    Learning To Deal

    I come from a very large family. I've never been alone and yet I have been lonely my entire life. For some reason, unknown to me, most of my family has never accepted me. Some of them actually tell others, in the family, that if they associate with me to not bother associating...

    Need To Get This Out Of My Chest.

     I was born out of wedlock. What so many would consider a bastard child. My father was married when he met my mom. My mother knew he was married, but he promised her that he would get a divorce. They loved each other, but apparently he couldn't get a divorce from his wife...

    Recently, my biological father contacted me. Took him a while to find me again, but he's made me see that I'm not alone, or strange with my little quirks. I feel better, I have siblings now that welcome me with open arms, and it certainly is fantastic to know that they all have...

    Just Not Good Enough

    I am the eldest sister of four siblings. I have always been protective and my personality is such that I would suffer or do practically anything to keep my sisters safe, if needed. I have always been that way. I also like to be close to my family members. Well, "like" isn't the...
