I Am Tired of Feeling Like I'm Plan B

For anyone who's ever felt like they've been pushed aside or second choice over someone else. 261 People

    At my core I am happy.

    I am happy with myself, in my own space, with my life, and all of my choices. The problem is being so able to rely on myself has kinda turned into a negative. "Who would care enough to give me the best?" I rely on others and get let down. I never screw myself over, so if i...

    I'm Done With It Now.

    My brother and I have this friend named Steven. My brother got into a fight a while ago with Steven, and Steven started to text and talk to me alot more than usual. At first I didn't think much of it, and for a while I thought we were really close friends. But as soon as my...

    When It Comes To...

    friends..guys...family even sometimes...I'm most likely to be placed on the backburner.  I think my low self-esteem and varying opinions of myself may reflect onto others, and they in turn treat me as I show them I feel about myself.  I've got a lot of work to do, but maybe in...

    Always Second Best

    “Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option.” I really should listen to this advice. But unfortunately I can't bring myself to. I always end up putting them far too high on a pedestal whilst not realising too late that I'm just a...

    Just Once.

    I know this feeling well.  I just want once in a relationship to feel like I am the only one and that there are no other choices.  I don't want to compete for the affections of a man and I WON'T!  I want to know that when I wake up next to him he isn't dreaming...

    I'm not a second choice,

    and I sure as hell am not third choice. I'm just so tired of being the person someone talks to because they can't talk to who they really wanted to. Don't think of them while you're talking me. Because I know you don't want to talk to me... just don't talk to me at all if it's...

    I never feel like I'm anybody's first choice :(

    It's like I'm living my life in the shadow of everything I want and will never be. I used to be smart and get good grades but I threw that away because I thought I knew best. I hate my body. I have a good job now so I guess I've landed on my feet but I still feel like I'm a fake...
