    I have the inability to share my feelings

    regularly. Then today I did, tried to explain myself so that my friends can understand me and my mood disorders better. Just made things worse and I feel like my previous no feel no talk policy is best. I feel like such a fool.

    Now that it's over, I see

    that I myself bear a part of the blame, but not in its entirety. Fools, really, both of us, a train ride that was destined to finally jump the rails at some point and never get back on track. I'm done grieving over you, and I am done with the bitterness and jealousy and hurt. I...

    It Was All Part of the Learning Process

    I denied my best friend a relationship

    because of his religion, and we hadn't talked in two weeks. Today I asked to talk to him so I could apologize. We talked and he said he wants nothing to do with me. Any advice?

    More Than Once

    I am guilty... I had time and time again trusted guys too quickly and thought they were being honest with me, like I am with them. But, had to find out the hard way who they truly were. So, I was a fool, giving them love and understanding that they didn't deserve.
