    Getting up, getting dressed, walking out after breafast, speeding down the crackled street, I search for a friend to meet. She calls me out, gives me a hug, and cries into my shoulder. I hold her close, cheer her up, make her laugh about her tear-filled make-up. Now, she's fine...

    Tilsy lives with her single mother in Croydon, London and is 16 today. She pulls herself wearily out of bed mouthing the words 'my birthday' She opens her eyes and stumbles towards the bathroom, sleepily turns on the shower and smiles at herself in the mirror. Downstairs Harriet...

    I have been dating a woman

    for a year now, she is great in every aspect and I trust our relationship over anything. I have one issue that I constantly arises. In the whole time we have been together she has only came on to me once. I am the one to start all physical activity. This may seem like a silly...

    Because...

    I took it for granted for so long.  I used to have a few people that needed me.  And one by one, either the bond was ripped off like a bandage or the relationships changed and the cold emotional distance just seeped in over time.  I had a realization a few days ago...but I...

    Ramble

    I have a friend who tries to buy people and it gets a litte awkward. There is one girl that she has a truly soft spot for though. She buys her drinks, lets her stay at her house for days and sometimes weeks, lends her her clothes when she's cold and etc. The thing is, once she...

    It's Like This...

    Practice desirability in everything you do. Make people want you to be around them, make them want to be around you. Need to be needed!

    It's Just A 'want'.

    I crave being needed. I want to help people; it makes me feel so good to be called on for help. Of course I have a family of my own now and there's not a lot of time with them I'm willing to trade, but I've always wanted to be needed. I feel my purpose in life is to help people...

    Pisces Giver

    I am undoubtably a giver.  I need a purpose to exist.  I thrive on being supportive to those in need.  I give and regenerate love inside of myself so very quickly that I feel a need to give away in abundance.  Do you need a hug?  Do you need...

    Let Me

    I need to be needed like some people need to be the center of attention. I don't want to be the center of attention I always try to slip in under the radar. All I have EVER wanted is to be wanted and needed. To be the only person who they want to listen when they need to vent...

    Make It Alright

    I need somebody to need me. I want to be able to make them better and let them know that it's going to be okay. I want to be the one who can fix a bad day with a smile, or can mend a broken heart with a hug. I want to be the one who will make you laugh when you're feeling down...
