    I feel deserted. I don't see my friends

    for months and the times when I've tried to make contact, they always have an excuse but it all comes down to, "Sorry, there are a lot of other things that are more important than you." All I want is to have somebody be there for me, and vice versa. I've never been able to...

    For Myself

    It's funny how no matter what I do, no matter how much I do, I'm never enough for myself.  How does a person's self esteem get that low?  Growing up, my family wasn't perfect, but they loved me.  There were a few things here and there that I know ate away at my...

    Never Enough

    It feels like I am never a good enough mother,daughter or sister. Sometimes I just want to shut myself away and tell everyone to go away. I am slowly losing it, I feel like no one understands that I don't mean to be the way I am. It just seems like I am never enough. It's...

    Depending On Who You Talk To.

    The acceptence that I'm never going to be enough in the eyes of my family, is actually freeing, in a way. I am more than enough, in my eyes, and that's what's important to me and my life.

    I am never enough. The best thing I can do is just move on because I can never make you change your mind.
