    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 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 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 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. ^_...

    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 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...

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

    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?

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...
