    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...

    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...

    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...

    Drama Days!

    I often have drama days, not caused by me, but others around me. And I often get sucked in, by some jerk having a bad day and taking it out on the nearest person... which mostly happens to be me. This happens online or offline. :-/ Either way, I try not to get my friends...

    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...

    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...
