    Yeah, There Are Those Times

    Like, you know, you thought they could be there for you, but they can't. Like, all you need is someone who can listen, someone who won't judge at that moment, & yet, it still happens. You feel helpless, and alone. and it's disappointing, frustrating, but it usually happens.

    Betrayed Trust

    I thought I could trust him with my secret. Well, it turns out that I couldn't he told someone my deepest secret...well, one of them & now I feel betrayed... AGAIN! I told him because I thought he was trustworthy. Well, turns out... no one is.

    Unfortunately.

    I just recently made the most difficult decision of my life. It was sooo hard on me and when I needed my close girl friends most, no one was there for me other than my very best friend. I thought that we were so close and that they would be here for me no matter what. I was...

    Shouldn't Be That Way

    maybe it's naive of me, but i thought there were people in this world that you should be able to expect better from. people that you could rely upon and trust. i'm not talking about casual acquaintances, but family, friends, people you've known your whole life or at least most of...

    BUT I Can Count On Me

    ULTIMATELY THAT'S THE GIFT ALL THE FRIENEMIES I'VE HAD HAVE GIVEN ME, AND SOME FAMILY MEMBERS TOO. I LEARNED TO CONFIDE IN MYSELF, CONSOLE MYSELF, SUPPORT MYSELF, BELIEVE IN MYSELF, LOVE MYSELF, AND PUT MYSELF FIRST SO I THANK ALL OF YOU FOR BEING SO DAMNED TRIFFLING.

    But As of Right Now _ I Am Counting On Me!!!

    Starting this moment - I am standing firmly, proudly and strongly on these two feet. No more meekness - no more resentments - no more excuses.  I am taking back my life - and that is an empowering feeling.  For my EP friends on here that have talked to...
