    Unfortunately, the people

    who are supposed to love us aren’t always able to give us the kind of love we need. Whether they are our mothers or our fathers, our grandparents or our siblings, some family, no matter how good their intentions, leave us feeling empty, invalidated, not cared for, and alone...

    I fell in love over and over again,

    every time my heart is broken, my support or so they said, always blames me, it back fires at me, am hurt, and I don't know who to talk to, about my life, my worries, my love, my feelings, my pain, my happiness, I don't know if I'll ever find someone, man or woman, old or young...

    No one knows why I am hurting deeply

    even If I tell them what's wrong. I mean it's nothing that they could do. College starts in a few weeks.. Don't know about these loans which I have to pay back in a few years, my boyfriend is going away to college and it's very painful for him not being here supporting me...

    All my friends complain to me with their

    problems. Sure I try to help and try to be a friend but sometimes their problems are so little I don't think they understand how I have problems to. They act like they are the center of the universe. But I can't complain my problems aren't big enough either.

    I'm Hurting Badly --

    No one knows that i'm hurting. There's not one person to talk to about it, so it lies inside of me and poisons my thoughts. I fell in love with a man 17 years ago -- he hurt me deeply -- 7 months ago, I met a young man on Facebook, we chatted and then began talking on the phone...

    Sometimes I feel like just curling up on the

    floor and clawing at my own face. Picking at my skin, ripping and scarring because I can’t handle all the noise going on inside. It hurts on a level I hadn’t anticipated. I wasn’t prepared and now I’m left stranded with a crippled heart and nowhere to turn. A thousand...

    Every day I carry so much pain with me.

    I hide it, because some people abuse the knowledge. They will pour salt in the wounds that cause me pain. The people I usually trust simply give me the usual 'cheer up', or 'you'll be fine', and the best of all is 'you're a strong person'. Yes of course, but in the mean, I'm...

    Everyone is hurting or fighting some kind of

    battle, I hear it said a lot. Perhaps that is why I shrink back into myself when I am hurting and depressed. People are not equipped to help or love. There are so many messed up, wounded people walking around it's not funny. The older I get the more I see what we are really...

    Do I Always Need To Explain?

    I try so hard to be strong for those around me. To not show how much I'm hurting. When I need to break down, I always do it alone, out of sight, out of reach. I don't want to burden anyone with my problems. But occasionally, I just break, like I did yesterday. One person, anyone...

    Either I'm a great actress

    or people close to me just don't care enough to ask what's wrong. I fake a smile everyday. There are times when I've thought about ending my sad existence but I know I could never actually do it.

    When there is nothing to do,

    no reason to live, some people become reason for it. Then, this thought saves us that we are their love, their need, and a whole world to them. If we do not want to live, We have to live for them. When our souls cease to live, these people revive our dead spirits and give us...
