    I Really Do Deserve Better You Know...

    When I mean I deserve better, I mean a better job. I currently don't have a job, sadly. But I don't deserve to work in retail. I am so much better than that. Retail is only for the younger teens and adults that need money for a new pair of shoes. I want to work with the big boys...

    From Myself

    I do deserve better.  I deserve to be loved and cherished, catered to and appreciated.  I deserve to feel safe and held in love.  Where does one find that, when the person who is mistreating you most, is You?

    After Some Thought

    I have realized that I deserve better then you're lies. I opened my heart out to you, gave you all I could give of myself, and you ripped my heart to shreds. Through our whole relationship you always told me things I now know were lies. I don't see how anyone could lie like...

    I Deserve Better

    I am in an unhealthy relationship. He is completely insecure. He spent 6/6 years of our relationship cheating. I know, you're going to say get out now. Let me guess, you think I don't have enough sense to figure that out on my own? Actually I do. That's besides the point...

    So, I guess now I'm venting.

    I can say that I am a good person, I go out of my way to do nice things for people. I give people money and tell them not to worry about paying me back, and I don't accept the money back. I try and talk to everyone about their problems, I pretty much drop what I'm doing to do...

    ✏️If you can't be friends with me in public,

    then we can't be friends in private. I would love to be special, but a secret I will not be.

    I won't go into details

    but I know I deserve better than how the last person treated me. I want to forget her completely, to take back those 3 years that was stolen from me. I am moving forward, but at the same time, it is not that I fear rejection from someone who I may like and admire, yet, I do fear...

    I saw him today. He went out of his way to make

    sure of it. He came to my job. I guess he thought I wouldn't make a scene, and that we would have to speak. He apologized, and he said I didn't deserve to be lied to. He said he finally told his wife. She is in the process of leaving him now. I can't say I'm sad about it. ^_...

    Do I?

    I dug myself in this hole. My therapist even tells me so. This hell was fabricated by no one other than myself. So, sometimes I doubt that I deserve better because I am the one who put myself in such situation in the first place. My question are then these..how does one know one...

    The last time I saw him,

    before everything just ended, I felt different. Of course he was still the same -- laughing, smiling, joking, being affectionate, just a happy guy -- but me on the other hand, felt so different with him. I guess I had my doubts about him. The questions that have been lingering...

    I AM Better.

    It's taken me a while to realize, to really reflect on what has happened. But now I know: I deserve better than what you gave me. I deserve better than what you did to me. I deserve better than the life I would have had with you. I don't just deserve better. I AM better...
