    I fooled myself into thinking this self

    absorbed, greedy girl was my best friend for 10 years... Only to realize more & more that she takes advantage of my kindness and doesn't really give a **** about me. I did everything for her and sacrificed many friends to realize she's a fake too.

    I need a reliable, loyal,

    dependable, trustworthy friend. Every friend I had gossiped or took advantage of my kindness and I'm sick of it. Is there any good people in this world?

    I isolate. I have PTSD.

    I'm not just saying that, it's my therapists diagnosis. She says that's why I spend so much time alone, why I don't trust easily, why I work so much. I'm not looking for a relationship, i'm not confident enough to bring anyone else into my life. I believe once someone got...

    Everyone tells you they love you.

    Everyone says they'll be there for you. Everyone swears you're the best thing to them and that they'll do anything for you. Everyone is a liar. No one will care for you when you put in the effort. No one means a word they say. You push your problems to the side to help them, but...

    and no one really cares about me. I attempted and tried to socialize with people at a gathering, but I was never welcomed to join any conversation. What makes me upset the most is that I try to ask a question to someone, and that person just FREAKING IGNORES me, and then turns...

    Alone But not single which I think hurts more. Knowing they're 4 hours and 300 miles away... And not being able to do anything for them. It hurts. It really does.
