    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...

    It's hard living in a non-supportive family,

    Well...some, Not All

    I'm not going to name anyone, but I have a few friends who're...disappointing as a friend. One-way friendships aren't cool.

    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...

    I'm So Tired of It...

    Nearly every person who has come into my life has let me down. A lot of it at first had to do with me building them up and putting them on such high pedastals that they couldn't possibly live up to the greatness I made them out to be. As time grew on though, I stopped having...

    I befriended someone on EP opened up to them,

    tried to help them in their so called troubles, only to find that they were not what or who they made out to be. Really upsetting when you trust someone and they let you down

    I lay in bed at night trying my best to sleep but swept away with racing thoughts and I am always left with the question "why me". I have spent too long with the wrong people who have left scars on me, they have whispered empty words in to my ear but as soon as the going gets...

    On any given day, some one (mother-in-law, father-in-law, aunts, uncles, Grandparents) will call my husband and tell him to come fix something for them or come move something for them. He will run right over there and do it. But, on the few occasions that we have needed help...
