    They Just Petty Me

    No matter what I do, I always feel as though I'm in the way, or unwanted. Due to this, I rarely accept invites to things, or suggest something to do. The only reason people talk to me is because they feel bad for me, that will always be the case. I hate feeling this way, and...

    There is not a day I go without receiving any

    sort of criticism. No matter what I do, what I say, or even what I don't do and what I don't say, there is always someone to criticize me. It comes from words, it comes from gestures and actions, it comes from the look in their eyes. I feel as if living in a cage. I am confined...

    I Have Always Felt This Way.

    I get sad often, for little or no reason. I have panic attacks triggered by seemingly innocuous things. I have a lot of baggage.   When I was a child, I was still this way.  I expressed my pain to my friends.. and, they tolerated it.  They'd hug me or let...

    Forever Not Changed

    I never thought in a million years that I would be where I am now. I thought that I'd still be homeschooled, and I'd still be the person that my family seems to want back. I was pretty sure that my innocence wouldn't be stained by the depravity and darkness that can exist in this...
