I just want to die.

    I am not afraid to let go.

    I am not afraid to cut negative people out of my life. I am not afraid to love myself because you failed to do so. But I am afraid of never feeling the same type of love we had. The kind of love that made me lose myself in fearlessness. The kind of love that made all my self...

    I'm afraid of dying a virgin.

    I'm afraid of dying without anyone to cry and miss me. I don't open to females. I'm not good enough. I haven't kissed a girl, seen a girl nude, been close to a girl in over two years when "she" took my heart and ran away with it. I still don't have it.
