    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.

    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...

    am I wrong for speaking up

    and saying something when no one else would? I guess blowing up on your boyfriend's grandpa isn't exactly the best route to take but I had many many reasons to. I can only take so much.

    It is a shame when a woman is taken advantage

    of. Woman was created to enhance not be token down by a man. I really try to avoid being used. It is bad enough what could happen out of our control. It is really not good to take woman for granted.

    Enough Is Enough!

    Ok, I have finally snapped! I enjoy helping people, I like to be nice and treat others fairly, I have great work ethics and have always busted my back in doing my job to the fullest. I am sick and tired of having to cover for everyone's bloody laziness when it comes to work. 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 have this friend that is needy,

    dependent, and relies on others. She asked me for rides a lot along with other favors. We’ve been friends for a long time, since high school. I’ve helped her or done her favors. A while ago, I started to notice that she doesn’t really help me or do me favors. When I...

    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...
