    I think my girlfriend likes to seduce her dad.

    He compliments her allot. She wears no bra when we are going to be around him and really short skirts or shorts with no panties on. One day I even caught him staring at her when she bent over (her *** was all out). And in the kitchen I caught him rub his hand across the lower...

    I think sometimes people forget what it’s

    like to really feel to much, all the time. I can’t see any good coming out of these situations. This colliding phase doesn’t seem to end, the depressing part is it started before I understood what I was getting into. I just want them to be happy and yet I don’t want to...

    Do you ever get that feeling like their is no

    point anymore? Everything is going wrong. You feel like you cant be happy. And if you do smile its just to keep how you really feel a secret. I feel like everything that could possibly go wrong has gone wrong. I feel depressed and drained. All at once. I wish i could just end it...

    I think logically, and the only real emotions i

    have are frustration and compassion. I get really frustrated when people are stupid, but I also worry about people when they're sad and I value the humblest people the most. Despite this simple outlook, sometimes i just don't feel at all. I can be a machine sometimes, spewing...

    It's inevitable... There comes a point in your

    life when you painfully realize who matters, who never did, who won’t anymore, and who always will. And in the end you learn who is FAKE who is just USING you, who is TRUE, and who would risk it all for you.

    I'm feeling numb. I'm going through life atm

    without feeling a thing towards my husband (cheated on me) It's as if I'm going through the daily motions until we are able to separate. I do not feel anything towards him. Is anyone in the same place? Or has been??? Does this mean my marriage is really over?
