    I Want To Punch Them In The Face.

    I am an extremely peaceful person, but i absolutely hate when people feel sorry for me. Yes, i am sick. That does not mean i am broken. I may be afflicted by a disease, but this disease DOES NOT define me. Pain does not confine. I live by this everyday, I am staying strong, I...

    I Do Not Want sympathy.

    I want respect. I am a survivor to extreme emotional, mental, physical, and sexual abuse. In saying that I have my deal of problems. Many would probably say I suffer from mental illness. Many would say I am crazy. But to me... I am strong. I am 25 years old, and...

    I Don't Want Pitty

    I do enough of that for myself and it gets me nowhere but deeper into my rut. I know it's maybe a bit hypocritical of me but I do feel sorry for myself but if I think some one else is feeling sorry for me or they say "I feel sorry for you" I take it as a bit of an insult. I...

    I know that I've lost a lot.

    But you telling me "I feel sorry for you" won't help me and in matter of a fact I'd take it as an insult.

    Alone For Christmas

    I left my abusive family behind this year, and currently live in the town in which I go to school. Christmas hasn't been an event for us since I was very young, so I didn't think I'd be missing much. I am little bit worried about being lonely when all my friends leave for the...

    I Don't Deserve It

     I don't feel the least bit of sympathy for myself, so why should anyone else?  I don't deserve anyone to feel sorry for me, I'd have to be better person to deserve sympathy.

    I want empathy, somebody

    who understands my pain, the things I'm going through. Sympathy and pity aren't wanted or needed.

    Don't Get The Wrong Impression Of Me

    Quite a few of the stories I've written on here have a negative slant to them, but that's only because I'm writing about how I'm feeling. How I feel is how I feel and I won't apologize for that. Instead of writing in a journal, which is something I always say I'm going to do but...

    for me because it puts to much attention on me. People feel bad for me because my back pack is to heavy and i cant use my locker but i can handle my problems unlike most of the people in my school who cheat of me or take advantage of me
