    I looked everywhere, twice, and there is no welcome stamp on my body so why in the hell am I always treated like a door mat? Work, family, home, all day long I get swarmed with people wanting my help, asking me to fix this or that, and damn it all I can't say no to people who...

    So many times I try to give ppl "the benefit of

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...
