    Unwanted From Birth

    I guess it steams from child hood and feeling as if no one really wanted me but my mom, as the saying goes "that’s a face only a mother could love" at times I truly feel unlovable, as if I doomed to be a lonely old cat woman, whose only companion is her many cats. See I was...

    that one person. I kinda really need it, I'm broken inside and I need that one person to help fix me. I feel like a brown dried up leave that everyone steps on.

    Not Even In A Romantic Way

    Just in a friendship over the years I've had a lot of friends but I just never like they really wanted me around. Almost like they just felt bad for me so they hung out with me in pity. I don't know if that was the reality of just my own self hatred but it sucks.

    I'm so sick of being ignored

    and abandoned. I know that I push people away, but all I want is for someone to want me. People always cut me out, and it makes me feel so worthless. I just can't handle being alone anymore.

    I Want To Be Wanted And Good Enough.

    I feel like nobody wants me around. When I was in middle and high school, my friends that I've known for six years would always do things together, and leave me out. I used to be a girl, okay. My grandmother always wanted me to have long hair, stylish clothing, pierced ears...

    Being Wanted

    I feel pushed out and unwanted. My family doesn't much care, my friends just leave me as soon as something or someone more important comes along and I don't have a girlfriend. The furthest I've ever gotten with a girl is a kiss, but that was when I was 14. I feel like it's...

    To feel wanted..You would think

    that being newly married (since Sept.27, 2013) I should not be feeling "unwanted". But I have been made to feel this way just 2 months into it. Totally ignored emotionally AND sexually. So...I went looking for it in all the wrong places and now I'm paying for it and worst of all...

    All I ever feel in my house

    or in my life is alone. I don't think anyone's ever made me feel wanted and I feel so alone and mentally tired. I feel like I don't deserve anything and I'm so close to relapsing I can't do this anymore.
