    Why Even Think These Things?

    I'm not the jealous kind, but just lately I've been having thoughts pop into my head of my boyfriend - not cheating on me (I sincerely don't think he would going on his past record) but in a theoretical "life after me", i.e. if we ever split up. I see images of him with a girl...

    I Shouldn't...

    I shoudn't feel this way. I've always been insecure and I get paranoid about things I really shouldn't. It could possibly stem from the mental illness present on my dad's side of the family and the emotional troubles on both sides. I don't like my body although he loves it, most...

    Stupid Girl

    Fighting Tooth And Nail

    I dreamt last night that my partner of almost two years cheated on me with a couple of women (at the same time, I might add), with all the graphic detail you can doubtless imagine. And then I seriously beat him up - he had bruises all over his face. Then in real reality, he woke...

    I'm probably insecure more times than I'm not. I've been trying for years to figure it out and try to fix it but it's still very much a work in progress
