    And I Think That I'll Never Be

    my family thinks im second rate.  somehow i wanted to be the best in their eyes. my friends left me. i just wanted us to be friends for as long as we live.  maybe it's a cartoon-influenced mindset, but whatever, i think it's good.  but then it doesn't happen...

    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...

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

    Everyone always has excuses.

    Even my 'friends' don't want to be with me. I'm just not enough for anyone.
