    I have yet to meet anybody in this world like

    me. I go threw and have beer threw so much words cannot explain. The trauma and impact that people have had on my lives is so unbearable. I have always been the weak and vulnerable person that the pact picks up on and attacks. Why wouldn't people ever befriend me in school.. I...

    I'm Not Good Enough To Be Loved.

    Who would love me? I'm insecure, jealous at times, I over think and over analyze everything, and I care too much about people who could give two ***** about me. I'm flawed but I'm also really sweet. I don't think I'm good enough for any guy. I'll always be the girl who is...

    I don't know why, but I've always had this

    problem. I mean, whenever there's someone I really like, and they say they love me back, there's always a voice in the back of my head saying: 'He doesn't really love you, he'll leave eventually' and it goes like this every single time. Don't get me wrong, I really want to...

    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.

    I feel like people may like me

    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

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    Uncharacteristic

    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...
