    I find it so hard though.

    Sometimes I get so angry or depressed for no apparent reason. I start crying for no reason and I'm mean to people even if I don't want to be. Then when I'm back to my normal self, I feel terrible for what I don't but I have too much pride to apologize for it.

    I feel like I'm pathetic.

    I have a huge crush on my Econ teacher and is know I'll never have a chance. he's married, has children, and he's 43. I love him so much but why can't I be normal and like someone my age? *sigh*

    I experienced a past

    that made me into an introverted and insecure girl. My dad did not have good parenting skills, and he would use aggressive and angry behavior towards me ever since I could remember. My mother was nice, but she never stopped him from hurting me and I sometimes I think about that...

    By This I Mean...

    I mean that I am trying to be a better person through learning and teaching. I am trying not to hate or hold grudges as they will do nothing for my future.

    Hi :) I want to start this off by saying please

    don't hate me, lol. Recently, I made a few changes to my profile. I used to be "BabyGirlNina4Daddy" on here, but now I'm NinaBunny, lol. One of the reasons I originally came on this site is to share secrets, and "let things out", because I felt it would be therapeutic, and so...

    It feels like you gotta earn your way in in

    Today I betrayed someone's trust.

    I took a break from speaking to them for a long time and when we reconnected, I went back to my old ways. I am a good person and I will make better decisions. This person that I have hurt constantly tells me that I will never amount to anything differently but I know better. I...
