    This Is So Freaking True For Me.

    EVERYONE ALWAYS USES ME!!! I've been told many times that being good is what matters most in this lifetime but I disagree with every single person who says that. Sometimes, I wish I had no feelings. I wish I was a selfish, greedy person who knew how to take advantage of people. I...

    Jilted Brain

    These words dieing to flow out, if only i could find a way to overcome this blockage of being able to express myself freely and openly and write the essence that is struggling to come out. Why do I need to feel guilty or bad for being who I am? Why this shame that boils inside me...

    I had a bonfire for some close friends

    and my "best" friend invited her bf just so I can get grounded and **** so she can make out w/ her bf on my couch. This is bs. She hasn't spoken a word to me the whole time.

    the doubt" that they won't take me for granted... Not take advantage of my kindness and won't hurt me because I would never do those things to them. I grew up believing treat ppl like u want to be treated and they will do the same..I've learned this is not true. Whether it's in...

    So Wrong...

    I don't know why people think it's a good idea to take advantage of others. It just makes me so sad and tearful. And recently, I've been taken advantage of, by someone claiming to be my "friend". I was only used to give her and her boyfriend advice all the time. But...
