I Feel Vulnerable

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 109 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.

    You Could Easily Hurt Me And You Know It

    With you, my guard is almost completely down. I place my fears, my dark secrets, and my dreams with you, and I share everything. I am almost completely open to you. I listen and obey you, even when I have other plans. I am allowing you to mold and shape me into what you want. I...

    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...

    Especially After This Casey Anthony Trial

    If someone chooses to murder me, they now know that our justice system doesn't protect the victims. If that person has the know-how and opportunity to hide their tracks with any half-assed effort, my murderer can (and probably will) go free, under our laws. I feel like, I need to...
