    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...

    You are a monster who brought a ton of grief

    upon me! I trusted you as a child that you would accept me as a stepson. You showed your true colors once you were behind closed doors. You continue to be the beast you are. I hate you and will never forgive you for the hell you put me through. You say you are a good person...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    No matter how bad it hurts

    or how bad you feel, it’s time to stop thinking about that person who played with your feelings, who took your love for granted, who never appreciated your care, who wasn’t contented with what you could give him or her. You can’t stay at that hurtful place anymore. You can...

    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...

    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...

    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 know I do.

    I deserve somebody who doesn't want to be high on heroin all the time, someone who spends time with my daughter and I and actually enjoys it. I deserve love, honesty, and faithfulness. I don't deserve to be lied to, whether it be about small or big stuff. Why is it I can love...
