    I Don't Like Upseting People

    I hate hurting other people. But I kind of think its better to upset them now than continue hurting them in the future. I broke up with my boyfriend last Monday, as we were at each others' throats: basic personality clash, values, beliefs... We love each other to pieces...

    In the moment of getting upset

    and overreacting I upset people close to me even when I don't mean to. upsetting you hurts more than when you upset me.... people close to me are more important than my ego and feelings, etc. this isn't as well written as the way you write with passion and emotion but its the...

    I seem to lack with patience, though only with some people.  Most certainly, one of them being my husband. We have this bizarre love, hate relationship, mostly hate, but nonetheless, I am sure I have probably in some way hurt him today.

    Take a Breather

    One thing I learned (that I should have learned a long time ago) is to take a step back from the situation before things escalate. In the height of passion/anger whatever, you can end up saying things you really can't take back.  At least not 100% of it.  I look back...

    A Good Man

    As most of my EP friends know, I am living with my husband turned roommate.  I told him back in May that I didn't think things were working.  And I re-iterated that I wanted to see other people just last month. He knew about my trip to Texas to meet a guy I ...

    My girlfriend suddenly lashed out at me a couple of days ago... I haven't been caring about her like I was before. I hope I can turn this around before it's too late...

    My boyfriend and my best friend won't talk to me

    and it's really irritating. My best friend thinks im fake for not going to the dance with her but I wanna go with my boyfriend but since my boyfriend won't talk to me I'm probably going with her anyways. My boyfriend won't talk to me because my friend said I kissed somebody else...

    Fools Rush In.

    For a long time, I had a complex about hurting people I cared about, although this didn't seem to extend to my family, oddly enough. As a result, I paid a lot of attention to and diligently endeavoured  to become the sort of person who *didn't* hurt nor upset the people I...

    Careless Words

    I'm never good at expressing just what I'm thinking, things always sound better in my head.  One perfect example of this was when I upset one of my best friends by saying I was amused by his Facebook status.  He had changed it to say "...loves China more than his...

    Hello, I cause emotional pain and I don't know why I do it, but I do. Is it attention seeking? Am I just innately not a good person? Am I just trying to find a reason for being here... I made friends with someone before, after reaching a peak of friendship I stopped talking to...

    I Felt Harrible

    My girlfriend keeps saying she worthless and want to die, so i did the same to her and i made her realize she has hurt me but she ended up crying and i couldn't stop saying sorry. We might not want to live but we both want the other to live.

    Very Very Much

    It is a silence that is tinged with a soreness of fresh pain, yet is not allowed to be spoken of between me and him.  It has to be forgotten about according to him as that is how things are resolved, when they are forgotten. He no longer will trust me and due to his...

    We Were Best Friends ...

    ... but you loved me in a different way. I couldn't see you that way. But we remained friends. Years of friendship--eight years of friendship. It seems to be gone now. I dated other men and you watched, wondering why it wasn't you. It just couldn't be. You were different to me...
