    Past Experiences Reflect To Now..

    I think that my past experiences have a lot to do with it. Things can be perfect forever, but the second someone leaves, you become terrified that it will happen again because you remember the hurt. It's a hard thing to overcome.

    He Lied, He Told Me He Wouldn't, But He Did.

    I've been abandoned twice since I came to college a few months ago. One time by a couple of girlfriends and one time by a boy I cared about, who used to care about me. Maybe this is why I haven't had much fun here.

    Will It Ever End?

    I've been abandoned most of my life.  I was put up for adoption before I was even born.  Yeah, I was adopted, but my mother (the one who adopted me) has always let me know how ashamed of me she is.  So, I basically feel abandoned by her also.  I was engaged...
