    The Death Of Pollyanna...

    Maybe this is just an experience that comes with living. Maybe I got here so late because I married young and therefore got my delusions later in life. But I'm coming to learn that people aren't often what they portray themselves to be. And the Perpetual Pollyanna finally...

    He called, Anger in his voice.

    Bitterness through the phone leaks into me. He's not the same. He says all I do is complain. who wouldn't? This will never work out. He's the laziest I've ever seen him. A body with no soul, no cares in the world. I hadn't cried in days and as soon as he began to speak, his...

    The Battle

    I feel like I'm constantly fighting a battle within. On one hand I'm so much stronger now because of my past. I've learned so much about myself and how to like me and how to be happy with me. I've learned to enjoy the little things and to appreciate anything that anyone offers...

    Ah, trust, this is a thing some people think

    should be offered at first meeting until the prize is abused, then it should be taken away and re-earned.I have always been of the thought that trust is always earned and never given until it is proven that the receiver is worthy.Once broken though this would be the hardest...

    Lies, Lies, and more Lies.

    I got out of a relationship at the beginning of August. I was in it since March, but the guy said he wasn't happy the last two months we were together. He said that he was, but he lied for two months straight about being happy. It made me feel bad because I felt like I wasn't a...

    The Best Intentions

    The scorpion said to the frog, "let me hop on your back while you cross the river". The frog said, "why would I want to do that, you will sting me and I'll die". The scorpion replied, "that is silly, if I did that, we would both drown and die". "O.K. hop on" the frog said...

    It has been said "time heals all wounds" I do

    not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone

    I'd love to be less guarded around people in an

    ideal world. Maybe it'll open more doors to me. But I've been letdown by people far too much, and not too many people have proven their worth when it comes to total and utter trust. Some people say they're trustworthy, but don't always prove it, or don't prove it enough for...

    Society & Such

    Soon after changing my appearance to suit what I like (aka cutting my hair short and dying it red), I realized how ****** up society is. Back when I had long, blonde hair, a bunch of people called me pretty. Random strangers would walk up to me and say they liked my hair, etc. A...

    I Have Problems

    trusting people. Major problems. Probably because every time I trusted someone, up until this year, I was betrayed. So now, I just wait for people I 'let in' to turn on me and hurt me. I know I need to get over it, but how do you get over 19 years of hurt? How do you trust when...

    People brag about having trust issues

    but that's how I can tell who does or does not have them because those of us who really have trust issues are at war with it. We don't like it. It's not easy wanting to have people around and have people accept you but you can't because this part of you just will not let you go...

    I don't trust people very easily.
