    I don't feel loved or appreciated.

    Why is it so hard to get that feeling from someone?

    One of the best things in life is finding

    someone who knows all of your flaws, mistakes, and weaknesses, but still thinks you're completely amazing.

    Something is missing in my marriage.

    I love my husband more then anyone in this world. He has been my rock the past 9 years we have been together, but something is just not there. He doesn't listen to me. I've told him how important it is for me to get a card on my birthday or anniversary. My birthday just passed...

    I need to be loved and appreciated.

    . We all do.. I need people who DO understand me.. who DON'T let me down. I need them .. but they also need me. ~~~~~~ Everyone feels unloved at some point ... why?! it has no use! Everyone is perfect on the inside, and thats all that matters in love right!! The inside matters...

    From a question somebody posted today: Q: Give

    me ONE reason why you're worthy to be fought for? My answer: Because once I've made up my mind that I want you, I'll stick around through the tough parts. Because if you're honest with me and give me the information I need, I am willing to do anything in my power to help you...

    I know I do, and I know everyone else does

    as well. Even though many of us find ourselves pushing the closest people away, we always have that deep hope that they'll come back. That they'll return, but there's always the potential there will come a time when they don't. So cherish the people you have! Don't only cherish...

    I have been very lucky in this life of mine.

    Or is that even true? My world always appears so full of light. The outer rims of my soul like burning torches of fire in the night. People around me smile. I feel warmth exude from their now healthy spirit. It happens to me everyday. My heart shouts out with joyful glee that...

    After so many years of devoting myself to one

    person... It's painfully hard to know that they've changed. And I no longer have what once was. I want to be held and cuddled. Soft kisses and tender whispers. I want to know that I still matter...?

    Did you ever think that it is possible to sleep

    with someone without having a physical relation? Just laying there, talking for hours about how we feel, what we love, memories etc. Just enjoying to be with someone.

    After a breakup, there is a great feeling of

    The last holdout of consciousness,

    in a yawning gulf into which thoughts are painted. Shadow breaths dance upon ephemeral skin. Memories of graceful shapes that bring fleeting sensations of a phantom touch. The embrace of a warm ghost. Sputtering synapses form a crude replica of the infinitely complex scent of...

    Without being loved and appreciated,

    then what makes you ever feel like there's any motivation to continue? What need is there to live if you have no love with anyone at all and you're just existing? Yet, if you're not loved, then either you're hated by others or not cared for at all. If someone did like you, they...

    Hate when you give your heart to the one person

    who you believed to be your dream partner, best friend, soul mate but along the journey you start to notice the lack of appreciation and affection which makes you unhappy. No matter how many times your actions remind them how important they are in your life, they don't seem to...

    I'm just a girl. I love being called pretty,

    but I'll never believe it. I'm not always right, but hate admitting I'm wrong. I'm almost always smiling, but it's not always real. I can be read like an open book, but hide so much. I work hard at things, but don't always get what I deserve. I'm just a girl. (c)

    that maybe I am secretly hideous. I never thought I was, and I never look in the mirror and think I am unattractive. Yet I can't seem to meet anyone who is interested in me. I feel like men just look right through me. Is it possible that what I see in the mirror and what...
