    I Still Feel Like An Unloved Child

    One of my earliest memories is walking around the schoolyard on my own, making up games in my head. It never occurred to me to try to make friends because I assumed that if I was good enough people would come and find me. They rarely so I thought I was on my own because I wasn't...

    I decided to open up to my "friends" about

    being sexually abused for 10 years, and they think I only say that because I want attention and pity.

    unimportant, unseen and uninteresting. People glance my way and see no more than scenery. Ostracised by my friends at school, I inhabit the grey area between social circles, known by many, loved by few and seen by all. I hate where I am, I'm scared of where I'm going and I can...

    I just tried to share a memory about someone

    who's gone with someone I love and I got called a liar. I feel like I belong nowhere and no one will ever just accept me for the person I am. There will always be something I'm not allowed to discuss. I feel so alone.
