    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 a breakup, there is a great feeling of

    loneliness that overcomes us. For so long, we felt that we were a part of something bigger than ourselves. Suddenly we are left with the realization that we no longer have another to lean on. The loneliness is overwhelming. We have become used to having someone with us all the...

    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.

    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...

    What do u do when ur significant other shows

    you no affection? I've been in a relationship for 4.5 years and we have 1 2 year old son together. After our son was born he just stopped being affectionate. He claims he loves me and wants to be with me bit he doesn't kiss me hold me or compliment me in anyway. Is this normal?

    I just want to be held.

    I lay in bed at night and sleep alone. I do have a bf, but he's barely ever home because he's an over the road truck driver. I've been lonely lately and just want to have that safe, warm, secure feeling of his arms around me. I want to lay my head on his chest and my arm around...

    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)

    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.

    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...

    Valentine's Day a cruel holiday

    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...

    After so many years of devoting myself to one
