    I feel bad because while my friend was just

    physically abused, I'm abusing myself. I don't deserve to be upset when she's going through this. I should be her rock through this. I have to hide any signs that I'm not okay because she doesn't need to worry about me. What right do I have to be so utterly depressed when she's...

    I'm Messed Up.

    I have terrible thoughts. Sometimes I wish I was being abused, or raped, so people would feel sympathy for me. I'm a sicko for thinking something so terrible, and I know this. I also wish people around me were smart enough to see me for me. Because I can't. I don't know who...

    You Naughty Girl!

    I ALWAYS feel like a bad person.  I suppose if you don't feel like one too often it could keep you in check, but when you often feel like a bad person it can head you down the wrong path.  I believe that if you feel you're a bad person you BECOME a bad person. I've...

    I don't like kids. At all. They disgust me. I deal with them all day and they are rude, stupid, and just a waste of time for the most part. Once in a while I come across a kid that is awesome, but normally? Nope. And I don't feel bad about holding that opinion. Most of these kids...

    I say horrible things at times.

    I can be evil and truly cruel. I don't want to be. But if I stop then my shyness and anxiety and insecurity will show more. Or maybe that is just an excuse.

    that I don't feel comfortable talking to her because she just give off that "this is fake, just one freaky guy pretending to be a girl" vibe. She then blocked me. I think I am really a bad person. It's really hard for me to trust everybody online.
