    What Would Yall Do

    It is not so much that I do not know what to do, I want confirmation for what I will do.   Been with my wife for almost 12 years, married for 5 years. Within the first year, she had an affair with a young homeless man I took in helped to get back on his feet. I guess he...

    Makes Me Mad!

    I think it's horrible how some people take you for granted, you won't always be here!! Grrr....they make me furious when they think they can take me for granted. I then have to show them that they shouldn't. No threats involved of course :)

    Taken For Granted

    I like helping out other and I'm very thankful for what they do for me. Let me explain my situation I came out of the hospital two months ago (mental issues) and I've been staying with my cousin who recently separated from her husband. We thought that helping each other would...

    I Am So Glad to Find You Because Lately I Am Feeling Very Taken For Granted Too.

    Maybe I have been too kind and accommodating- I think some of that is about to stop TODAY because it is simply not working for me.  After trading tickets from matinee to evening to suit my friend's split-second schedule, she said she couldn't make it to meet me at the...

    My Husband

    My husband takes me for granted. I pay all the bills. I buy everything for the house. I pay for his phone. He gets everything he asks for. Even though I go lacking for clothes and the things I need because i can't afford to do anything after the bills. He always talks about how...

    Grad School

    I finished my Master's degree with a 3.9 GPA yesterday and strangers were more excited than my own family. If it were my brother finishing his law degree my parents would be ecstatic...but who cares about a little 'ole Masters?

    Very Much So.....

    I write about this a lot in my stories but my personality is to blame. I am kind, thoughtful, sensitive and get described as sweet. I am also quite shy and not good at standing up for myself. Lately, my 18 year old sister attempted suicide. My parents are in absolute denial over...

    I have certain friends that I was friends with and I loved them but they just left. They never talked to me again. Also, every Christmas I made HANDMADE painstakingly painful gifts for all my youth group. There were at least 10 gifts each year. I got thank yous and hugs, but...
