I Made a Fool of Myself In Matters of the Heart

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 278 People

    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.

    And I Have Learned From It

    I've been such a fool---and that foolishness drove me to do the craziest things i have done before, but after that really rough storm, i became a better, wiser, stronger person. Foolishness can also teach us something, and i'm glad it did to me. I'm a smart girl, and I know I...

    ...and Just Kept Right On Doing It...

    My story is probably not uncommon: five years ago, I fell, hard, for someone who looked a lot like they were falling for me too. there was massive chemistry, and he went out of his way to spend tons of time with me - still does. But, before anything could get further than...

    Affairs Of The Heart & Other Foolishness

    Years ago, I had an affair. I won't say it was my proudest moment but I don't apologize for it either.   If people choose to judge me, so be it. Yes, I made a huge fool of myself.    I fell for all the classic lines.    I ignored all the warning signs.   I chose to...

    Am I Asking For Too Much?

    You know that quote from Marilyn Monroe? If you can't handle me at my worst, you don't deserve me at my best... I think this applies really well to the guys I've been with. Or at least that's the only way I know how to see it, I've been an emotional wreck I know that, but I...

    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...

    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.

    It Was All Part of the Learning Process

    I look back at life and think of all th things that humans do while learning to stand on their own two feet.  One thing that we all have in common is that we have allowed ourselves to be fools when dealing with matters of the heart.  I don't think anyone can honestly...
