    When I was a child people would tell me

    that one day I would be a heart breaker. I didn't really understand what it meant but it didn't sound appealing to me. I was confused as to why they had huge smiles on their face while exclaiming this. To me it seemed like a horrible concept, breaking peoples hearts. Whatever it...

    I am scared to sleep.

    My bf touches me in my sleep. I wake up terrified and unsure what to do. Last time I jumped awake. He says I woke him up from me jumping awake... It scares me that he does that when I'm sleeping. I'm not sure if he is doing it in his sleep or not, but now I'm scared to sleep...

    I haven't been on in a while,

    because I tried to kill myself and ended up pretty bad. But I'm not dead, so it was a waste of time. I'm scared of myself now, and I'm scared about what I might do to myself. I feel the voices of anorexia creeping up on me again- which makes me feel so guilty because not only...

    Bravery is not about not being scared
