    It feels like someone pulled the rug from under my feet when i wasn't even looking and let me fall, broken, to the ground...and everyone stood watching....laughing...not laughing because of the fall...but because i was so naive to expect anything different.....bf.

    I'm Afraid

    My vulnerabilities are making me feel weak right now. The simplest things could break me. I feel a little bit outside of my body, like I don't fit anywhere. I am uneasy, skeptical and afraid. I don't want to let anyone get too close because I don't want them to know. I don...

    Today a 'friend' read through a private letter

    and denied it. The letter contains some very personal feelings (my ex was abusive and I left him this letter when I managed to get away) The things in the letter are things I don't talk or think about anymore and I'm embarrassed and angry about the whole thing.
