    I Do Not Stand Up For Myself.

    I let everyone use me. i accept the fact that people will use anyone they can as long as the person allows them. The problem with me is I cannot say what's needed to be said. I usually do the polite thing, saying its okay, even when its not. As a result, I have friends for a...

    Just Can't Bring Myself To Do It

    I don't communicate my wants and needs because I don't believe that I deserve to have them fulfilled. I never have, I've always just suffered in silence. Others ask and get what they need, but I can't. It sounds strange, but I can't physically get the words out. I just think I...

    Shutting Down

    I have a terrible time expressing myself emotionally, especially in my relationships. If I feel that someone has hurt or offended me in anyway, and it's something that needs to be addressed, I'll gather all my thoughts in my head and sometimes I even talk myself through the...

    My Credibility Only Grew W My Family When I Started To Lie

    My mother is a wonderful lady, but the woman absolutely drives me insane. For one thing, there are certain things I excelled in back in college, such as Psychology. But for some reason, if I am the source to talk about ANYTHING in Psychology, I don't know what I'm talking about...

    Follow Your Dreams! Unless....

    I heard an excellent quote on Saturday. A graduating boy said, "follow your dreams! ... unless they're stupid." This line may cause some of you on ep to call out in protest, but I think this is one of the sad and many truths that go unspoken. So take his advice! Be realistic...

    I don't see how someone can tell you that they love you and want to be with you and then they are telling someone else the same thing. I think that if that is the case I would be better off on the streets because I have had this happen to me all the time and I'm getting tired of...

    Cannot Say No

    I am a typical doormat. I do what everyone else wants me to do and I have a hard time saying no; due to the fact that I do not want to hurt people's feelings. I let my feelings go so that other's will be happy. After I do this, I turn around and complain about it. The sad part is...

    I Am Not....

    ....a vocal person. I am very quiet and keep to myself. I keep all of my emotions bottled up inside of me. Rarely do I let people know if I have a problem with them or how I am feeling.

    Navy Girlfriend

    I have always had a hard time expressing my thoughts and feelings. Then the person who swore that he would never hurt me, did. It broke something in me that let a whole lifetime of emotions crash down on me. Love, hate, fear, sorrow... It was too much to handle. I found this...

    That you hurt me more than anyone else ever has. The dumb thing is I don't know why I care enough to let you. But I will get over you. I will find someone, who cares, like you should.
