I Feel Vulnerable

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 110 People

    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.
