    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...

    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.

    Betryal Is a B@tch

    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...

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