    Sorry

    ....I have always been the one to hold your

    hand. I will pull you back from the edge. I will catch you as you fall. I will dive into the river for you. I will hold you and let you lean on me, and when the night comes and you're too tired to return home, I will carry you there. I will carry you til you find your footing...

    Like to Go Crawl In a Cave . . .

    And "lick my wounds" like a bear or an animal would - getting wounded by another human turns me into a silent animal.

    No One Really Cares About My Problems, Anyway

    My dad kind of walked out on us recently, and i told my so-called 'best friend' and she said, 'ahh no worries...' and then she went back to talking about her new boyfriend. None of my other friends care, and I don't think they know what to say which is okay. I don't mind that as...

    It's Never a Burden

    I just want everyone to know that it's impossible for you to burden me with your problems.  I enjoy helping people with their problems and it brings me joy when someone's problem is solved because of me.  So don't ever hesitate to tell me about your problems.  I'll...

    Twisted, But True

    I am generally the first person to offer a shoulder cry on or a friendly ear because I like being there for my friends. However, for some reason, I always feel like when I have problems, its an imposition to vent or talk about them. Part of it, I'm sure is because, for a long...

    Mind You...

    ...I really don't like burdening ANYONE with my problems as I've always kept most of my emotions and thoughts close to my chest. Those on here are probably the only ones that really know more than a glimpse of how I feel most of the time, but even then, I try to avoid overly...

    I Hate It

    I really hate telling my friends about my probelms because then it makes me feel like they are worring about me. I hate that, that's the only reason I won't talk to them about my probelms most of the time. So don't feel bad if I don't talk to you about my probelms...

    Omg!

    Maybe I'm a little too old for "OMG". That's what I get for trying to stay relevant to my son. Anyway, I saw this group name and thought, "Holy Christmnaas Trees, Batman! That's ME!". To be honest, most of my friends could probably care less about my problems. I sent out a...
