    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.

    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...

    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.

    I'm not perfect. No one is.

    We've all sinned, we've all lied, we've all judged, we've been hypocritical, and we've all hurt someone (intentional or not) in our lives. I've done good things. I've done bad things. I try to be a better person everyday. I hold doors open for people, I say hello to people I...

    I'm not the most amazing person,

    I have my moments, I'm not an angel, but that doesn't mean I won't become one, we learn from our mistakes and I have, and I will make sure not to re make them, every saint has a past, every sinner has a future

    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...
