I Feel Let Down

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 269 People

    You told me you loved me,

    I wasn't sure if I could give you my heart. You want me to notice you, but take no notice in me. I'm not looking for another horribly unbalanced relationship, but my feelings betrayed me. Here I am, about to be free from the past; and you won't offer me a future, but wish me to...

    I don't even know how to explain this.

    I'm surrounded by so many people that I am close friends with but I can't somehow talk about what's really important and I act like a completely different person. I feel let down with my self and I feel the need to keep it inside of me for 15 years because I feel like why would...

    24 hours later. So I guess that's it.

    I put myself out there. But he hasn't responded back. Not only do I feel completely blindsided but I'm so confused why he hasn't contacted me, how could it go from being good to nothing in a matter of days. I don't regret reaching out to him, but I can't believe he hasn't had...

    I just got Chinese takeout

    and I got a fortune cookie but when I cracked it open, there was no fortune! A fortune cookie without a fortune is just a cookie :(

    My True Love Shattered Me.... He Let Me Down

    I first saw him when I was 13 years old.  He walked into the Mosque and it was as if a glow was around him.  I had a strange feeling in my heart that he was the one.. I had no idea what his name was or how old he was, all I knew was that this was the man I was suppose to marry...

    Sometimes We All Feel Let D...

    Sometimes we all feel let down, either by a situation or person. When you are down, the only way is up. Think positive, even if you cannot see a way out. It has happened to us all.

    Misunderstood

    Attractive, competent and to everyone else a confident woman.  No one sees me or understands what it's like when you go home behind closed doors and want to shut out the rest of the world. My close family doesn't understand - I have no real close friends as they all think I...

    You know when friends try to do things behind

    Again. It's the consequence of putting yourself

    on the line. I hardly ever do it. But I did it this time. It seemed like I was on the right track. I asked him out and he said yes. But now the week is here where we are supposed to see each other and he's not responded and it's leaving me questioning everything. What did I do...

    Over A Cancelled Date

    On a scale of 1-to-10, where 10 is very let down and 1 is just a little, this experience doesn't rank higher than a 5.  Nonetheless, it feels significant enough to share. One of my private enjoyments is watching WWE Wrestling.  Around one-and-a-half months ago, I...

    It Happens

    Often I do but maybe it’s because I expect too much. Like when my family forgets my sons birthday but I always remember theirs. He doesn’t know any better but one day he will just like my oldest notices.  I guess I expect the call to come in and when it doesn...

    Why is it that when I try to do something fun

    (like go out for Happy Hour with the girls) and I come home at 10 pm. There's always someone around that makes me feel that I did something sooooo terribly wrong?

    About a week ago I had a friend ?

    say that they no longer wanted contact. After 15 years of almost daily communication, there is such a void. It is difficult not to want to text them in a moment of weakness but I know it's not the best.
