    Once Upon A Time...

    There was a time I was that girl who jumped from guy to guy. I was so scared of not being with someone. I hated being in the house alone or being in bed alone. Ever since I left my husband, I have been so empowered and want nothing more than to be independent. Don't get me wrong...

    Are Memories Enough?

     I think most people are scared that they might end up being alone, I know I do. I try to think that even if I end up alone someday, that I'll have lots of memories that will keep me going. Knowing that I've lived a good life, that I've helped people and been helped. But...

    I'll Be Alone When They're Gone

     I am in my early 40's and have never had a relationship. I still live with my parents who are getting up in years and when they go, I'll be completely lost. I have a very hard time coping with life as it is and when they go I think it will be more than I can take.

    Everytime I wake up from sleep, I feel alone. I feel alone all the time. With everyone around me, 16 girls in total, I am alone. Because none of them is by my side. We are a group, but there are circles within circles. And I have no circle. Because I was never clever enough...

    I literally have this horrible fear

    that I'm going to end up being alone for my whole life. I'm 19 and practically nobody has expressed interest in wanting to be with me and it's tearing me apart slowly.

    I don't know what to do anymore. Why am I like this? What's wrong with me? Want to know my biggest secret, the one I've been hiding...sometimes I think it would be easier if I just wasn't alive anymore. I can't live in fear like this
