    Friends :/

    I dont understand why friends come and go so much in my life. I am pretty sure it is me, like something is wrong with me but I don't know what it is. I wish I had a friend but don't want to even try making friends anymore I feel like it is pointless they will just come and go...

    I Only Want One Under This Condition:

    ...that I will be able to be completely honest about myself, and accepted for who I am without unecessary, overcritical judgement.  And I would expect this same honesty in return. If I can't have this, I don't want to be around people..I would rather be alone...

    This sounds so crazy,

    but I honestly just want a normal friend. My boyfriend is in bootcamp and most of the time I'm alone. I don't mind it so much but it starts to get lonely. I'm 20, and most of the friends I used to talk to are out partying. I'm just over that phase of my life, it's all out of...

    My Thoughts On "true Friendship"

    I've learned a lot throughout my struggles with friendship. At the beginning I thought true friends don't exist because so often we trust our friends only to see them leave us, and so OFTEN friends come and go for very selfish reasons - I believe there's hope. I had a close...

    Something I Have Never Had.

    Yes, I have friends, but I am more of a friend to them then they are to me. I have a habit of making friends with selfish people, who only care about themselves and who aren't compassionate to my problems or my needs. I think the reason I attract these types of people because I'm...

    "Please don't hurt me.

    " She whispered. You gazed into her dark eyes, full of desperation and a touch of hope. Words wouldn't form the way you wanted them to and you stumbled through a response, but all that came out was a choked, "Never." A shaky smile formed on her lips. She peered up at you...

    I'm Sick And Tired Of Fake Friends

    I think I can speak for a lot of people who've met and befriend fake friends. One too many times, I've been burned by fake friends. Sigh, I'd love to meet some real friends sometime soon.
