    This May Not Be True But It Definitely Feels Like It

    I have a talent for messing things up in my life. Had it since I started school. It seems like everytime things start going well for me, I have to turn them into bad things, turn people against me and go back to what appears to be my default emotion- sadness and loneliness. I...

    Can't/Won't Do It Any More

    Everyone in my life has at one point or another let me down. Some intentionally, others unintentionally. From my parents who were never there, to my grandparents who had no control over the matter as it was "their time to go". The latest of the long list of abandonment...

    Let Downs

    I've been let down by almost everyone I have ever associated with and trusted, so of course I now have HUGE trust issues. I don't ask people for anything, I don't expect anything, and I don't count on people, even after they have made a promise. It just rarely happens the way...

    Can't Anyone Just Be Real And Honest?

    You didn't just let me down you did not even attempt to catch me. Here is what is going to happen, I'm going to let you down now and then I am gone. I hope you will finally see what it's like to have someone crush you.
