    Abandonment Anxiety

    I was born to parents who loved me. I had extended family that spoiled and adored me. I was never abused or mistreated, I was very fortunate. Yet, I've had this issue for as long as I can remember. I get severe anxiety when someone I love is leaving for any extended period of...

    He Doesn't Love Me

    My parents always had a shaky marriage but what hurts is my dad didn't even fight for me. He fights for 50 cents, a bag of chips, or a stick of gum, but he didn't fight for his own kid. It hurts that in his eyes my worth is less than that of a bag of chips. As smart as everyone...

    True Dat

    Funny all the expressions you would use were so childish. Many times I thought you were more like my teenage son than an adult. Pretty immature for a 45 year old man. I guess I shouldn't be surprised when you didn't handle things well with me. You and I were really close and...

    Where Are They?

    I never really minded solitude. Well not until now, anyway. When I was little I was mostly alone, but I created imaginary friends to compensate for the lack of real ones, and I was happy. Then I started making real friends, and I was happy. The trouble is, that imaginary friends...
