    This weekend was tough.

    It usually is. It's nice to have weekends away from work to spend time together. What a crock. As always. I feel so empty. Robotic. There isn't anything that keeps me going. I feel like I am wasting away. Sometimes I know where I should be heading. Sometimes I don't. I feel...

    My husband has an anger problem.

    I'm really passive and soft. But little things will turn him into this mean raging man. The rest of the time he's super affectionate. Often inappropriately so in public. If I don't feel super kissy because I'm tired or stressed from school or busy working on something, he can...

    For over a year I have settled

    for so much less than I deserve. I deserve the truth in a relationship. I deserve a mate that I don't have to share.

    All I ever truly wanted from a relationship.

    . Was to be there for someone to show someone how it feels to be loved. That's the true beauty of a relationship. To give someone your all and your commitment. To have their needs on your mind at ALL times. So many failed attempts. When you start realizing that you don't get the...
