    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.

    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...

    I Have A Strong Sense Of Pride.....

    And I hope that will never change. I keep my life and past a secret from everyone as I am deeply ashamed of where I am right now. 26, single, still living at home and with no friends. I don't know if that comes across in person. Whenever anyone asks me what I did of a weekend, 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...

    Don't Give Me That Look.

    (This was after I had gotten some news that sent my life on a different curveball.)Don't look at me that way. I have been able to hold myself together and put this from my mind and your flustered pity threatens to crush me yet again, if only to weigh on my shoulders like a heavy...

    I want empathy, somebody

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

    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.

    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 hate people feeling sorry

    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
