    Feel like I'm a last resort,

    everyone puts me down all the time- no wonder I have no friends. How do I turn my life around? Why does life hurt so much

    It's Called Self-sabotage.

    When ever I'm happy—happy with my plans or relationship—I sabotage myself. I convince myself that my plans are going to fall through, so why should I bother? or that, who ever is in the relationship with me is just using me. I start thinking I'm stupid, ugly, fat...

    Even Guardians Can Fall

    By nature I'm a social person.

    I like to be around people, talking to them, hanging out. A lot of times through texting, I text how I feel. I text the way I am feeling. I've always assumed others do that too. So when someone texts "K." Or "cool." Etc.. Really short uninteresting answers. It makes me feel like...

    Quest For Perfection

    I think it starts when you're very young.  Parents that yell and tell you why couldn't you get a 99% instead of the 90% that you did get.  But then it continues.  Jobs that demand perfection; Quality Control, Audits, etc.  Flawlessness; no acne, no fat, no...
