    Time To Dish It Out And Beat This State Of Mind.

    I Am Not The Embodiment Of Needy, But I Do Acknowledge It

    I have been needy all my life.  Maybe it's because I'm hearing impaired.  Maybe it's because I've never really had a good friend to look to.  I have ruined every close relationship I've had because of my neediness.  But the first step to fixing any...

    I miss my boyfriend all the time.

    We live a 30-minute drive apart, and it drives me crazy because I can't see him whenever I want to. I know that if we went to the same school and I saw him all the time, I'd probably get tired of him, or, worse, constantly worry about where he is and what he's doing. Honestly, I...

    It's Not The Most Pleasant Thing.

    Lately, I've been feeling soo needy.  Right when I have no one to cling to.  So, it sucks.  I want to be in a relationship with someone who loves me, and is my best friend.  Not someone who really doesn't act like they care about me at all.

    I avoid a lot of things in life (such as movies) just to avoid getting too emotional. I don't have very good coping skills, so I avoid things that I'll have to cope with.
