    My Misfortune.

    I have shared a story here about this guy before.  When I was almost fifteen, I met this guy online, he was nineteen.  His lies started right then and there.  He was a pathological liar, he didn't know how to stop, I don't think.  I don't have time list his...

    I have always been emotionally abused by others

    at my school, but it really took a toll on me when a new nanny came into my life. There are many situations but I'll only talk about a couple. One time she came to my school claiming to be my mother, then she emptied out my locker and brought everything home in a trash bag. She...

    So I ran away a couple of days ago,

    and they made me come back (they= police and family). They said they were gonna change and so far that's bullshit. I am leaving when I turn 17 whether they like it or not, they cannot make me stay. I am done with my mother telling me that I am a mean and ugly ***** . She says...

    I Have Been In a Too-common Way

    I feel I have been emotionally abused too, in a way that is becoming all too common these days. Last year, out of the blue, my wife said " I want a divorce". Now after 35 years together, and not having any obviously big problems, this can be pretty flattening. I tried...

    I'd say it has affected the way I maintain

    intimate relationships in my adult life. I have severe trust issues due to certain boundaries being broken and certain obligations that were expected to be carried out, never being carried out. It's hard accepting what happened, but being able to talk about it does help.

    I Don't Think I Could Ever Love Myself

    I'm going to try my best to keep this short for you guys. Ever since I was little, I can remember loving food. Especially sweets and carbs, and just about everything else that is terrible for you. I would always out-eat my big brother and both my parents, and snack time was my...

    You went on your way

    He finally contacted me this morning.

    It was not a closure at all. It was still a bunch of contradictions. He had the nerve to say, "_____, I know you've been going through a lot of pain. I don't want to pursue a relationship with you. I don't want to continue on. There are no answers to give because you've done...

     I know he has treated other girls this way. It started when I was 17, before I fell pregnant. I was kicked out of home at 17, as my mother has never liked me, and after my parents got divorced and she kept the house, and my sisters and I, it all went wrong. Two of my sisters...

    Found a picture of my dog today.

    He died last year. I grew up with him ever since I was 2. He reminds me of every single happy memory I had. Now I can't stop crying. Lovely.

    My step mom emotionally abuses me.

    I'm not sure if she understands how much it hurts, but she does it consistently. I am the bad child in my family, I have accepted that I guess. She doesn't tell me I'm stupid but she takes every chance she gets to put me down. She points out my GPA is only a B+ when her kids...
